Tourists wants to know what makes Kuskem waterfalls famous and so, here in this article I have personally visited the waterfall and gathered the vital information that I am sharing in this article.

Kuskem Waterfall holds appreciable scenic beauty because of the milky water that falls down from a great height.

Explore the beautiful Kuskem waterfall through the Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary and the remote Kuskem village.

Trek your way through the dense jungle to the Kuskem waterfall which is about 15 minutes from the road through the man-made way up to the waterfall.

Not recommended for senior citizens as the trek is uphill hence very tiresome and requires one to be physically fit to climb up all the way through the jungle keeping in mind the slippery rocks.

Kuskem Hiding Deep in Dense Jungles


The waterfall is actually hiding deep in the dense jungles and is not visible from a distance. The waterfall is amazing and the trekking is all the more adventurous.

The best period for visiting is during Monsoon; the vegetation in this period retrieves the succulent rich colour and looks very fresh.

What is the Kuskem Waterfall Ticket Price for Entry?


The entry is free but I am being given to understand that some villagers charge Rs. 20 during the peak time of the waterfall thereby also providing a free changing room if anyone desires.

The suitable time to visit is from after 9:00am to 6:00pm or in other words before the sunset as it is a wild area and restricted as well.

The forest department has made rest shelters and changing rooms at one or two locations.
