9.2 – Great / Excellent
Recently visited the Palaruvi Waterfalls located at Aryankavu, Kollam district in Kerala. Palaruvi is one of the most highest Waterfall in India. Palaruvi literally means to “Stream of Milk” – “Paal” – means Milk, “Aruvi” means Falls, descends from a height of 300 feet through rocks. It is a one of the famous picnic spot for tourists from southern India, because of it’s spellbinding trekking experience through the thick tropical forest. Palaruvi was recently renovated and re-opened, now we have to use their official forest department buses to reach this place. Out side vehicles are not allowed inside. People visiting Courtallam waterfalls also visit the near-by Palaruvi waterfalls.
Palaruvi Waterfall is blessed with Ayurvedic properties and is healthy and safe for family and children to enjoy the cool shower. So a lot of tourists visit this place every year. It has a separate area for bathing, restricted for women and children. The journey to this nature’s paradise is through the dense tropical forests is heaven. Even Ayurvedic doctors often recommend to have bath in Palaruvi waterfalls for the medication of various health reasons. We can enjoy downstream swimming, an excellent place to have bath in crystal clear good water.
The Department of Kerala Forest has well managed the beautiful place clean and free of plastic. It’s great view from close proximity to the falls.
For safety purpose, don’t dip into the waters of the upper pool as the pool is so deep. So stay safe and enjoy splashing in the lower basin. Recently the upper pool bath way is closed for safety reasons, but we can witness the beauty of falls from there.
