The predominant theme of Thommankuthu in Idukki district is its beautiful cascades and gigantic rocks. The dense woods give the scenic treasures of this place the best cover they could. You have to find them out one by one – Thommankuthu and Ezhunilakuthu.
Thommankutthu waterfalls and the forests beyond the seven-step thundering cascade are for both the ardent nature lover and the adventure-seeker, a perfect place to explore.
Thommankuthu has two equally enchanting waterfalls Thommankuthu and Ezhunilakuthu. This less explored destination in the middle of a pristine forest is famous for the waterfalls and the meandering rivers gracefully winding across the wood are a sight to behold. On the way to visit the falls, you can also see a tree house.
The boom of the waterfalls hits you from miles afar especially during the monsoon season when all streams and rivulets inside the woods gush on with their full might to leap over a series of rocks to finally reach where you stand amazed at Thommankuthu.
