Best time to visit Yelagiri
Waterfalls from Jalagamparai : The Jalagamparai Waterfalls are one of the other places to visit in Yelagiri. This waterfall is a short distance from the main area of Yelagiri and is situated on the other side of the main area of the hill station.
Just 14 km from Tirupattur, the falls are situated. The famous Attaru River meanders from a considerable height through the mighty Yelagiri Hills and cascades down to form a stunning and captivating waterfall that is a renowned tourist attraction.
With most people choosing to stroll or trek to the falls, the cascades are just around a 5 km stroll from the Yelagiri downhill. This route is always closed for safety reasons, despite having a direct path from Yelagiri to the falls.

In the early days of November to around mid-February, the waterfall looks its genius best since the water that flows is in abundance compared to the other months of the year. In fact, the water flow from the falls decreases considerably during the summer months compared to a few years back.
