Mallela Theertham is a waterfall located in the Nallamala Forest in Mahbubnagar, Telangana, India.[1] The River Krishna flows through this forest. It is located around 58 km from Srisailam and 185 km from Hyderabad.


Mallela Theertham is in the middle of the dense forest. A walk down 350 steps is required to access the waterfall.

The best flows are from the months of October to February. March to June is the dry season. The remaining months are rainy months, and it is very difficult to drive on the muddy road. The water comes from a small rivulet and from this area, it flows through the dense jungle and then meets the Krishna RiverThis place is near to Achampet.


It is said that many sages have performed penances there for Shiva and Shiva has himself appeared there to many of his devotees.[citation needed] It is believed that many tigers visit there to drink water during summer.[citation needed]
