Popularly called the spa of South India, the Courtallam Falls cascade down a height of 160 m, in breathtaking glory. Nestled amidst picturesque hills and emerald greenery, the falls are a combination of various small streams and appear gigantic. Don't miss the interesting rocks behind the falls that have been eroded by the fast-flowing water to form honey-comb like structures. The splendid falls have been the backdrop for movies like Roja as well. Many believe that the water of the falls has curative properties and thus people flock in numbers to this natural wonder. Tourists can also see a number of Lord Shiva shrines that have been carved into the rocks by locals. After enjoying at the natural retreat, you can also indulge in some snacks sold at the various stalls stationed close by.
