India - Tada Trek 2 - 011 - A hint of the 2nd falls around the corner

The harder to reach 2nd falls of Tada Falls, north of Chennai just visible around the corner. But to reach it in the rainy season here, you have to swim through this cool, deep canyon.

 

Swimming up a hidden canyon, vines filtering sunlight and dripping water from far overhead, the water cool and clear was in a word: Fantastic!

 

Unlike the lower set, we couldn't quite get under these falls as the current became too strong to swim that last few feet. Worth the climb to check out for sure.

 

In the dry season this may look very different and be accessible differently, even perhaps enabling you to climb past these falls to the highest and most dramatic ones. But in the rainy season, it is clear that there was no way forward without a helicopter.
