ATHIRAPPILLY WATERFALLS – A CASCADE FALLING FROM HEAVEN

 

Athirappilly waterfall (videos from various angles:  https://youtu.be/ZVi9oSIplpI , https://youtu.be/_8KKzSKkkAs , https://youtu.be/Zl3Qd7plswI , https://youtu.be/Udwsflly2mI , https://youtu.be/VPIk1P62AVQ ) is located at #AthirappillyPanchayath in Thrissur District of Kerala State in India. This natural waterfall is from about more than 80 feet height. It is a must see item when you are in Kerala, particularly in and around Thrissur which is famous for #ThrissurPooram Festivel (Blog:- https://www.indiantravelexperience.manjaly.net/2019/04/thrissur-pooram.html) . 



It is a part of Western Ghats, situated at about 1000 feets above sea level. From this point, the #ChalakudiRiver starts. It is surrounded by mountains with thick #EverGreen forest. The main speciality of the fall is that it is a round the year phenomena, though in the monsoon it is more beautiful and fierce. In the surrounding area, if you are lucky, you can also spot wild animals particularly elephants and many kinds of birds.

If you go a little ahead of Athirappilly waterfall, there is another waterfall, namely CharpaWaterfall. Further about 2 K.M., comes the #VazhachalWaterfall (https://youtu.be/36qESQXSMmk ). The same road goes further to Tamil Nadu State, covering the thick forest of the Western Ghats and its fauna and flora all the way touching Sholayar and Pengalkuthu dams.

On the way to Athirappilly from Chalakudy town, there are also two more picnic spots,  namely, #Thumboormuzhi / #ButterflyGarden (https://youtu.be/dg0eV4g9DlM) and #Ezhattumukham (https://youtu.be/Pyq4cpMUUfQ ). Both these are the two sides of the same Chalakudi River joined together with a hanging bridge. From there, within a few minutes ride, you will reach Athrirappilly Waterfall covering lush green sceneries (https://youtu.be/ae7gwzNMmJk & https://youtu.be/j-uXFtIAJck ).

If you are in a hurry, go without wasting time and you can cover all these places as a one day picnic.

To reach there, frequent public buses are available from Chalakudy town bus stand. Nearest railway station is also Chalakudy (Major Station at Thrissur). Nearest Airport is Nedumbassery (Kochi). Thrissur, Chalakudy and many other places, accommodation is available.
