Mallela Thirtham Waterfall

A gem of a place located on the Srisailam highway about 180 KMS from Hyderabad.

If you like to wake up early and are game to soak on some free vitamin D, then this is the perfect place to visit.

We started our ride from pillar number 48 PVNR express way; The ride started off at 7 am with some winter chill still left in the air, the sun slowly coming out but was still humble with its intensity.

You ride through the nice pristine tar roads towards Srisailam.

First pitstop was for breakfast, we had some nice and fresh south Indian breakfast which was complimented with some inhouse Chinese tea 😊

The food was good would not say lip smacking by enough to hold on to.

And then we set out for our next pitstop on the way, Dindi dam- a nice short ride destination if you want to just get away from the hustle of the city life to spend some calm time at the dam. (Note: nothing much to do around Dindi dam though)

Continue riding on the clean straight roads, marinated with some sexy curves when you go up the hills. It’s green all around and some friendly visits by our ancestors, smart enough to wait near the speed breakers to seek attention or rather in hope to find some food (strictly my advice – please don’t feed them).

Then you take a quick left and enter a small hamlet that takes you closer to your destination. This is where you leave behind the tar and welcome the hard road, there will be a quick stop to be made to pay entry fee. Then it’s about 6-7 kms of pristine off-road that is real fun to reach the entry gate.

You enter you park!! Make sure all your belongings are kept safe not only from monkeys but humans as well 😊

Once you settle down you need to gear up to take a few flight of stairs to reach the waterfalls (not too many steps just about 350 odd stairs).

Once you reach down you can hear the waterfalls and start to feel the mist in the air.

Though it stands tall, it’s no Niagara Falls, but again Niagara Falls is just a few thousand miles away. Let’s show you what we saw when we visited in the month of Feb. the water depends on the season so expect something new when you plan to visit post reading this.

Some picture of the amazing place, note there were some locals mentioning that summers does attract animals near the moat, even tigers.

Now that you have experience the mighty Mallela Thirtham Falls. It’s time for us to help you find some calories back that you would have burnt taking the flight of stairs up.

We had an amazing lunch thanks to aunty at KPR. I highly recommend that you eat there. Specials she made was the chicken fry, chicken curry and the anda burji was a killer too.

The ride back is always not as exciting as it was in the morning, but boys need to be back home 😊

We started back from Mallela Thirtham post lunch at 3:00 PM and were at our respective homes by 6:30 PM. (Note this all depends on the amount of traffic)
