About Mallalli Falls (Water Fall)

voted as clean

Mallalli Falls, which is situated in the foothills of Pushpagiri, is known as one of the most beautiful water falls in Coorg. The origin of the fall lies at the point where Kumaradhara River takes plunge over 200 feet. Monsoon season is the best time to visit the fall, when water rises high and flows with full speed.

"Quirky Trail to unexplored Mallali Falls, Coorg"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Oct 11, 2017
We started our day Coorg trip with a drive to Mallalli Falls. These falls are little offbeat but gorgeous as heaven. Mallalli Falls deceits in the foot of Pushpagiri Hill Ranges, where Kumaradhara river takes a plunge over 200 feet. The Fall from height creates a scenic view. Water falls into a gorge surrounded by lush green mountains. It is the fascinating beauty little away from Madikeri. The sound of Snow-white waterfalls and the calmness surroundings will enforce you to bond with Nature. It Monsoons are best time to see these falls. This fall are around 80 from Madikeri and the road till this fall is beautiful with some breathtaking landscapes in between. It was drizzling when we reached there, which added to the beauty. To have the whole view, you must descend a lot of steps. But it is worth it !! If you are planning to visit Coorg next, take time and get down to feel the breeze of this mesmerizing falls.

"One of the best waterfalls I have seen"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Aug 22, 2016
The experience of visiting this place is heavenly, especially during monsoon. Last 3 km, you have to either walk or hire jeep. From the drop point, the waterfall is visible and then there are steps to go closer to the falls. More closer you go to it, more you will appreciate its beauty.

"This is the falls to visit if in Coorg"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Mar 21, 2016
Very beautiful, the trek to the falls is the best. Very clean. Requires 4x4 enabled jeeps if you have to visit. Very dangerous, so stay safe. Watch out for Leeches. Best time to visit is during Rainy season to experience the true beauty of the falls.

"Pristine waterfalls"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Nov 23, 2015
Mallalli waterfalls is a pristine spot situated in the heat of Coorg that gushes like milk from about 140 feet gorge. A moderate trek of 1. 5 km through coffee plantations leads us to the view of waterfall. Another 350 odd steep steps will take us to the foot of the falls. The trek is not for the faint hearted. The view of the falls is breathtaking. Its a must visit spot for nature lovers and is located about 12km from Madapur.

"Dangerous falls"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jul 4, 2015
The waterfalls is good but playing is risky and dangerous. Should be very careful here, must climb down around 300 steps to reach the falls. The road which leads to this place is worst.

"Awesome monsoon destination"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted May 11, 2015
A must go destination for those who want to enjoy nature with a little bit adventure. Around 1 km trek will lead to one of the most beautiful falls of Karnataka. If you visit Coorg in monsoon never ever miss it, be careful about leeches. Shoes are recommendable no food available nearby.

"No cell phone signal, dangerous place"

  • 0.5/7
  • Posted Jan 19, 2015
Worst and deadly dangerous place because no cellphone signal, no road for last 3 kms, drinkers enjoying spot, 700 steps down to see the falls. My vehicle breakdown there but 25 kms no workshop, and finally the local rowdies attacked my driver because he is Tamilan, worst experience I ever had, this spot is only for drinkers.

"Beauty at the botom of the earth"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted Oct 28, 2014
This place is for youngsters only as you have to travel in jeep and then walk for about 2 kms to reach the falls. The amazing non polluted spot gives you a great relief and if you go down to the falls about 500 metres or more to reach the bottom falls you can enjoy more. No closeby hotels or stay arrangements. Few homes will provide you food. But while going to the falls on your way you have to order and then while coming back you can have nice food.

"Had nice and adventurous experience in rain"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Oct 16, 2014
Had nice and adventurous experience in rain. Didn't get the chance to take bath and play in water as we were very later by that time. Adventurous experience as the road is very very bad due to rain and insects like leech, snakes and Scorpions.

"Waterfall in centre of the forest"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Mar 29, 2014
Mallalli falls is situated in Pushpagiri mountains. An amazing waterfalls view in the rainy season. Other season it's just empty. Travelling here is a biggest task. You need to hire a private jeeps to reach this place and should be able to walk for 1 km from the dropping place..It's a hidden place.
