A small river called Sittaru, locally called as Chitrangada, falls from a height of 33 metres in the first leap which is called as Then Aruvi (Honey Stream). The second leap is called Shambuga Aruvi (Champaka stream). Here the water descends rapidly from a height of 10 metres. Finally, the water cascades down from a height of 90 metres, which is actually called as the Courtallam Falls. As the water flows through forest abounding in several medicinal herbs, the water of the falls is considered to possess excellent therapeutic qualities. The town is noted for its salubrious climate and natural scenery that has given it the name as the Spa of the South.
