It is not possible to go without taking a dip in these waterfalls and one can find both the young and the old enjoying their bath in it.

The Waterfall derives its name from Telugu and means “The Valley of the Thousand Lingas”, an apt name since the Falls are surrounded with rocks that resemble the lingams of Lord Shiva.
