Mallalli Trek The best way to reach the location of the Mallalli Falls is by trekking. It's a pleasant route and has wide concrete steps that lead to the waterfall. The Government has taken efforts to make the waterfalls easily accessible and convenient for visitors. As you trek, you will experience little, mesmerizing streams of water tumbling over the sturdy, black boulders on the mountain.  Trekkers can drive from Somwarpet to Kalahali Road which is a 10-kilometre drive. Beyond Kalahali Road, the route narrows down, just enough for a small car to pass. It is advisable that the visitors park their vehicles here and begin trekking up the route which is only a 2-3 kilometre walk up the mountain. This trek is perfect for those who are in for an adventure in the sunny but misty climate and those who want to discover and explore the thick forests, fruit orchards or private coffee plantation estates around the waterfall region. If you wish to visit the bottom of the waterfall, you can track the stream and walk carefully down the falls. It will barely take another 40?45 minutes of trekking, but the view is stunning. As you walk down, do notice the cool and refreshing drizzle from the waterfalls. If you wish to capture some gorgeous pictures, head towards the viewpoint marked near and gather memories like never before.  Geography of Mallalli Falls The Mallalli Falls are located in the Western Ghats of India and fall in Coorg, Karnataka.
