Kutralam (Courtallam)

Courtallam or Kutralam is a heavenly place with a vegetation as exuberant as in neighbouring Kerala. Kutralam has been called the “Spa of South India” owing to its many waterfalls, which are said to have therapeutic properties.

Kutralam has seven waterfalls: the Main Falls, Five Falls, Old Courtallam Falls, Tiger Falls, Shanbagadevi Falls, Honey Falls and Palaruvi Falls. The water of these cascades flows through places rich with medicinal herbs, so that the falls themselves have been credited with therapeutic properties.

The best season to enjoy the falls runs from June to September. Access is sometimes forbidden after heavy monsoon rains.
