Meenmutty Waterfalls

The waterfalls are at 29 km distance form Kalpetta. Meenmutty fall, the biggest and magnificent falls in Wayanad is situated at two-kilometre hike through the forest from the Ooty road, in whcih the vehicle would pass only up to one km distance. The rest of the path is needed to be covered by trekking and the path to reach the falls is perilous and tiring. But once you reach the falls you will have great deal of enjoyment in store. 

In Vaduvanchal-Ooty road it is at 4 km distance. It is largest and most spectacular waterfalls in Wayanad, that cascades from a height of about 300m in three stages. It is the second largest waterfall in Kerala, located in the lush deciduous forest. The Meenmutty, Soochipara, and Kanthanpara waterfalls combined, feed the Chaliyar River. In Malayalam, the mother tongue of Keralites, Meenmutty means, 'Where fish are blocked'. Since there is upward falls where fishes can't swim further this name is given to the falls.
