This the last week of October, the waterfall on Arunachala which has remained dry for sometime, has come back to life thanks to recent rains. The waterfall, starting at a height of 250 feet is located on the southern slope of the hill in front of the Government Arts College.

According to local residents and representatives of NGOs engaged in afforestation work, there was no water flow in the falls till the recent rains. Even last year there was a good flow only for about a month after the torrential storms.

Local residents and college students are making the trek through a short stretch of green and tranquil forests to picnic near the waterfall. However this year workers for the afforestation NGOs are implementing Reserve Forest regulations and sending people away from the restricted area.
