Kerala Kundu Waterfalls

A top view of Kerala Kundu Waterfalls

Kerala Kundu Waterfalls may not be a familiar place for many people. The site is located in the middle of Silent Valley territory in a small village called Karuvarakkundu in Malappuram District of Kerala. It is hardly 6 km away from the locale and concluded with a drive of below 10 minutes. It is also known as Kalkundu Waterfall and Karuvarakkundu Waterfalls.

A force of Nature: Kerala Kundu Waterfalls

According to the scientific facts, this is the oldest Waterfalls formed which is still vibrant and not faded away. As the waterfall situated in the middle of Silent Valley, it is bestowed with a pleasant and composed ambiance. The water will never end up flowing here. Even in Summer, there will be a large estimate of the audience to enjoy having a chit chat with friends. But most of the visitors will be from the neighborhood and, in general, youngsters are more attracted to the spot.

A large pond formed on Kerala Kundu

As the name specifies, there is a crowd-pleasing large pond formed out in the center. The water keeps flowing down through the rocks, as a result, the pond purifies naturally. Many people dive into the water from the top to get refreshed. The experiment of making dives from various spots resulted in danger many times. So be careful while walking on the slippery rocks as it is difficult to hold firmly and hard to pin on. 

As it is a scenic location people do take photos with nature. The Kerala Kundu forest has a wide variety of fauna and flora species. Mammals, birds, fishes, butterflies and many other animals find their residence here. But no need to get worried as these are miles away from the Kerala Kundu Waterfalls site. 

Spending few hours in the water will give you a relaxing breath and obviously prompt you to have a heavy meal. I suggest you carry enough food and water along with you while packing up as there are no proper food stations or shops.

Best time to visit the spot

It is always preferable to visit during monsoon seasons but try to avoid heavy raining days as Kerala Kundu Waterfalls stream flow will be very high. In Kerala, the monsoon season happens in two main periods. The first one starts at the end of May or beginning of July and last till September. The second one starts in the month of October and last till November. So during these periods the waterfall will be a heaven destiny for all nature lovers and adventure freaks.

A hope for development

The rumors already spreading that Kerala Government is going to invest a huge amount for the renovation of the spot. If it happens Kerala Kundu waterfalls will be one of the hottest spots in Malabar with a phenomenal tourist attraction. Rumors says that the main focus will be to develop a proper way to reach the last accent of the site. Safety will be another question that might be answered with solidarity. Proper security guards may come into the action in order to restrict the adventure lovers climbing high rocks. Yes, It will definitely avoid so many accidents. 

How to reach the spot?

Nearest airport

 You can fly to Calicut International Airport which is almost 35 km away from the spot.

Nearest Railway station

The place can be accessible easily by train if you are traveling from a huge distance. Melattur is the nearest railway station with a distance of 10 km from the spot. 

Road :

The place lies remotely 10-20 minutes walk away from Perinthalmanna - Nilambur highway. The current way is little difficult to access though it will probably change once the spot renovates in upcoming years.
