Athirapally Waterfalls, Kerala

Been there recently?

This waterfall is formed by the Chalukkady river and situated near Athirapally village. If you are a nature lover, then it is one of the best places to visit. The river falls to a depth of about 80 feet across a rocky cliff into a shallow valley rich with varieties of flora all around. The view of the waterfall and the valley with the river flowing away is so soothing that you would not want to leave the place. There is a path that leads to the base and from here another angle of view can be enjoyed. If the view from above is pleasant, the view from base is powerful. It is said to be the best and the highest waterfall in the state of Kerala which is attracting more and more tourists over the years. The waterfall is at its enchanting best just after the monsoons, when the water level in the river is just about right and it covers the entire length of the waterfall. July to October is the best time to visit and during November to December water level would be low but still worth a visit. It is located approximately 60 kilometres away from Thrissur, the district headquarters. The nearest rail station is at Chalakudy, about 30 kilometres away and the nearest airport is approximately 45 kilometres away at Cochin.
