Also known as the 'Grand Cascade' and situated at a distance of 4 km from the Kodaikanal Bus Station, the Pambar Falls are formed by the town reservoir flowing towards the south and forming the Fairy Falls which further continue to join the Vaigai River. The falls can be reached by following a steep and slippery path from behind the Pambar house. A zig-zag stream flows down the Pambar Ravine which falls over some slippery rocks during its twisty course. A pond-like formation is formed at the bottom which is perfect for bathing as well as swimming, and as you go downstream, you will witness three to four more adjacent falls.
