HolidayIQ Reviewer JeyaMohan M shares, “Courtallam is a wonderful tourist place to visit in South India, where you can see green scenic beauty. Enjoy bathing in fresh water from the falls.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Abdul Matin adds, “It is actually a torrent of water from the hill that splits into five separate streams as it comes down, thus facilitating five groups of people to enjoy the water. People believe that water flowing through these falls runs through the herbal forest before reaching to falls so it contains some herbal medicinal properties and it cures some skin diseases.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Asokakumar L Pandit shares, “The water falling on our body gives a unique experience. I spent 30 minutes under the water falls and enjoyed it very much. Very refreshing and rejuvenating bath indeed!

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sudipta Mukherjee shares, “In the month of May we as a family, were planning to visit any local place for 2-3 days. As the cab was going towards Mukutmanipur from Bankura the roadside scenery was very nice. While travelling on the dam you shall find a place where you can get down and reach the water. A Shiva Mandir is there.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Ishita says, “The place is beautiful to simply sit in silence and indulge into the coolness of the river wind. With small hillocks and jungles around and a wonderful, silent and clear water in front of you, this place simply freshens you up. The dam is built beautifully and the entire area is very clean.”
