Come spring, the whole garden is in full bloom and this attracts a variety of butterflies and bumblebees. The dancing musical water fountain within the garden keeps one captivated. The garden also has a toy train that appeals to kids and adults alike. The train ride offers a beautiful view of the endless expanse of sun-kissed mountains and valley surrounding the pavilion.

The place is ideal for trekking enthusiasts. Tickets should be purchased at the base before embarking on the trek.
The roar of the waterfall can be heard from the main road. The Cauvery water gushing through a gorge plummets down a 70 feet plunge to form the milky white falls. Though the waterfall is non-perennial and has water even in the summer months the best time to visit the waterfall is in monsoon or in the months of early winter when the stream swells with fresh rains. Here, the water tumults with an enormous force over the boulders into a calm pool causing a chilly mist cloud to rise and hover over the falls.

The most common of them are woodpeckers, robins, sparrows, scarlet minivet, Indian ibis, peacocks, etc.
