Thushargiri is a spelllbinding sight to the visitor. 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’. Of the three, the highest waterfall is the Thenpara that falls from an altitude of 75 metres. The roar of the waterfalls can be enjoyed from September to November. The waterfall with its gentle spray is sure to soothe every eye. The cascading waters of the waterfall slides past with surfy smiles.
Situated at Kodencherry in Kozhikode district, the plantation destination that abounds in rubber, arecanut, pepper, ginger and spices is also a trekker’s delight. Trekker’s start early morning from the second waterfalls at the hills and climb up through the pristine dense evergreen forests teeming with exotic birds and animals to reach Vythiri and Waynad district by evening. The place offers challenging trekking and rock-climbing through river path and numerous waterfalls. It is a place of beauty, calm, and serenity. The place has a crocodile farm run by the state forest department.
Thusharagiri is situated 55 kms away from Kozhikode City and the ‘Green Splender’ considered as the major tourist destination in Malabar region with water falls right in the middle of the forest.
