Yercaud Kiliyur Falls is a popular resort for picnickers. It is a beautiful and picturesque spot with a drop of 75 feet in a Sylvan setting with rocky ridges and small caves.

The surplus water from the Yercaud Lake and other slums of the Shevaroys Hills fall deep into the Kiliyur valley in an amazing 300ft. fall. The views from the bottom and the top of the kiliyur falls are wonderful. It will be a amazing sight in the monsoon time when the water levels are at the maximum. The best time to visit this place is immediately after the monsoons.
Kiliyur Falls – Road Approach
Vehicles allowed are far as the start of the falls where you will find additional parking place available for your vehicle. Sometimes in a busy day one would find difficult to park especially four wheeler. From the parking place one could climb down steeply to about 500-700 mts., to find steps. The steps lead to the bottom of the falls. The steps are steep and narrow, which makes it difficult for visitors to cross one another. Moreover the steps are made of iron. Therefore children’s should be kept under adult supervision.
Climbing down and up the steps is a challenging task for the old aged people with joint pains. Adventurers will love the place and will get their thirst for adventure quenched by exploring other places near the falls.
