Courtallam WaterFalls - Awesome Vacation Destination!

I visited this place recently with family. Stayed there for 4 days and 3 night.. Enjoyed a lot. When it comes to stay, you can pick the best resort in Courtallam out of various options available there I choose Pearl beach.. One of the best restaurant over there. So, during your stay make sure not to miss any of the following scenic beauties:

Five Falls

Located at a distance of 4km away from the Courtallam town, as the name suggest the falls divide into five sections before surging vertically at the Aravankadu Pass. 3 out of 5 falls are open for the men, women on the other hand can access the other two falls. To give a religious touch to your vacation, you can prefer to visit the Swami Ayyappa and Vinayaka temple near to the waterfall.

Old Falls

Old falls are otherwise known as Pazhaya Courtallam is located by the road towards Tenkasi. Here you can see the 200ft fall featuring steps that are cut out on the rocks in order to break the fall of cascading water. This stream located 10 km away from the town features separate relaxation area for men and women. You even have option to get oil massaged. You even have New falls and Orchid falls at proximity. So, opt your stay at any best resort in Courtallam which is close to these three locations and save lot of your time.

Main Falls

Also known as Peraruvi, Main Falls is the biggest of the nine water falls in Courtallam. This waterfall cascades from a height of 60 m and is a worship location for the locals. November to January is recorded as off season as the stream dries up during these months. However, during the peak season, the location is a frequently visited one. So make sure your book your accommodation in best resort in Courtallam to avoid last minute surges in the price.

Lord Thirukuttralanathar

If you wish to have a religious visit during vacation while other members enjoy in the waterfalls, you have the Lord Thirukuttralanathar temple with numerous inscriptions for archeology lovers. The temple is rich in its scenic beauty with mountains and rivers surrounding all around. So, visit this location for a change from waterfalls.

Palaruvi Falls

Palaruvi is a highlighting tourist spot in Courtallam. It features water stream of 300 ft fall. Here you have a vantage point, which can be approached upon walking through the series of steps leading up.

Small Falls

Located just close to Main Falls, Small Falls is also tourist attraction of the region. The stream of water at the Small Falls is said to be abundant with herbal and therapeutic properties. You can come across steps near the falls for easy access to the falls and even separate areas for men and women to bath.

Shenbaga Falls

One can come across the Shenbaga on their way to Main Falls. This route is very much famous as a trekking route. So for adventure lovers, Shenbaga falls is a must visit. To add a religious pinch, you can visit the temple of Goddess Shenbaga Devi, which is of very high significance among the locals.

Honey Falls

Honey Falls is located 4 km away from the Main Falls and is called so as result of regular beehives formation on the face of the rock during the dry season. Thus waterfall is horseshoe shaped and cascades to form a small lake which amidst of rainforests and mighty rocks is itself an experience.

Nevertheless, if you aren’t interested in playing waters at the water fall, you can enjoy the scenic beauty accompanied with stay in any of the Courtallam resorts with swimming pool.

So, pack your bags today!

Kutralam

Kutralam is situated in Tamil Nadu and nearby Railway station is Tenkasi. Kutralam season starts in June 1st week when South west monsoon starts. The falls have many curative values especially for reducing body heat and many illness including mental imbalance.

One of the safest, cleanest waterfalls in India

Courtallam is near Kerala Tamil Nadu border, about 3 hours from Trivandrum and 1 hour from Trinelveni.
I travelled with family from Trivandrum.
There are multiple falls there - Tiger falls, Five Falls, Main Fall etc. The main fall near the temple is sight to behold, but Five Falls is the best to take a Bath.
Coutallam is an ideal weekend drive from Kerala or Tamilnadu ( Thenmala ecotourism, Palaruvi waterfalls are about 1 hour from Coutallam - we stopped there on the way back

Nature's gift, Courtallam

December, and January months are very best for Travellers. We advise Newly married couples, Young and Youth, Children and Middle age people. We cannot suggest old people to go there. Everyone should visit Temples, and Water Falls, in between of 10 AM to 4 PM only. Its very dangerous to visit during Night Time and early in the morning as per as our knowledge is concerned. All the best to every Tourist and a Happy Journey to all - Baburao. K, Visakhapatnam, Mobile No. 8754915582

A place of water falls, Courtallam

A good place to visit in December. A place between two average cities Shenkotai and Tenkasi. Many average home stays available. Good tolerable restaurants in that places only, have to take a ride. The falls are nice to see, but not so nice with so many people taking Bath. Five falls and old falls very nice to see. There is an old temple on a hill nearby, probably the highest point to take a nice view around. Tenkasi is only 5 km away and has nice temple-Tenkasi Kasi Vishwanathar temple . Palaruvi, Kollam, Kerala is only about 30 km away is a very beautiful sight.

Courtallam-An awesome city

I studied in Seyad Residential School, Five Falls, Ilanji road, Courtallam for 6 years and have visited the falls several times. Although water flow depends on seasonal rains, June to October and then Nov to December, the monsoon rain pours in Kerala, and so one of the five falls - Main falls, Puli falls, Shenbaga falls or old Kutraalam has sufficient water all the time. When we have holiday, I used to go to any of these falls with my friends and have a good Bath and leave to my home. I have visited at night times also and when we go inside water our body get rejoiced and it is not cool.

Serene Stay at Courtallam

This is a wonderful destination in South Tamil Nadu. This place was quiet popular with the people of Tamil Nadu but I had not thought that this would be such a nice place until finally I visited it . . The overall stay at this place is amazing. The climate is very unstable. It would be so unpredictable as to when it would rain or when it would stay sunny or cloudy. The weather kept changing throughout the day. However, this destination is quiet windy because of the wind currents from the Podhigai Mountain Range - the Western Ghats. The nights were quiet cool. The shower-time at the waterfalls are quiet enjoyable especially when there was no crowd around. Minimal waters at the falls are ideal for enjoyment however, with the increase in inflow of the waters it is advisable to take precautions to protect children and properties not to be washed away in the violent watersplashes.
