The Tamil Nadu forest department closed the KovaiKutralam Falls for the public due to heavy inflow after the continuous downpour in the Western Ghats. The falls would now be opened for tourists with the ebb of water flow.
A forest officer said that district forest officer T K Ashok Kumar had ordered to close the falls for tourists due to heavy waterflow in the past two days.


M Senthilkumar, assistant conservator of forests, said, “We have subsequently stopped online booking to visit the falls and would return the amount to the tourists, who have already made the online bookings.”


Ashok Kumar said that the ecotourism center at Baralikadu in Karamadai forest range was open for tourists on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 4pm. To quote Ashok Kumar, “Tourists have to register on www.coimbatorewilderness.com to visit Baralikadu. We charge adults a fee of Rs. 550 and children (aged between 5 and 13) Rs. 450. Coracle rides in Bhavani and bathing in the river in the evening are part of the eco-tourism activities. Tribal people will serve them lunch. Visitors can use their own vehicles or public transport to reach Baralikadu.”


He said that the ecotourism center at Poochamarathur in Karamadai forest range, where three guest houses are available for tourists, was also open.
