Palaruvi Waterfalls

Palaruvi waterfall is one of the state’s most beautiful cascades hidden in the tropical forest of Kollam. Thousands every year make it a point to come for a trek through the woods and take a refreshing bath in this silver cascade. From a distance, you see for yourself why this beautiful cascade in the middle of the woods is given the name Palaruvi.  Get into the natural pool where the cascade falls. Feel the might of water plummeting from such height as it heals your body inch by inch like a skilled masseuse. 


The walk to the falls

Adventurists and nature enthusiasts would not stop at the falls. They will surely take this 3 km long walk up to the fall and is the most exciting part of the journey. This is the only ecotourism activity organized in Palaruvi. The lush green branches of tall trees would throw abundant shade on your path, which is littered with fallen leaves and dry twigs. Crossing rocky terrains can be arduous, but once the sight of the mighty waterfalls appears at a distance, all your fatigue from the long walk would evaporate. 

Minimum five persons are needed to start the trek. A guide will accompany you in the trip. Prior booking is needed.
