Soco Falls – Hidden by the road

Soco falls is a beautiful, double waterfall on the edge of the Cherokee Indian Reservation, located near Maggie Valley. Its one among the most lovely waterfalls, by the Blue Ridge parkway – just 1.5 miles south of Soco Gap @ Milepost 455.7. Look for the small roadside parking area on the left of the road. It is easy to miss, since there is just one tiny sign.

This view requires a short hike. It is not a cake walk, but not super hard either. You need to be careful as it is steep and a bit slippery, especially when wet. But the adventure is well worth the view, wouldn’t you agree :)

Milky Meenmutty Falls from Gods Own Country

Wayanad is a prominent district in Gods Own Country – Kerala. Places of interest around here are abundant ranging from water falls, Caves, Dam, Viewpoints, reserved forests and many more. But among all Meenmutty falls definitely tops the list.

Meenmutty falls at 300 meters is majestic (if you are keen, you can see people down at the foot of the waterfall for scale). The three tiers of the waterfall requires separate hike through the forest. After a perilous and tiring 2 kms hike, one is rewarded with this amazing panoramic view.  At a few points the trek is treacherous and steep – but once you get out there, you just forget everything. The milky water tearing apart the dense greenery of Wayanad forests is a sight to behold.
