Courtallam is the most famous tourist spot in the district. The place is associated with the legend and stories of Lord Shiva. The natural waterfalls, pleasant weather and intermittent drizzling of raindrops are the breathtaking features of this place. A cold breeze adds unusual and ecstatic charm to this scenic cascade. The water of its cascade is believed to possess medicinal properties as it passes through the herb forest before its fall. People visit here for both leisure and picnic purposes.
