Courtallam Experience: Courtallam is a great place to visit and enjoy especially if we visit at the right time with less crowd and a beautiful weather. (October;2010). The bath at small falls (3 to 5 falls ) was really great. One has to visit the location to really get the feeling of the bath, water flowing from a higher altitudes and with the force was simply superb.
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Since we stayed at a resort (Saaral resort) , the food provided at the resort restaurant was good. Also Tenkasi being nearby, there are plenty of small restaurants offering good breakfast and lunch, which are value for money.
Activities & things to do: Enjoy the bath at the falls. View the falls from a distance is also great. There are lots of small shops. Some are really good and creative work of art could be spotted.
