The breathtaking Athirapally falls and landscape are just a day trip away from Cochin. Enjoy the air-conditioned ride to see the stunning beauty of the Athirapally, Vazhachal, and Chapra Waterfalls, before enjoying a local lunch in an area restaurant.
What to Expect
Enjoy a day at the stunning Athirapally Waterfalls. Boasting 80 ft (25 m) waterfalls, the Athirapally Falls join the Chalakkudy River just 3 miles (5 km) from Valparai Hill Station. With an excellent tea estate, Valparai is one of India's highest-density elephant habitats. Located between Parambikulam and Malayattur, the Athirapally Falls area includes the beautiful Chapra Falls and Vazhachal Falls as well.
The Vazhachal Waterfall are located very close to the Athirapally falls in a lush, green forest, and are a part of the Chalakudy River. Vazhachal is popular for its flora and herbal plantations, maintained by the forest department.
The lesser-known Chapra falls are situated to the east of Athirapally. The water plunges covers the road in the monsoon season, so be prepared to get wet if you are visiting it in the rainy season.
Those looking for adventure can trek to the base of the waterfalls by hiking along the mountain slopes. With slippery rocks and strong undercurrents nearby, the strenuous trail offers amazing views of the landscape and close-up views of the waterfalls. After spending the whole day at Athirapally, including a local lunch at an area restaurant, return back to Cochin in the evening.
