Kuthumkal waterfalls – where few people visit

27 June 2015

The information about this waterfall was limited. Unlike other falls we visited in Munnar, this was away from the main highways and tourist circuit. So when we started from Adimali, the only help was from the map that we were using. We first headed towards Rajakkad, a small town in Idukki district. The road was rough at times and since it rained heavily that day, waterlogging was seen at many places. A tree had fallen on the way for which we had to wait for a while for the road to be cleared.

With the help of locals, we reached near the falls. The last few km was a series of hairpin bends on a narrow road. And then waterfalls appeared suddenly. Unlike other falls, we had to walk a bit to reach the base of the falls. Though this falls was unique in its own way, it resembled Sathoddi falls in Karnataka. We could not reach the base of the falls due to huge and slippery rocks.
