VELLORE:Amirthi falls, which has come alive after incessant rain in the district for the last few days, is once again a sight to behold. Youngsters flocked to the cascading falls on the foothills of Jawadhu Hills on Thursday and more are expected to converge to the Falls in the coming days.

It is an exciting sight to see the Falls gushing in full force. Located in Amirthi Reserve Forest, around 800 metres from the Amirthi zoo it will surely draw more tourists and fun-loving persons . 

“Even a decent rainfall will result in a flow of water in the falls. But, the continuous rain in the last few days rejuvenated the falls after several years,” said Ranger of Amirithi P Murugan.

The flow of water will remain for at least a month even though there is little rain in the days to come. 

“We expect more tourists, particularly from the surrounding areas of Vellore in the coming weeks as tourists to witness and enjoy the Falls,” he said.  A group of youngsters, who enjoyed somersaulting from the rocks into the Falls, said that they never saw the Falls with so much water. Jalagambarai falls near Tirupattur has also turned into a hot tourist spot, the youths said.
