To visit this waterfall, one must walk down (trekking) the distance of about 5 kms which takes about 2 hours which includes a hike alongside  backwaters of Bhira dam, few forest cover and  small  water streams  and has to cross few rivers which is very risky, specially during monsoon when water level rises and becomes risky to cross.


One must  visit this place with a group and guide.


The best time to visit is after monsoon.
