The 3km inside track from Potanar is very cool and people coming to Chitradhara love to drive on this track. The moment one reaches Chitradhara one can see a temple situated which is quite common in most of the tourist places. After few steps one can clearly see the water falling in steps. The fall is very beautiful as it is able to show two different aspects first on the upper side of waterfall there are only rocks and rocks while at the lower side it is decorated with greenery. This combination makes it look very beautiful.

Here the water is falling from all the sides, hence there are many small small falls which adds to the beauty of place as shown in figure. Most of the waterfalls are very big and huge are not in the approach of an individual but its not the case here, one can reach and enjoy every aspect of the fall, the rocks lying here and there and the green bushes , the uneven tracks makes the visit adventurous. One can bath in the fall, people love to play in water over here.Chitradhara

Rainy Season or a cloudy day is the best time to visit Chitradhara, as while riding to Chitradhara one will surely enjoy the cool breeze, the track, the view, the water, greenery and the rocks. Chitradhara where "Chitra" means painting and "dhara" means flow i don't know how the name came into existence but my interpretation is that this place makes u feel that one is part in the painting.
