This waterfall was a really nice place to visit. Even though you need to trek down a little bit through the reserve forest and the way down to the waterfall is pretty hard to go it was a nice place worth seeing. Those who would like to see the natural waterfall would love this and the sound of waterfall.

Athirapally warerfalls is approx 60 kms from Kochi. After our tour of Munnar, Thekkady, Alleppey we visited Athirapally before taking our flight back home. The drive is lovely as you approach close to the falls as you are surrounded by forests. From the entrance to the falls the walk is quite strenuous so you may skip it if you have... More

Located 60 kms from Thrissur town, this is the most spectacular waterfalls in Kerala due to its height and width. A 15 min trek through the forest trail takes you to this stunning waterfall which is surrounded by dense vegetation and the Sholayar hills. Overall, a must- visit place in Thrissur.

Athirapally water falls is situated near the Tamilnadu Kerala border in the Kerala state . We went from Vaalpaarai through the forest of Kerala and reached Athirapally falls . The route itself is a journey to be remembered. It travels through the dense forest of Kerala and if you are lucky you will come across wild animals . Regarding the... More

Beautiful waterfalls approx 40km away from kochi airport. We spotted deers and many rare birds on our way to the falls. The infrastructure is not well developed and you need to trek for 30min to reach there. But the view is well worth the efforts!

Its an hour ride from cochin airport around 45 kms. The walk to the falls is hectic. The narrow lanes are slippery and half broken so be careful. But when you reach the point where you can have the full view of water fall it's simply amazing. A must watch falls and highly recommend

The place is located very close to Thrissur and we walked down to the waterfall and were amazed to see the beautiful waterfall. The best I have ever seen in India. It is best during the monsoons.
