Palaruvi, Kerala

The water that gushes down a 300 feet high stone to form the waterfall that would make the viewer think that weather he is watching really water or milk.

The water lavishly bubbles down with a white dash and a hiss caused by a natural stir up that gives the fall a milky color, thus due to that water fall the place got name as Palaruvi.

It is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Kerala. It is a favorite spot for tourist as well as local. The journey to the Palaruvi through the dense tropical forest is a mesmerizing experience.

The surrounding blue hills and green valleys form a stunning backdrop to the milk white rupture of bubbles that resounds through the otherwise serene virgin forest. Any one who visit here one time will never going to forget the cool shower.
