It is located over jamunamathur hills. Water flows approximately for 8 months of the year. The reflection of sun on the water falls glow like a silver sheet that is a beautiful and magnificent sight. This falls is one of the main attractions of tourists. People enjoy bathing at the bottom of this falls. This, much unknown small falls, is in the middle of the reserve forest, previously famous for its sandalwood trees, now hardly any are left.
The falls are silent, except for the pleasant-sounding gurgling of the flowing and falling waters and the occasional singing of the birds. In the evening, when Night's ghostly army, the grey shadows, creep out with noiseless steps, to chase away the lingering rear-guard of the light, the forest is quiet again.
