Karithode Waterfalls-Three layer- Munnar Thekkady route-unexplored hill station

Karithode Waterfalls- an untouched beauty in the Munnar- Thekkady route. This waterfalls is situated in the Udumbanchola gramapanchayat in Idukki district.

This waterfalls has no high steeps, but what makes it charming is, it has three layers which are stretched over an area of more than 350 feet. The top of the falls can be reached easily.

Karithode waterfalls is not in an easily accessible place; because the routs are not well tarred now. Considering the potential of this unexplored tourist place officials tarred a 10 km road from Nedumkandam on the Munnar-Thekkady route. After that it is not in a drivable condition. But the 3 kms road after that will offers a great trekking experience with a lot to see on the two sides of the road.

This is not an well developed area with all facilities, but many chooses this place regularly for spending the holidays with cool breeze environment.

The stream, with the exciting three layers, will get its full strength during the monsoon, and it will remain more than seven months. According to the local people, even in the summer time this will give eye catching experience, and many people are coming here to enjoy cool bath in the water here.

Being this place is situated in the middle of Munnar-Thekkady route, it can be a sure stop for the visitors going through this route. The three layer waterfall will offer you a better stop for refreshment.

Earlier, there was a proposal to make it a mini hydropower unit. Though 12 acres of land covering the water fall had been acquired for the project and fenced in 2006, no follow-up action was taken. Once it is developed as a hydropower station, it will become inaccessible to visitors and so, the local people want to keep its natural beauty intact.
