So many places in Kerala in India are famous beyond the international borders. But there are so many which are still remaining hidden even from the locals around. Here I'm introducing you one such tourist spot.. Paloor kotta waterfalls.
Kotta means fort. But you can't find any artificial wall here. All what you can see is a mountain from which water coming down in 2 tiers. History says, Tipu Sultan, a famous chapter in the history of South India, had stayed here during war time.
Generally the quantity of water is bit less as compared to many other falls. So comparatively risk also is reduced. It's absolutely safe to wet yourself in the bottom falls. To reach the top, you have to climb the mountain which makes this trip more interesting and challenging. On the top one, we have to be more cautious not to slip and fall and get trapped in the downstream. A good view also welcome you there, the same reason Tipu stayed here, as he can spot his enemies from far off distance itself.
The place is absolutely safe for families, although majority are young boys and men coming in a group. The place is ideal for having food also, keeping the famous golden rule in your mind, not to leave any visitor's impact.
Waterfalls are always more alive in monsoon season. So the ideal time is June to October, while the glamour reduces after that. The best way to each here is using GPS as this falls are located bit remote.
