Located in the foothills of Pushpagiri, around 25 km from Somwarpet in the Western Ghats region of Kodagu District in Karnataka. Here Kumaradhara river falls from over 200 feet at two stages to form Mallallai falls. The view from here is spectacular with lush green mountains around and steep valleys. Pushpagiri also known as Kumaraparvata in its backdrop is a truly breathtaking sight.
The best time to visit is during the monsoon that is July through December where there is plenty of water in the river. During the rainy season the trees are really lush green which gives a natural beauty to the falls.
