Trekking at Thusharagiri in Wayanad

Trekkers across the world flock to the magnificent natural trails at Thusharagiri annually. Everything a true trekking aficionado swears by, including waterfalls, luscious greenery, endemic species, streams and natural log bridges, form the backbone of this beautiful masterpiece. From the charming little Adivaram village at the very foothill of the Western Ghats, one begins to get the first visuals of the waterfalls. You are led to the very base of the trail while swaying off the NH 212 (Kozhikode - Ooty Highway).

Up the trail, beyond a narrow steep path which leads to a ravine, one starts hearing the sound of the crashing water. People come across Mele Thenpara (literally means Upper Honey Rock) at the very top, where the surrounding floral beauty is truly unique. 100 m above the base we run into the first falls, Erattumukku. Natural rock formations and pools are can be seen here aplenty. Another 300 m up and you view Mazhavil Chattam (Rainbow Falls) and further, 900 m above the base lies the mystical Thonnikayal. The descent begins at nearby Avinjithode, after a journey one can never forget.
