PRO TIP 1
Keep asking to go to Sajjikot, which is on the way towards the Umbrella waterfall, otherwise, no one will be able to guide you.
If you make a wrong turn in the narrow lanes, you’d end up far away from where you are headed.
Exactly after 3 hours, you’d reach Poona village, and there is a temporary roadblock after Poona.
Park your car at the last parking in Poona and hike down 15 minutes to Umbrella waterfall.
The Hike up from Umbrella is tough due to incline, so crawl slowly up in the slowest speed possible, or you will cramp your muscles. Hike up is 45 minutes if you are of average fitness.
Get to Umbrella Waterfall early so that you can get the best picture and enjoyment spots downstream from the site.
Families and even foreigners come to the place, just bring along male family members, just in case.
There is no misbehavior, death, or theft ever reported at Umbrella Waterfall Poona, Havelian.
