Courtallam or Kuttalam, Spa of South India, is a panchayat town situated at a mean elevation of 160 m (520 ft) on the Western Ghats in Tirunelveli District of Tamil Nadu, India. Many seasonal and few perennial rivers such as the Chittar River, the Manimuthar River, the Pachaiyar River and the Thamirabarani River originate in this region. The numerous waterfalls and cascades along with the ubiquitous health resorts in the area have earned it the title the Spa of South India.The falls carry a good amount of water only when there is a rain on the hills. The season begins from June of every year till September. The South West Monsoon brings in the cold breeze with mild temperature. From October to December North East Monsoon sets over in Tamil Nadu and the climate is cold and the rains are very heavy sometimes. Sometimes the falls get flooded and people are not allowed to take bath during floods.
This place is just magical 😍 My idea of paradise. .
Walking up to my treehouse where I am lucky enough to be spending the night. I’ve only been here for about an hour but I already love the Khao Sok National Park area ❤️
Floating through Maya Bay ❤️ This was an amazing day. Headed out to sea on a boat to swim and snorkel through Maya Bay, then swim again at night and see the amazing bioluminescent plankton light up at my finger tips - a breathtaking sight. Then sleeping on the roof of the boat under the stars.
Maya Bay, and Maya Beach were made famous by one of my all time favorite movies - ‘the beach’. Maya Beach is currently closed due to the ecological damage caused to it due to the large numbers of tourists that were flocking there.
