The weekend gone by witnessed unprecedented rush at over eight prominent waterfalls in Tamil Nadu bringing back the smile on the faces of traders and hoteliers. After the monsoon and the gradual receding of the nippy weather, visitors are heading for the waterfalls and boating yards across the state.
With vibrant western ghats and ecological hotspots, Tamil Nadu accounts for 47 waterfalls located in 12 districts spread across the state. “The period from February attracts huge crowds and the activity is sustained till the onset of summer.
Last year, many who had turned up at the Courtallam falls during peak summer were disappointed when the thundering cataract became a trickle,” an official said.
