While driving towards Banasur sagar dam, I saw a board
towards “Meenmutty waterfalls”. It seemed interesting and we drove towards the
waterfall. At the end of the road was a small forest department check post
where we had to take tickets to visit the falls.
When asked for directions, the guard provided us with two
options. First was the easier path that provides the front view of the
waterfalls. The second option was a steep uphill stretch taking us to the base
of the falls. We decided to try both ways. The first route was an easy walk as
guard mentioned and within 10 minutes we could see the waterfall at a distance.
A nice view!!
Then we took the uphill path to reach the base of the falls.
A big rock blocked the view of the falls but we could get very near to its
base. An amazing experience.
We could also get a nice view of Banasur Sagar dam. Also got
some leads about trekking options nearby!! Agenda for a future trip was already
put in the backlog!!
Note: Do not confuse this falls with another Meenmutty falls
