Courtralam - The most famous water falls in Tamilnadu.As the water is flowing through the mountains and over many a herbs in the forests,the water is considered to have medical values.The best part of the falls is the force with which it falls on us.We will feel as if we are being hit by a continuos flow of rock rather than water.There is a total of 6 falls in that area namely Shenbagadevi Aruvi,Main Aravi,Old Coutralam Aruvi,Puli aruvi,Five Aruvi and Then Aruvi.The season starts from End June and goes till mid September and heavily depends on the Kerala Monsoon
The travel to OOTY should NOT BE DONE through the road rather should be done ONLY THROUGH THIS TRAIN which runs from Mettupalayam.The travel takes close to 4 hrs but it is worth spending the time.The innumerable falls,the forest,the animals can be enjoyed throughout the journey and the most enjoyable is the train in which we travel wherein we can just get down from the train and can walk along with it,but beware of the guards..
