About Suruli Falls

Coming down from the Meghamalai Range, Suruli River falls into two stages to form the waterfalls of the same name. From a height of 150ft, Suruli Falls cascades down in a raging whiteness to gather into a pool and then fall for another 40ft after a short distance.  At the foot of the falls, hundreds of enthusiastic tourists take a dip every day. Many of them are devotees; some of them are looking to cure their long-suffering ailment, while the rest are there just to enjoy the falls.
