Hello Nature Lovers!

Mallela Theertham is a beautiful waterfall nestled in the dense Nallamala Forest range. With a distance of nearly 180 Km from Hyderabad, it makes for am exciting day trip. Picturesque cotton plantations surrounded by lush green hills welcome tourists as they approach waterfalls.

It’s a soothing sight to watch with the water falling from a height of 160 feet. It forms a natural swimming pool where it touches the ground. One needs to descend around 300 well laid steps by tourism department to reach the waterfall located in a valley. The rocks at the waterfalls are slippery, one needs to be careful walking around. It’s really worth taking bath in the ice cold water filled with minerals. Taking a dip in this chilled water truly refreshes your senses.

The place is very scenic during and after monsoons (starting from June). Usually there is good amount of water through out the winter also (end of January). Mallelatheertham forms a stream that eventually merges into mighty Krishna river close to the temple town of Srisailam.
