Located around 45 km from the city of Thiruvananthapuram, the capital of Kerala, India, Meenmutty Falls gives a glimpse of natural beauty surrounded by the mountain ranges of Western Ghats. Located near Kallar, on the way to Ponmudi from Thiruvananthapuram, the waterfalls along with its serene surroundings offers a unique and invigorating experience. A trek of two kms from Kallar, through dense forests, would take one to Meenmutti waterfalls and a further two kms, to the Kombaikani waterfalls.Kallar, famous for round-shaped boulders and pebble, is situated en route to the popular hill station of Ponmudi.
During rains, the waterfall pools are too dangerous to access. No need to miss out the much anticipated water pool experience since there is a bathing spot (bathing Ghat) at the start of the trek trail. On the way to the waterfalls, one could come across ample bird life, and many species of butterflies.
