Settled in the picturesque Wayanad region of Kerala, Neelimala serves as a major tourist attraction for nature wanderers and adventure seekers. The scenic vicinity of Neelimala opens numerous scintillating trails that go through coffee plantations, virgin forests and acres of flowery land.
On reaching the top is the View point which offers a spectacular picture of the lush green downward slopes of the Western Ghats.

The waterfall occasionally gets overshadowed with a thick covering of mist which not only adds to its milky contrast, but instils a feeling of being solitary in the mountains for the tourists.
