breaking news Visit the massive Kutralam Waterfall, a hidden gem in Tamil Nadu

There are 5 places you must visit on your next trip to Kurtalam and the best season to visit this magical waterfall is from mid-June to July and between October and January. Tourists are not allowed during the peak monsoon season.

One of the massive waterfalls in the Indian subcontinent, Kutralam is located in the Tenkasi district of Tamil Nadu and is a popular tourist attraction. Many of us enjoy the sound of gushing waterfalls, being near a gigantic creature of nature, and feeling the touch of cool, cold water in our souls. If you like a short hike followed by a refreshing waterfall experience, you must visit Kutralam. In this article, you are going to guide you through Kutralam and 5 places to visit on your next trip to Tenkasi.

The main falls

You can take the train to Tenkasi or Tirunelveli, take a local bus and reach Kutralam. From the bus stop, it’s a fairly short and easy hike to the waterfalls, surrounded by rocks, tall trees, bushes, and lush greenery on both sides. The place is known for its tribes of monkeys, so you can see large groups of them sitting on the rocks and waving to passers-by. You are allowed to feed them, but at your own risk. From a distance you can hear the sound of water beating the rocks and it brings you a natural feeling of relief.

The best season to visit is from mid-June to July and between October and January. Tourists are not allowed during the peak monsoon season because the flow would be strong, posing a huge risk to anyone even approaching it. Water from the falls flows from a height of 550 meters, passing through herbs and medicinal plants on its way, thus enriching itself with nutrients as it descends. The waterfalls are a feast for the soul. There are separate changing rooms for men, women and children. Just as you descend after a refreshing bath, you can feast on spicy and hot authentic Tamil dishes as you enter the city.

five falls

The water travels a long way through the hills and waterfalls in several places, of which Five Falls (Aintharuvi) is one of them. The water running down from the hills is obstructed by huge trees, thus diverting the flow of water into five separate streams, hence its name. It is a delightful sight to see five huge and beautiful waterfalls rushing towards us. There are separate areas for men and women to bathe separately. Usually the place is too crowded, so you will have to choose the best time to enjoy its glory for a long time.

Thirumalai Temple

Surrounded by the Western Ghats, the temple stands on top of a small hill at Panpoli, Sengottai, in Tenkasi district. The temple is surrounded by striking greenery all around. An ancient temple built for Lord Muruga, the god of Tamilnadu, the architecture of the temple is simple yet profound. The temple offers stunning views of the western ghats. You can drive up the hill or walk, whichever suits you. Once you reach the temple, it is only right that you spend some quality time inside and outside, to enjoy the beauty of the place. There are plenty of stalls near the temple where you can view and taste local refreshments, sweets, and other regional delicacies.

Briyani border

Speaking of food, you can’t afford to miss the Border Rahmath Parotta Stall while you’re in Tenkasi. The name comes from the fact that the restaurant is near the border of Tamilnadu and Kerala. It’s no exaggeration to say that this is one of the best places to have a briyani. After a cool dip in the waterfalls, head straight to this centuries-old and renowned restaurant to eat your way. The restaurant is famous for the long queue and the incredibly fast service to customers. At peak times, there will be at least twenty people queuing to feast on site. The wait is worth it, because the taste is simply incomparable. If you like spicy non-veg food, you have to try this place. Home to the amazing parotta, spicy chicken curry and lip-smacking briyani, this is a must visit when visiting Kutralam.
