Kanthanpara Waterfalls is in Wayanad District, this beautiful waterfall is situated about 22 kilometers away from Kalpetta. Smaller than the Sentinel Rock waterfalls, the Kanthanpara Falls and its surroundings make an ideal picnic spot in Wayanad.
Kanthanpara waterfall is a unique picnic spot with beautiful tea gardens on both sides. The mosaic of emerald green tea gardens sloping away into the horizon is a soothing and refreshing sight for city-weary eyes.
There are two waterfalls here, Water cascades down from a height of 30 meters in two steps. The upper fall is a tiny cascade. The plus side is that it creates a pool that is safe to access during summer. During that period of predictable and stable water flow, even children can enjoy splashing in the pool. The lower cascade is bigger and prettier. Here water falls down a rugged rock.
The narrow road to this cascade is through tea gardens and coffee plantations. Among other crops that enrich the fertile slopes, it is easy to notice banana plants and betel trees. The hills beyond the waterfall stream are covered by dense forest. So fresh cool air is always there.
Best time to visit to visit Kanthanpara waterfalls is from October to May.
