Kovai Kutralam


Kovai Kutralam is one those very few grand waterfalls, that mesmerize everybody with their mighty looks and melodious music. Situated in Siruvani hills, the falls take birth from the lap of Siruvani river. Surrounded by lush green dense forest, variety of flora, fluttering multi-colored birds- this waterfall succeeds in attracting a good number of tourists. Being located in the heart of the forest, it is advised to avoid vising after 5.00 pm.

The distant view of the water smoke painting the sky, the sound of the water falling with great force, the trail entering into the jungle, makes one's heart leap with excitement.

When to go

Usually summers(March- June), with temperature touching 40 degrees, are not highly recommended to visit Coimbatore, but this waterfall, being located in a dense forest welcome the travelers with amazingly cool breeze, when rest of the state is drenching with sweat.
