After a 2 km drive in Maniyakkumpara route from Manathoor junction in Pala – Thodupuzha route, past picturesque pineapple and rubber plantations, you can ascend the rocks and reach the site of the ever-gorgeous Pampanal Waterfalls, that leave a series of small whirlpools among the boulders amid vivid vistas.
For those seeking a peaceful day out with friends and family, Pampanal is the best place to visit. Located in Kottayam district, Kerala, India, this virgin spot beckons you with its evergreen surroundings and beautiful setting. Nestled in the arms of pristine greenery, Pampanal greets you with a breathtaking sight of impressive cascades of fresh water that crash towards the ground, creating many an ice-cold pool.
From a very great distance itself, you will be welcomed by the thunderous sound of water gushing through the huge rocks. It flowing majestically over the rocky bed, falls down in a series of steps, big and small. The road to the falls has a surprise in store for you. Sometimes it is an adventurous mud path and at times, it allows you fascinating sights of flora or fauna.
Never leave Pampanal without taking a shower under its scenic fall or a dip in the cool clear natural pool. The best time to visit this waterfall is the rainy season. During this time of the year, you can see Pampanal in its full grandeur. This dazzling visual beauty allures travellers, its charm underscored by the music of flowing streams.
Pampanal is much more than an incredible waterfall. It gives you a glimpse of the distinct beauty of fascinating village life too in God’s Own Country.
