Thalaiyar Falls are one of the most popular tourist spots in Kodiaknala. This refreshing water falls is one of the highest falls in not just India but entire Asia with 975ft sheer drop. It is one of the widest as well with vicinity that ranges from 13th km on the Ghat road to Kodai. Thalaiyar Falls are also called as 'Rat Tail Falls' because of their appearance which resembles a silver line amidst lush greenery.
Located on the opposite hill from the Ghat Road, Rat Tail Falls cannot be reached directly as there is not direct path leading to the falls. However, one can enjoy its excellent beauty from the road side benches and spent some quality time amidst the refreshing setting. There are solid walls on both the sides of the Thalaiyar falls which leads into a more focussed glow of water making a rat tail shape. By walking along these walls one can reach near the centre of the falls.
For lovers of adventure and hiking, the peak of the falls makes for a worth hiking destination. However, if going for trekking, one needs to be highly cautious. In dry season, it is mush feasible to hike on foot which begins at the Manjalar Dam.

There are many other water falls as well in Kodaikanal which are equally enchanting such as Pambar Falls, Bear Shola Falls and Silver cascade.
