Sentinel Rock Waterfalls in Wayanad

The dense forest around you is increasingly vibrating, the birds flutter in anticipation and the steep, shaky path around you is slowly elevating you to a vantage point where they say you're going to encounter a sight only a few have truly witnessed. Your journey ends and a white stream is seen falling headfirst into sharp granite rocks that welcome it as old friends. This is Sentinel Rock or Soochipara Waterfalls, on an off-route from Wayanad near Kalpetta, a place where both the trek and visuals are surreal. People drive across tense terrains and walk a naturally rocky pathway to reach the summit. But they never complain about the end result. The next time you're near Wayanad, do remember to check out this natural masterpiece on the Kozhikode - Vythiri - Gudallur Highway.
