Kodanchery: A huge flow of visitors is recorded at Thusharagiri waterfalls as the region has received adequate summer rainfall. The exuberant falls emerging from lush woods are located in the Chalipuzha, a tributary of Iruvanjippuzha, and the spot is nearly 50 kilometres from Kozhikode city.
The enchanting Mazhavil Chattom waterfall and Thumbithullum Para are lying nearly one kilometre downstream of the Erattumukku falls. Guides of the forest department will accompany the visitors throughout the treks to these quaint waterfalls.
In Monsoons, Thusharagiri turns violent and dangerous. Visitors are not allowed for trekking during this period. However, the falls will soon be opened to tourists in the months after monsoon season, rendering an exalted experience to the visitors.
Both short distance and long distance trekking are offered to the travellers at Thusharagiri eco tourist centre. Two kilometre long Thonikkayam trekking, and 7 kilometre long Thenpara trekking have been recently commenced from Thusharagiri. The trekking slots can be booked via website www.thusharagiriecotourism.com
