What visitors say about Charpa Waterfalls

This fall is located right on the roadside. It is very tall and sits in the middle of a forest but due to the nearby larger cousins- Athirappilli and Vazhachal waterfalls, people does not visit this often.

There are no fees to visit this falls, and I heard that it is seasonal (gets dry from March to May). During the heavy rains it overflows to the road, covering the bridge from where the falls can be viewed.
