Q. How to go Kolapara?
A. If you have a group of upto 5 people, you can take a CNG which will be cheaper. For a big group, need to take “Chander gari”. Be aware, CNGs do not go to Kolapara because of muddy road when there is heavy rain. Car will be the only option that time.

A. There is no restaurant at Kolapara. You need to have breakfast and take food from Srimangal. Although at the last visit, I say some people selling Biriani at the foot of the falls. You can take a risk if you like about the launch.
Q. Is it possible for taking girls?
A. Be aware that you need to walk 2-3 hours through the forest, hills, and zhiris (way of stone bolts with knee deep flowing water over) to reach the falls, and come back in the same way. So not only girls, even men should not go there unless have that physical and mental strength.
