Dudes: Me, Amar, Vivian, Harish
I was planning for the short trips around Mysore after buying my new Bull (Bullet Std 350 CC), and we decided to go Mallalli falls which is in Coorg. This is Kumaradhara River which will later go to Kukke Subrahmanya!! This is around 130KM’s from Mysore,
I have invited one more college of mine Vivian, he had bought new TB, Harish joined him, and Amar was glad to join me.So total 4 peoples are all geared for the trip The route which we took was: Mysore–>Hunsur–>Kushal Nagar–>Somwarpet–>Mallalli Falls Route Map: https://www.google.co.in/maps/dir/Mysuru,+Karnataka/Mallalli+Water+Falls,+Kumaralli,+Karnatakaemail@example.com,76.1010498,10z/data=!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0x3baf70381d572ef9:0x2b89ece8c0f8396d!2m2!1d76.6393805!2d12.2958104!1m5!1m1!1s0x3ba51de48fdc729b:0x649b67a3f4bccf84!2m2!1d75.723867!2d12.681436!3e0 We all met in common place and left Mysore around 10:30, it was pretty hot, I had to remove my leather jacket !! We took small T breaks on the way to falls.. Road is very good till the last 3 KM’s to the falls
We reached last tarred road, it was 3 KM’s before falls, There is one Homestay right @ the point, (sorry I forgot the name). We have to order food in advance, so we ordered food and they told they need min 30 min or so… Then we took our bulls to the falls starting point… The last 3 KM’s stretch is very bad, Ups and downs and road is full of lose stones.. it is difficult to go in doubles.. our bulls got skid in couple of places Finally we reached Falls Starting point.. We were little disappointed to see less water in the falls, We decided to go till down and get into water On the way there was one lovely spot, there is Rock at the edge of the cliff, If you can able to climb on that you can see entire cliff We went to that place to took some nice snaps.. Vivian had little height phobia so he was struggling
Only till some distance there is cement steps, after that it is rough terrain till the water falls but it is very scenic We reached the falls and water was very pure and cold, we enjoyed for some time..
There will be one guy guiding all tourists, It is very dangerous even if you know swimming.. I suggest not to go deep in water and careful while walking on stones as it will be very slippery After that we came back to home stay which is 3 KM’s from that falls, we had nice lunch and Coorg style Pork also.. We left around 5:30 PM and reached home around 8:30 PM…
Best time to visit: June end or July (During monsoon)

Edit on 20th July 2017:
I had chance to visit this wonderful falls once again during monsoon and falls was flowing full, green everywhere.. awesome weather..
They have laid nice cement road till the falls view point.. earlier it was horrible..
Entry fee is 100/- per car..for bike its 30 I guess not sure..
3 KMS before falls there are 2 hotels where you will get some food and tea/coffee..
again at the view point, there is small hotel where you can get Omlet/Maggie 🙂
I had visited this falls once during summar and during rainy season.. both time its nice…
during summer you can go till water point and play with water.. during rainy season its very dangerous to get into water.. not advisable ..
couples be careful as its lonely place..you can see some crowed only during weekend not on weekdays..
Kids have to be careful in the steps and view point.. there will be leaches also during rainy season..
I am attaching photos of the hotels there, you can call them and order food…
