Why to visit Monkey Falls

Monkey Falls, a tranquil destination, is only 65 kilometres from Coimbatore, a busy metropolis. The captivating cascade unites the entire picture, which is surrounded by lush forests and rugged rocks. The buzzing Monkey Waterfalls catch the attention of everyone within hearing distance. The water splashes excitedly on the rocks before plunging into a cellophane-clear pool.

White foam bubbles form where the water meets the pool as it cascades down like a massive waterspout. The body of water is surrounded by spiky shrubs that seem to be capping it, and anyone in the area will be overcome by the sweet nectar scent of the flowers. The Monkey Falls' fringes, which fall from a height and crash against the mountain's slopes, provide a cushion for the fall. Numerous monkeys swinging across the branches amusingly, tiny birds chirping joyfully, and frogs jumping around the pouring water. You will undoubtedly feel the soul-stirring thrill of seeing this waterfall in all its splendour all the way home.
