The resort is available in 2 location, one in the main road and the other is this one.

Note: As I stated, this is in the remote location and If you are traveling with your family, I won’t recommend this place, instead request them which is available nearby the Main road which was so good as I personally feel, this place looks so idle and women won’t feel comfortable .

Courtallam – Thamirabharani – P9

After Main falls, why should we miss five falls as the climate is supporting and its the right time to enjoy:), so we went directly to Five falls after taking a bath in Main falls . The main reason is all the waterfalls were apt for taking bath and we felt that we are lucky enough to enjoy. With no time, we came to Five falls and it was more & more beautiful. In five falls, 3 falls for women and 2 for men.

Courtallam – Thamirabharani – P8

Our next day started with enthusiasm and slowly we discussed on why not we go to Main falls for bath ,as we came all the way here and what is the need to start so early to Chennai. With no time, All agreed and we started to Main Falls of  Courtallam.  

I really don’t know how to express the Beauty & Gigantism of Main Falls..  It was such a beauty. Climate supported that day with a little bit of drizzle which was more pleasant than the previous day . 

Various Views of Main Courtallam Falls –

Courtallam – Thamirabharani – P7

The choice to visit Courtallam was also unexpected, as previous night was heavily raining in the surroundings of Thirunelveli. We got it may be the ideal time to appreciate the waterfalls and it turned out be so evident , as we spent good time in the waterfalls , though crowd was moderate in Courtallam . After Old Courtallam, we wrapped up our lunch and went to Tenkasi & decided to vacate the room to spend in a resort in Courtallam that night.
We had our evening time free and wanted to visit nearby Temple. We thought we can go to Achankovil , it is 32KM from Tenkasi, One of most wonderful scenic dense forest route . The Temple was inside a dense forest and checkpost will be closed after 6.00PM as they will not allow vehicles due to forest restrictions. So chose to begin early , so we can reach at-least by 5PM and return as quickly as time permits.
Achankovil –
P.S. Details Referenced from Wiki –
Lord Ayyappa / Aiyanar presides there in the form of grihastha (householder) and the idol faces east. It is believed to installed by Lord Parasurama himself. The Pratishta of Lord Ayyappa here is quite unique from that of other Sastha shrines in Kerala. The idol is known as Rudraksha sila. He is depicted as a grihasthashrami (one who leads a married life) along with his two consorts Poorna and Pushkala. The temple is famed for curing poisonous Snakebites and thus Ayyappa is often portraited as a Mahavaidya (great physician). The right palm of the idol always keeps Chandanam (Sandalwood) and Theertham (sacred water) which is thought to have medicinal properties.
Map to reach Achankovil From Tenkasi –
Achankovil
Distance from Other Places –
P.S – Information referenced from wiki

  • Thiruvananthapuram:(124 km) via Nedumangad – Kulathupuzha – Thenmala – Chenkottai
  • Kollam:(85 km) via Kottarakkara – Punalur
  • Pathanapuram:(45 km) via Konni – Achankovil road
  • Kulathupuzha:(63 km) via Thenmala – Aryankavu, Shenkottai
  • Konni:(41 km) via Kalleli – Kadiyar – Uliyanad – Mannarappara – Thura
  • Punalur:(43 km) via Kumaramkudy-Mullumala route, but the route is not in a good condition.

Railway: The nearest railway stations are at Thenmala, Kottarakkara and Punalur.
Airports: Thiruvananthapuram international airport is about 140 km and Cochin international airport about 180 km.
The route to Achankovil will be very narrow and through the hill, its not so easy to stop the vehicle in the middle. The first picture was taken on the way to the temple.

During our Visit , Sabarmalai Pilgrims decorating the steps for pooja . We reached the temple around 5 PM and wanted to return as soon as possible because of the forest route.

We returned to Tenkasi around 7.30 PM that day . We wrapped up our dinner and vacated the room in Tenkasi & went to Courtallam for the resort stay as I liked the hill backdrop and the atmosphere was peaceful , Surprisingly they allocated a resort in a remote place which was ideal for bachelor’s not for family . I checked with the resort owner and came to know that the resort near-by main road was not available that time. Any way, it was comfortable for family of 4 . We decided to visit the remaining couple of falls and wanted to start early to chennai next day … But it doesn’t happen’d after visiting Main and Five falls … lol 🙂

Courtallam – Thamirabharani – P3

Time – 4 AM – Thirunelveli – 

After the room hunt disaster in Tirunelveli, we understood it could have been a sign from the nature to return 🙂 , yet we realized after reaching the City. We requested the driver to take rest and began searching for the alternatives around Tirunelveli. Around 24 places, Mahapushkaram occasion was organized and my father recommended to go a closest spot. Ambasamuthiram is one of the place , It is one of the wonderful Scenic spot in South Tamilnadu . We doubt we may not get stay in Ambasamuthiram and chose to go to Tenkasi for stay. From Tirunelveli to Tenkasi , the distance is close to 50 KM . From Tenkasi, Ambasamuthiram was around 35 KM.

We are uncertain about whether we would get the stay in Tenkasi, how ever the hotel receptionist was certain that stay can be profited in Tenkasi. This time, we truly needed to get things straight, as a day went in fiasco subsequent to voyaging more than 500KM  and would prefer not to squander another 100 KM. Rain stopped around 4.30 AM. We finally decided to take a call to reach Tenkasi. Driver agreed  and we reached Tenkasi around 5.30 AM. 

Time – 5.30 AM – Tenkasi – 

Surprisingly after reaching Tenkasi, the events started changing. We got the stay in the Tenkasi Town itself and our ultimate goal that time is to take rest first and after 10.30 AM, we would wanted to draft a plan for Ambasamuthiram. We took rest and wake up around 9.30 AM and started looking for options for Breakfast. Hotel Anandha Bhavan in Tenkasi , It was a good choice for breakfast as the quality of food/taste was OK and price was decent.

Time – 10.30 AM – Ambasamuthiram –  

Started around 10.30 AM for Ambasamuthiram and reached the town. Town overflowed with People for the Pushkaram occasion , that was really well-arranged in this small town. We saw few places and chose to go couple of more miles for a decent spot for Holy Plunge …..

Let me start sharing the Pictures !!
