River Attarum after following a mesmerizing journey through Yelagiri Hills rolls down in the form of Jalagamparai Waterfalls from the height of about 15 m. The result is a melodious and eye-pleasing cascade amidst dense forests that create an aesthetic treat for the eyes. As per the popular belief, bathing in its water can cure many skin issues, as the river before falling down gets infused with medicinal qualities of the herbal plants it passes through.
