Located on the foothills of Pushpagiri, Malalli Falls is 25 kilometers away from Somwarpet. The source of the waterfall is Kumaradhara river which falls from a height of 200 feet. Since the waterfall is located at an edge of a hiking trail, it presents the gorgeous views of the Kodagu Valley and mesmerizing Western Ghats.
Where to go?I am still exploring Kodagu(Coorg) but if you are looking for a quick weekend getaway that is a little off the tourist circuit, then Mallalli Falls is the place to be.Some background - Mallalli falls is located very close to Pushpagiri hill or Kumara Parvatha, which is the 2nd highest peak in Karnataka. Kumaradhara is the river that crashes down those granite steps and winds it way to Kukke Subramanya. My guess is that most of the forest cover around the falls is part of the Bisle forests and on clear days, you could probably see the slopes of bisle from the falls viewpoint (again - this is my guess as I haven't found any evidence for the same).
At the foothills of Pushpagiri, around 25 km from Somwarpet, Kumaradhara river falls from over 200 feet to form the Mallallai falls. It is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Karnataka and the view from here is spectacular with lush green mountains around and steep valleys.The waterfalls are located at a distance of about 256 km from Bangalore.
