Much like the whole of Chakrata, the Tiger Falls are tucked away in the daunting mountains and accessibility is an issue during some months a year. However, all travellers to Chakrata are in awe of these falls that stand at a magnificent height of a thousand feet and not visible to the eye unless seen from at least 50 meters distance, since the mountains conceal them so well. The climb down and the stairs back up are worth the pain and the ache in the legs. Since there are not many who know about this beauty, commercialisation and pollution is negligible. For the more adventures, rappelling across the falls is a must do!
Abseiling, also called rappelling, is the controlled descent down a rock face using a rope. Climbers use this technique when a cliff or slope is too steep and/or dangerous to descend without protection. Helmets may be worn to protect the head from bumps and falling rocks. Abseiling can be dangerous, and presents risks, especially to unsupervised or inexperienced abseilers. Abseiling is prohibited or discouraged in some areas, due to the potential for environmental damage and/or conflict with climbers heading upwards, or the danger to people on the ground.
