Athirappilly Water Falls, Chalakudy Reviews - Write a Review

  • Perennial waterfalls!! You can get full view of the waterfalls if you go down after reaching the river point. You'll get drenched by the force of waterfalls in that place. It's quite trek to reach that full view point of the waterfalls. Only thing we didn't like was the placement of ticket counter. There's a board near entrance ticket counter is 200M away.. but you have to walk more than half a km one way to buy tickets from the entrance of this falls. There's a cloak room at the entrance of this waterfalls. 5 rupees per bag.. and 5 rupees per helmet. 30 rupees entrance ticket. 15 rupees parking ticket for two wheeler

  • Just one word "WOW". Beautiful roads from Valparai. Loved each and every bit of the drive.

  • Very nice area. Good to enjoying weekend's

  • Amidst nature.You'll feel great seeing the hue of milky white by the fall of Chalakudy river with green background. Great spot for trek loving people.

  • Otherwise called as the Niagra of South India, Athirappilly water falls is an amazing place to be.. water is clean.. the State highway to Athirappilly s from Kochi is really fantastic.. it has got many curves with lush greenery on both the sides... Driver will love the journey.. there is one thing to keep in mind.. the entry into the waterfalls requires a ticket which will be issued at the counter. The counter closes by 17:00 hrs. From 17:01, nobody will be sent in
