Some travellers wish to explore new places and some to go back to the road they had travelled already. Dhoni is a pristine piece of nature, where hills always call you back. Dhoni is a heavenly charm with misty mountains and the reserve forest is just about 12 km from Palakkad town. An ideal place to watch nature at close quarters, tourists is attracted to Dhoni waterfalls situated here. The forest area is rich in wildlife like elephant, tiger, deer, etc.
Off to the waterfalls
Dhoni also offer ideal place for trekking and one can walk down to Malampuzha and Meenvallam waterfalls from Dhoni through its thick forests. But this requires prior permission from District Forest Officer. The trekking team will be lead by a well experienced guide.
A three-hour trek from the base of the Dhoni hills will take you to the pristine beauty of nature and the lush green surroundings will rejuvenate your senses. The trekking starts at the foot of the hills near the Teak plantations. A narrow mountain way is there for four-wheel drives and bikes that lead up to the waterfall; however private vehicles are prohibited from traversing these roads. This 4 km long trekking trail through the lush green environs bestows one with a quiet isolated space to witness nature in its most tranquil form. This guided trek is best to start trekking early mornings, so more time can be spent in the company of the gorgeous waterfall.
The waterfalls are full during monsoon and it overflows with beautiful small streams gushing down, so the best time to visit is during monsoon (June – October). Bathing in the waterfall is not allowed, though there are places down the stream for bathing. The return journey is comparatively easy lasting usually around 2 hours.
