One gets to see curious onlooker and vast valleys more often on Charmadi. Undisturbed hill ranges, beautiful waterfalls and the deep showers transform Charmadi into a magical realm. Every time when I pass through the Charmadi Ghat, I start dreaming about to spend at least a short time in Alekan waterfalls, it is one of the most beautiful waterfalls hardly 2kms from Malayamaruta and 5kms from Kottigehara. Alekan falls is visible completely from the roadside, one can also get down sharp 200 meters to reach the base of the falls.
Alekan waterfalls blessed with everlasting natural beauty leaves nature lovers in awe and admiration. The wonderful species of bird’s life around here is truly awesome the falls and its adjacent landscape are beautiful as the ones depicted in fairy tales.
The beauty of these falls blooms with the onset of season of natural showers. During monsoon water fall runs with incredible speed and vigour and time from August till early December is best to visit the place.
It would be a good idea to spend a day in Monsoon just roaming back and forth in this stretch. Every inch is so scenic across the Ghat road you may want to stop at all places & get lost in nature! You will get your own private scenic spots in each visit! Actually it’s a humid place on a sunny day you will feel steaming with sweat.
