As the name suggests, land and water have struck an extraordinary kinship at Thusharagiri (mist capped peaks). The plantation destination that abounds in rubber, arecanut, pepper, ginger and spices, is also a trekkers delight. Trekkers start early morning from the second waterfall on the hills and climb up through the pristine dense evergreen forests teeming with exotic birds and animals to reach Vythiri in Wayanad district by evening.
Thusharagiri is one of the well known waterfalls in Kerala.
There are a five falls in Thusharagiri. The lower three falls are open to visitors. The top two falls are generally considered beyond reach. They too are reachable, if you are ready to trek 5 kms through the jungle and tackle quite a few, hard to climb, high rocks.
Forests and plantations make up the green vista of Thusharagiri. Rubber, areca nut and various spices and herbs grow in abundance.
Thusharagiri is on the outskirts of Wayanad hill station. Not a lot of people of know that Thusharagiri is a hill station.
