Soochippara Falls in Kerala – Needle Rock

Soochippara Falls is in a beautiful location, in the middle of a dense green forest at Vellarimala in Wayanad. The drive from Kalpetta is scenic. We passed beautiful tea gardens with manicured bushes which stand on the slopes of small hills. The hills seemed to stretch endlessly. If you are travelling in the mornings, you are will come across female workers plucking tea leaves from the bushes. Travellers may know that Kerala is one among 50 Places of a Lifetime as rated by National Geographic.
