If you are comming from Illikal Kallu side, take the first left, which is the also the cross road towards Illaveezhapunchira & Vagamon. After crossing an approx 2kms you need to take right to the narrow road at the kalunkku where you can find the sign boards.
You can park your vechicle there on the road side and can walk for another 1km inorder to reach the waterfalls. This 1km passes through private properties and after crossing some private lands and a narrow river, you will reach the top of the kattikayam waterfalls.Unlike other waterfalls, in kattikayam one should walk through the steep pathway through the sides of the waterfall which is constructed long back ago. This pathway will take you to the bottom of the waterfalls from where you can view the panoroma of the waterfall and the sorrounding area.
