Be watchful of slippery rocks when approaching the falls and also keep an eye for monkeys who are all around the falls.

Being located in Nerabailu village, Talakona forests has wide range of habitats like Slender Loris, Giant Squirrel, Panther, Porcupine, Sambar, Mouse Deer etc. If you are interested in trekking, then there is a perfidious trek route which leads you up the hill. The presence of herbal and medicinal floras in this forest, gives the water of the falls a healing effect. For tourist’s convenience, there is a 240 meter long canopy ropeway where you can have leisure walk watching the birds, monkeys thronging the Sandalwood trees on either side. Nearby the waterfalls, there is a Temple dedicated to Siddeshwara Swamy (Lord Shiva) where devotees pay visits in huge crowd during Shivrathiri Festival. Besides these attractions, many deep caves are believed to be scattered on the Talakona hills where once sages meditated in peace.
