Muthyala Maduvu (Near Bangalore) - 43 Kms
At a distance of 43 Kms from Bangalore (towards Hosur on NH7, diversion at Chandapura after Electronic City via Anekal), Muthyala Maduvu is a small & cute waterfall. Also known as Pearl Valley, it is a popular picnic spot around Bangalore.
Muthyalu means Pearls and Maduvu means Pond or Pool in Kannada. Situated in the midst of hills, nestled deep down in a valley, this secluded place makes a fascinating picnic spot. It is known for its verdant surroundings with water falling from a height of over 100 ft. Take a dive in this crystal clear water and feel one with nature. There are a couple of waterfalls in a small narrow valley. Overlooking these falls is a small shrine dedicated to Shiva, adding a religious touch to the place.
Monsoons (Aug to Nov) is the best time to visit this place. A little walk over around 100 well laid steps from the parking place takes you to the falls. There is a restaurant and restrooms are available near parking place. More Photos
