 This is the place where you may be directed first by the Guards here in Athirapally.You are allowed go a little more nearer to the falls if the season is not the Monsoons. Guards will allow river bath in a safe place a few meters above this falls. But if it the time of monsoon, no way.I think you also may not be willing to take a bath in a roaring violent stream of river.
