Banasuramala Meenmutty Waterfalls in Wayanad

The Name Meenmutty seems to be a common name for many waterfalls in Kerala’s western ghats. There are two Meenmutty Waterfalls near Wayanad. The famous Meenmutty falls near Kalpetta, a three-tiered waterfall and the second largest in Kerala, has been closed for safety reasons.

We are not planned for the falls until we reach the picturesque Banasura Sagar dam. As we reach the parking area of Banasura Sagar dam, a small board says Meenmutty falls – 2.5 kms’.  Then we enquired this falls and come to know that this is a second ‘Meenmutty falls’ in Wayanad.

After a 2-km drive and less than a kilometre hike, we can able to see the falls.
It is adventurous to visit meen mutty falls and we have to trek the hill alongside the falls for 150 yards and the total distance is approximately 1.5 kms. The rocks are little slippery in some places but there is a safety rope across the path to support. Plan to visit during monsoon time, to see the full flow of Meenmutty Waterfalls.

Wayanad has a pristine beauty and blessed with many waterfalls.  You won't fail to notice that there is not a speck of waste thrown anywhere on the way.  No plastic, no wrappers, no bottles, nothing but nature and its enticing beauty.  The people of the place have opened up their lands for parking areas.
