At Adyanpara, the speeding stream finds way through the ups, downs and contours of a black rocky terrain forcing multiple cascades that plummet around 300 feet. It is located in the outskirts of Nilambur town.
The name of the waterfall village –Kurumbalangode -may not sound pleasing. The place is nevertheless very pleasing. Further from Nilambur, paddy fields, teak plantations, bamboo woods and evergreen forest take over the rich red soil of the uneven land.
Exotic and migratory birds belonging to this bird haven flock everywhere from tree tops to grassy grounds. By resting on the rocks and flying over the stream they also become part of the waterfall experience.
Forest of this region has its fair share of wild life. The waterfall area away from their habitat is generally considered safe.
After coming into life at the nearby mountain peak, the stream meanders through the rain forest to the rocky basin.
The perennial flow creates cascades all along the way; however most of them are too tiny to be taken seriously.
Cascades created as it reaches Adyanpara fuse fury to beauty at a notable level.
The swift stream that flow away past the cascades, in due course, gets morphed to the bigger and slower River Chaliyar.
Similar to some other Kerala waterfalls such as Palaruvi, water of this falls is regarded as medicinal. Water gets too intimate with all kinds of herbs and shrubs from the jungle before reaching the falls. Unlike Palaruvi falls, people do not flock here to have medicinal bath.
Still a local tourist spot, visitors, mostly locals, reach here to have a picnic in a picture perfect spot. Some youngsters with a streak of adventure even slide down along the water flow!
The waterfall is located among hills at a higher altitude. So a bit of trekking is a necessary prelude. Hill climb is followed by walk through paths of slippery rocks.
Adyanpara (also Adyanapara and Adyanappara) is a good place to be in, if visiting Nilambur is in your agenda.
