Athirappilly Waterfalls

Radiating a sense of charisma and tranquility, Athirappilly waterfalls is truly a treasured feature for Kerala.

It is situated in the Athirappilly panchayath of Thrissur and is the largest waterfall in the State, located 52.7 km from the city centre. Located on the embankment of the Chalakudy river, which springs from the upper reaches of the Western Ghats at the ingress of the Sholayar ranges, this majestic cataract is also known as ‘The Niagara of South India’. The entry ticket to the waterfalls is available from the Sholayar check-post, approximately 2 km away from the falls. Monkeys are the greeters of this scenic beauty, so be ready to be welcomed by them in troops.

The trek to the top of the waterfall is directed through a paved path that leads through thick bamboo clusters. For quick bites and snacks, there are a few snack bars at the spot, managed by the Eco-Development Committee of the forest department. The restrooms are maintained well and there is ample facility for the tourists to relax a bit. If you can manage a small and steep hike down the hill, you could get a better view of the waterfall. The currents can be quite unpredictable, hence it isn't advisable to take a dip in the waterfall.
