Kattippara: The waterfalls in Amarad hill in Kattippara is one among the appealing monsoon tourist spots in Kozhikode, which remain unknown for many travel lovers here. Amarad waterfalls flow downstream as two bylanes and later divide by giving birth to two waterfalls, which are Menonthode falls and Chathankuzhi falls. The refreshing water joins with the Punoor river later.

Though a promising travel destination, inadequate travel facilities to the waterfall is a challenge for utilising the tourism potential of the region.


Amarad road from Kattippara town with several hikes and turns will take travellers to the waterfall. After travelling one and half kilometre, take a narrow concrete road adjacent to the left side of Madinul Uloom madrasa in Amarad. The travellers will reach Neelithode waterfall by proceeding 300 metres through this path. From there, the visitors get a glimpse of a two-folded waterfall.

Almost 2 kilometres of journey across a bridge and crossing a small stream is left to reach Amarad falls from here.

Tourism potential

When Mathayi Chacko was the MLA, this region was considered to be included in the tourism corridor. Though Kattippara panchayat submitted a request to the tourism department for utilising the tourism potential of Amarad and Vattachuzhali regions, no decision was made.
