Probably the best so called activity that you can do in Horton’s National Park, but still doesn’t worth the entrance fee. You can see soo many beautiful waterfalls for free, people are just lazy searching for them.

Very pretty and refreshing after the long walk there. It always amazes me what you find at such hight's. You are unable to swim there so enjoy the spray from the falls instead.

We loved this place. There was a rainbow on the day we went through the waterfall and there were people sunbathing on the rocks. A refreshing place through the Horton plains hike

Beautiful and spectacular but really not worth the effort. In order to see this you had to pay 3,500rupees plus hike non stop over 12km in rough terrain. Definitely give this a miss.

This is a beautiful waterfall. It is a bit of steep down hill to get close to it but worth going there.

Baker falls is an amazing natural site, but it is a little over shadowed by the entry price and it being over crowded.

Baker falls come midway enroute to world's end. The falls is full all round the year which looks very scenic. One cannot go near the falls or take a dip in the water for safety reasons.
