  1. Trips to waterfalls are always great choice for all nature lovers.
    Just wondering how tall are the Keralamkundu waterfalls?
    Hope it is safe to jump from the top!

    1. I am not sure of the height of the falls, its very very high. It is a little bit risky to jump from top as the rock above may gets slippery in rainy season. The office staff there will give advance warning, in such times.

  2. The water falls look amazing, and I think Kerala is a paradise of water falls. I have been to Kerala twice and seen some of the popular waterfalls, didn’t know about this one but I am sure it would be as mesmerising as the others

  3. Exploring waterfalls and river trekking are both the kind of adventure that are really close to my heart, probably because I really enjoy their innate state and beauty. Truly, Keralamkundu waterfalls in Malappuram district, Kerala state, India is something I should really have to see and experience. Indeed, it is very stunning and serene. The best place to commune with nature’s wonder. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

  4. Wow! I haven’t heard of this place though I’ve travelled quite a few times in this region to Palghat, Shoranur, Attakatti, Silent Valley etc. But then, Kerala is so blessed with the bounty of Mother Nature that there are so many places to see & explore!!!

  5. I had been to Calicut but missed this falls. Keralamkundu Falls look stunning and also located at great place near Silent Valley. I will visit it for sure during my next visit to Kerala.

  6. Such offbeat travel destinations make me wish I could visit more and more places. If I had time I would love to explore the waterfalls and trek around the greenery.
