Bangalore to Coutrallam, Papanasam Tour Package by Bus
India's third-largest city is Bangalore. For its pleasant weather, beautiful parks, and the many lakes here, Bangalore is loved. Shop in the many malls or street markets or hop into one of the many acclaimed breweries for a cold and refreshing drink in the beautiful Cubbon Park. In the city, there are a huge number of beautifully decorated parks that are ideal for a morning stroll or jogging. One walk through the 300-acre Cubbon Park or the Lalbagh Botanical Gardens, and you'll know why Bangalore is so popularly known as the 'Garden City' of India. Many things, including rising temperatures, polluted lakes, and heavily congested roads, have been reshaped by Bangalore, especially in the newer areas. The neighborhoods of Bangalore are mostly quiet and serene, apart from the central business and commercial districts (and the roads leading up to them), especially the older parts of the city, such as Jayanagar and J.P Nagar.
In breathtaking glory, the Courtallam Falls cascade down to a height of 160 m. The falls, nestled among picturesque hills and emerald greenery, is a mix of various tiny streams and look gigantic. The splendid falls have also been the backdrop for movies such as Roja. Many believe that the water of the falls has healing properties, and so individuals flock to this natural wonder in numbers. Tourists can also see a variety of Lord Shiva shrines that locals have carved into the rocks. You can also indulge in some snacks sold at the different stalls located nearby after enjoying the natural retreat.
Courtallam is a small town nestled in the Western Ghats foothills. It is a prominent tourist destination near Tirunelveli Town in South Tamil Nadu, which is blessed with many waterfalls. The best months to visit Courtallam are from July to September, as the flow of the waterfalls is moderate enough for tourists to bathe safely during this period. Correctly referred to as the South India Spa, it has many attractions.
Main Falls : As the name suggests, the most popular and frequented waterfall in Courtallam is Main Falls. The water flow is interrupted by a crater known as Pongumakadal, reducing its speed and impact. This decreased speed makes bathing safe here, although bathing is banned due to safety problems during heavy floods. There are separate sections for bathing for men and women. At a nominal rent, changing rooms are available. You should visit the waterfall if you want to avoid heavy crowds.
Small Pitfalls : Another waterfall in the main town is Small Falls. Situated right next to each other, it is a pair of small falls. The two falls were separated by two open rooms with high walls; one section is reserved for women and another for men, so it feels more like an indoor waterfall. After Main Falls, a long, sloping road leads to Small Falls. Due to its low height, Small Falls is a safe place to bathe for young children and the elderly.
Most Interesting places in Courtallam
Five Pitfalls : Five Falls is 4 km away from the main town, and after Main Falls, it is the second most crowded place. Witnessing five waterfalls in one place is rare. For women, two falls are reserved for bathing and three are assigned for men. There are change-room facilities available. The local treats are guava, blackberry, mangosteen and mangoes. Everywhere in Courtallam, monkeys are a big problem as they snatch food away in a jiffy from tourists.
Falls of the Tiger : For children and the elderly, this makes it safe. In ancient days, tigers used to frequent this river, drinking water from the river. Another attraction for children and adults where one can bathe or swim in the stream in front of the falls. Tiger Falls is special and well worth a visit.
Old Courtallam : Old Courtallam is located 7 km away from the main town. One takes a scenic road to these secluded falls. Compared to Main Falls or Five Falls, the flow is less, but unless the flow is down to trickles, bathing is still pleasant. In comparison with other falls, Old Courtallam is also less crowded. The Old Courtallam hill is barren and devoid of greenery, but this location has a rustic charm that makes it unique.
Devi Falls of Shenbaga : During the trek, Shenbaga Devi is the first waterfall to greet you. In sections of the stream, one may take a bath. The trek is strenuous, and enough water and food must be carried. Older people and individuals with health problems should not go beyond Shenbaga Devi Falls.
Sweetheart Falls : It takes a strenuous trek of about two hours to get to Honey Falls. It is advisable not to bathe in this waterfall, although in front of the waterfall, one can swim in the pool. With ample greenery and a gentle stream all along the way, the trek is a visual delight. One needs to navigate a few boulders blocking the way, so this trek guarantees good physical exercise. The trek is made more interesting by such challenges.
Papanasam, a small picnic spot in Tirunelveli, is a village close to the main city. The waters of this place are known for their mystical powers of redemption of wrongdoings, as the name suggests 'Papanasam' meaning putting an end to all the sins. 108 herbs that are not found anywhere else in the world live in the mountains around it. There are many things in its vicinity that allow you to spend a gala moment over here. For people who want to spend some time with their friends and family, the dense forest around the village makes it a perfect recreational spot. There are bewitching attractions in Papanasam, such as the Thamirabarani River, Agasthiyar Falls, Papanasam Dam, and the temple of Shiva. In addition, Papanasam's powerful waters have made it a famous destination for pilgrimages.

The water from the dam, surrounded by high mountains and dense forest, is used to irrigate the paddy fields of the districts of Tirunelveli and Tuticorin. It is almost 240 m tall, 5.4 m wide and 265 m long and has an area of 147 sq km in total.
Agasthiyar falls: Agastya Falls, also called Papanasam Falls, is located nearly 42 km from Tirunelveli.

Places to visit in Papanasam
Manimuthar Falls: The Manimathur Falls, located nearly 35 km from Tirunelveli, is a natural waterfall that flows throughout the year and is just above the Manimuthar Dam. According to many people who have visited the place, bike riding to the location is considered very exciting and adventurous. There is also a pond with a depth of 90 feet nearby. On the whole, this place is beautiful and picture-perfect.
Manjolai Hills: This picturesque hilly area is a panorama of emerald-green tea plantations, tucked above the Manimathur falls. For travelers with relaxation motifs, the tranquility and serenity of the place is appropriate. In addition, it is a paradise for the trekkers nearby.
Temple of Papanasanathar : The temple hosts six daily rituals and three yearly festivals, the most prominent of which are the Brahmotsavam and Thaipoosam. Some say that Papanasanathar is the result of the sheer devotion of the sage Agasthya to Lord Shiva.
The Fall of BanatheerthamI : A beautiful white wall of water flowing through the dense green forest known as Banatheertham Falls is concealed in the amazing beauty of the Western Ghats. Until the 1990s, the Banatheertham Falls, located just above the Karaiyar Dam in the Tamirabarani River in the state of Tamil Nadu, was largely unknown until the popular Hindi film Roja was shot here, which also led to the falls being named Roja Falls. The perennial waters of the falls ensure that their beauty can be witnessed throughout the year. The falls can be accessed by a boat ride to the Karaiyar Dam, which provides a great view of the waterfalls tucked between the green hills. One can hike for about ten minutes at the end of the boat ride to get even closer to the waterfalls and witness the unhindered power of the Banatheertham falls.
