Palaruvi,literally stream of milk, is one of Kerala's most picturesque waterfalls, cascading down a height of 300 feet. It is a favourite picnic spot for visitors from all over south India.
The journey to Palaruvi through the dense tropical forest is a spellbinding experience. The surrounding mist clad blue hills and green valleys form a stunning backdrop to the milk white burst of foam whose muffled roar resounds through the otherwise tranquil virgin forest.
The forest is home to rare medicinal plants and trees. Palaruvi is located about 75 km away from Kollam on the KollamShencottah road.
