Meenmutti Waterfalls

Distance from Amban Heritage : 143.0 km

Meenmutty Falls is located 29 km from Kalpetta in Wayanad District in the state of Kerala, India. It is a three-tiered waterfall with a height of 300 metres. The Meenmutty word says it is where fish gets blocked. Meenmutty is a combination of malayalam words Meen (fish) and Mutty (blocked). Meenmutty Falls, the largest and most spectacular waterfall in the Wayanad District, is a 2 km hike though the jungle from the main Ooty Road.

It is Kerala's second largest waterfall and the one most unspoiled in its natural setting. Each of its three tiers requires a separate hike through a moist, deciduous forest. The path is quiet dangerous and tiresome, but the waterfalls are worth the hike. There are various Meenmutty falls in Wayanad. One of them is present in the property of a resort called Banasura Hill Resort. One has to take a deviation at Vellamunda village and go via Pulinjal to reach the Meenmutty falls present there.
