The Most Beautiful Waterfall of Kerala - Athirappally

Nature in its abundance is wild and beautiful, on reaching Athirapally one get to feel the beauty of cascading waterfall in all its charm. Athirapally attracts tourists from North and South India alike, as it is one of the favorite locations for many Bollywood and other regional languages movies. This waterfall is called as the Niagara Waterfall of India. Athirapally waterfall is the largest waterfall in Kerala. It falls from a height of 80 ft and is 330 ft wide.

Athirapally Falls is located in Athirapally Panchayat, Chalakudy Taluk in Thrissur District of Kerala. The slow running Chalakudy River originates in the Anamudi mountains and acquires vigor on nearing Athirapally, and falls down the 80ft rock and remains turbulent for 1 kilometer.

On reaching the Athirapally Waterfall entrance, there are shops and food joints and from there, one has to walk to get the view of the waterfall. From this point, one will be able to get the view of the river flowing and falling down from the rocks to the steep valley. Again you have to trek downhill to get the exact view of the waterfall. It takes 10 to 15 mins to trek down the hills to get the picturesque look of the waterfall and the frothing water. The trip to Athirapally is totally incomplete without this downhill trek.
