Our Suggestions
  • Chenna Suruli Falls are best seen in the month of June when there is the SUMMER FESTIVAL held by the Tamilnadu Government. However, if you want to enjoy the falls in silence, then the rest of the months are best. However, Suruli Falls can be visited throughout the year.
  • Suruli Falls are on the way to Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary. So if you going to see the National Park, then take time out to see the Falls too.
  • In and around the Falls there are no snacks bounties, so its better if you take them along.
  • If there are kids with you, hold their hands all the time. The Falls are quite deep and there is no way out.
  • It rains heavily in the rainy season, so take along umbrellas or raincoat. You can also hire them for a few days.
  • Do not litter around. You have to pay fine if you do so.
