Mallela Theertham is one of the popular waterfalls of Nalla malla forest, a perfect spot during summer to get drenched in the water. The location of water fall is even though remote, one can easily reach with the help of sign-boards and an advantage is the presence of a single road to reach the water fall.

The location and surrounding of Mallela Theertham is maintained well with facilities to park vehicles and a small botanical garden with canteen. I guess the canteen will be open during the season and may not be there in other seasons as visitors are less. Greenery and pleasant environment allows relaxing brain and body!

One has to step down to reach the water fall. Cement concrete steps (may be 250) are made with railings for support while climbing up. As the water fall is nearing we can feel the cold weather. It is advisable not to get in to water as it is very slippery. It is not allowed to get into water during monsoon as water flow will be high but during other season one can take bit risk as the water flow will be less. The rocks on which waterfalls is slippery with sharp edges, so be careful while getting into water.

Presence of temple next to water fall makes it even a spiritual place. Shivalinga along with Ganesha, Dattatreya and Durga make this place unique. Mallela Theertham is a must visit on the Srisailam route.
