Thusharagiri Falls in KozhikodeCalicut otherwise known as Kozhikode lying on the coast of Malabar in Kerala is a beautiful city that shot to fame since the landing of Vasco Da Gama in 1498.

The River Challipuzha which is formed out of two streams that originate from Western Ghats diverges into three waterfalls which throw up a fine spray of water that gives a snowy effect. Hence, it got the name of “Thusharagiri” that means “Snowy Peak”.
The highest waterfall called “Thenpara” is situated at Kodencherry which is famous for plantation. The waterfall cascades down from an altitude of 75m and the sight it offers is a delight to everyone’s eyes. This is an evergreen place that abounds in areca nut, rubber, ginger, pepper and spices.
