Thirparappu Falls, Kanyakumari

3.6
#2 of 8 in Parks in Kanyakumari
Watch the swelling river thunder over Thirparappu Falls, descending 50 ft (15 m) to the pools below. With a river bed of solid rock, the falls stretch 300 ft (91 m) across; low waters give you the chance to see rocky pools. Take the opportunity to bathe and cool off in the pools below the falls, though prepare for a busy atmosphere (earlier hours tend to have fewer crowds). Note that the site has nothing in the way of food or changing facilities; plan accordingly. Thirparappu Falls is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Kanyakumari Edition.

  • It was a very short visit. On the other side, I thought it looked familiar and the local there said that indeed, it was used for film shooting. That was exciting.  more »

  • I went to the falls on a weekday and that was a good decision... The crowd was less and had plenty of opportunity to take bath and enjoy the water falls. A must see place if you want a simple and small water falls.
  • Nice falls. The height is low but the infrastructure built helps families help everyone to enjoy the waterfalls in a safe way. Has rooms to dress change. No cloak rooms. Parking is tough on weekends.
  • One of the best place to relax and spend time with family. The water falls was very easy to reach by walk. If some more facilities for visitors are added, it will be one of the best picnic spot in Tamil Nada.
  • Good place to visit with family in weekends. Its a small waterfall but is looking good. There is a beautiful garden and temple near the waterfall. Boating facility is also available.
  • lovely place to be with your family and friends. there is a boating area nearby and quite a few movies scenes were done near the falls. Go to this place if you are too much worried about the properties of water, but to enjoy the falls.
