Tada falls trek guide in words :

Just after almost 200 meters from the parking, you will cross a water stream. After crossing the stream, you will have to continue walking along the trail. The trail is pretty clear and visible except at some points where there are only rocks and there are no helping signs for the trail also.

After another half an hour to 45 mins from crossing the first stream, you will cross the same stream another time. You will reach a Shiva temple after crossing the stream. The simple funda is to follow the stream in case you feel you are lost.

After Shiva temple, the trail is not proper. There will be some people around Shiva temple, ask the direction from them. Just after the Shiva temple, you will again have to cross the stream and then look out for the trail. Trek level is difficult from here as there is no proper trail and you will have to keep hopping across the rocks and boulders to reach to the waterfall. However, always try to listen to the waterfall sound. While returning fill your water bottles as it becomes hot while returning. Try to start as early as possible to spend more time at the falls.
