At a distance of 32 Kms from Kalpetta, 48 Kms from Kozhikode & 6 Kms from Kodencheri, Thusharagiri waterfall is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Malabar region. Thusharagiri literally means 'snow capped mountains'.
Two streams originating from the Western Ghats meet here to form the Chalippuzha River. The river diverges into three waterfalls creating a snowy spray, which gives the name - Thusharagiri'. The highest of the three falls is the Thenpara Fall dropping from a height of 75 meter. The first waterfall can be reached easily while the remaining two falls can be reached from the first one by trekking through thick forest. A 5 km trek upstream will take one to the origin of the stream. The place offers challenging trekking and rock-climbing through river path and numerous waterfalls.
The best time of the waterfalls can be enjoyed from September to November. Kodencheri is connected by frequent bus service from Kozhikode. Private transportation can be availed at Kodencheri to reach the falls.
There is a motorable road close to the first waterfall.
