Elk falls is located 7 kilometres away from Kotagir. So do not go to this spot hoping to see a herd of elk grazing in the vicinity, you will be left sorely disappointed. What you can see there will leave you mesmerised though. A beautiful western style residence from the days of the British Raj welcomes all who come to the Elk Falls.
The best season to visit would be during the monsoon, as it is during this time that the neighbouring Kookal Valley blooms with orange blossoms. A sight to behold it is indeed. Elk Falls is situated close to the Uyilathi Village.
The waterfall in itself is a treat to the eyes. The slow majesty of the mountain stream coupled with the torrential might of the fall gives an almost surreal aura to the place and its surroundings.
