In the amazing beauty of the Western Ghats is hidden a beautiful white wall of water flowing through the dense green forest known as the Banatheertham Falls. The Banatheertham Falls which is situated just over the Karaiyar Dam in the Tamirabarani River in the state of Tamil Nadu was largely unknown till the 90s until the popular Hindi movie Roja was shot here which also led the falls to be named Roja Falls.
The perennial waters of the falls ensure that one can witnesses its beauty all year round. The falls are accessible through a boat ride to the Karaiyar Dam which allows a great view of the waterfalls tucked in between the verdant hills. At the end of the boat ride one can trek for about ten minutes to reach even closer to the waterfalls and witness the unhindered power of the Banatheertham falls.
