Water falls » Perumthenaruvi
The sylvan surroundings in the interior of Vechuchira in Pathanamthitta
Dist in Kerala India exude a mystic charm. The majestic fall of
Perumthenaruvi with is crystal clear waters form a stream and meanders
through the forest.A synthesis of enchanting beauty and scenic splendour,it
is a breathtaking site.
There are three routes to reach Perumthenaruvi two via Pthanamthitta-Ranni
and one via Kottyama -Erumely. You can reach Vechoochira,where ther
is a Navodaya School,which is 12 kilometers away from Ranni , by
bus .From the school a mere 5 minutes walk will take you to the
beauty spot of Pathanamthitta.
For those who really wish to get a feel of nature’s beauty,one
can take the less trodden Athykkayam-Kudamurutty –Chenna route
fromRanni.The 20 minutes treak through the teak plantations from
Chenna to Perumthenaruvi is an exhilarating experience.
The rugged terrain ,dotted with huge boulders has metamorphosed
over the ages into a piece of extraordinary sculpture shaped by
the sheer fury of the cascade. The locals have added a legendary
charm to this terrain, associating it with Lord Rama’s chariot
wheel and the visage of Hanuman.
Though the enchanted fall allures visitors to take dip,it is far
from safe. Slipping rocks ,especially during rains ,make it dangerous
for bathing. But for those who cannot resist a dip in the cool and
placid waters, the chill pools upstream is the ideal place.
Situated in Naranmoozhy Panchayat,Perumthenaruvi is a developing
tourist center under District Tourism Promotion Council
Another route is via Erumely,famous for the world famous Petta Thullal.It
is by the side of Mukkoottuthara-Plappally route to Sabarimala,
The two other water falls near Perumthenaruvi are 300 feet “Panamkudantha”and
the 200 feet “Padivathil” aruvees .They are in Sabarimala
