Hence October to February is the best time to visit with nice weather and almost no rain. Anakulam offers a video range of activities like fishing, trekking, jeep safari, river crossing etc where tours and activities can be booked online.
Perumbakuth Waterfalls stands at a majestic height of nearly * feet.
Set in the thick forest around the town, the area is known for its slow pace and charm and is a great place to stroll around to get a glimpse of how the locals live.
The walk to the waterfall’s base is relatively easy and it is a superb place to have a family picnic, a quiet day reading a book, or just gazing at the falls by yourself if that’s more your speed.
The falls are remote, surrounded by gorgeous rainforest. A hike of about 1 ½ kilometers will take you to the top which is breathtaking.
The trails to the falls aren’t particularly family-friendly, as there are steep areas not suitable for young children. However, the base of the waterfall is scenic and leads to a beautiful stream which can be enjoyed by all age groups
