Three and half hours journey from Madurai to Courtralam is beautiful.With hills and paddy field around, one will enjoy the scenic beauty. Once you reach Courtralam, there are many falls to enjoy. Most rejuvenating and enjoying ones are Courtralam main falls and Five falls.
It is called Natural Spa of South India by many. As per my experience, its true. Once can easily notice the cheerfulness in everyone around you. I felt amazingly light. For me its a chance to be one with nature and its pleasing.
Water has some medicinal effect, as said by many. Due to herb plants in forest, through which the river water come across and final come down as falls.
Best time to visit is rainy season. But i made my visit on 27 decmeber and water was there in average. Posting the picture as below.
