My trip wasn't so successful as it didn't stop raining the whole time I was there and my room flooded a little because of it. This however wasn't such a problem because the hiking around the area is truly wonderful. It dons the phrase; has to be seen to be believed. A great time to check it out is during the monsoon in India because the heavy monsoon rains unleash some of the most spectacular waterfall you may ever see.
