Niagara of South India
The majestic Athirappilly Falls originates in the Western Ghats and flows through the Chalakudy River in Thrissur district. This splendid waterfall is often touted as the Niagara of South India. The dense forest on the banks of the water falls is home to several unique flora and fauna that are on the verge of extinction.
The waterfalls is on the state highway that connects Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Travelling at night isn’t allowed in this route due to the presence of wild animals. The check posts at both borders will be closed by 6.30 pm. All the vehicles should cross these check posts before this. The meandering roads and the serene charm of the countryside could be enjoyed as you travel from Chalakudy to Athirappilly.

The waterfall gains volume in the monsoon from June to September. Millions of travellers from around the globe visit Athirappilly and the nearby Vazhachal to enjoy the mesmerizing beauty of nature.
