Vazhachal Falls, Athirappilly

#2 of 28 in Parks in Thrissur District
Organize a picnic near the gushing water in a forested area at Vazhachal Falls. The water here isn’t falling or cascading but streaming in an almost horizontal fall down the steeply inclined rocks to the bottom of the hill. Enjoy the naturesque landscape while you relax in the tranquil area. Bring your own food, or buy it in the nearby town. Guards at vigil ensure the safety of everyone. Although the stream appears to be shallow, don’t step into the water--the rocks are slippery and protrude from the water, forming underwater crevices which add to the danger.

  • If you are visiting Athirapally Falls, give this one a visit, too. Not too disappointing. More of horizontal water rapids than a fall. Must be spectacular in monsoons.  more »
  • A small walk from the parking lot takes us to the breathtaking view of the falls. We can't have a bath here.  more »
