Thirparappu Falls, Kanyakumari

3.7
#2 of 12 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.

  • Tirparappu Water falls is around 50+km (1hour 15minutes drive) from Kanyakumari. You will love driving to Tirparappu because of going through the beautiful mountains and villages around. Its full of natural beauty. At Tirparappu i enjoyed bathing under natural shower. A nice place to enjoy with kids, family and friends.
  • It's small waterfalls. It's artificially created by slightly modifying the course of water. Commercialized but quite inexpensive. Both rowing and pedalling boats are available. Changing rooms and toilets are available here. They have created separate place for men and women for bathing in the water falls. Water is not so clean. Lot of shops are there nearby, selling snacks, coffee, tea, toys and fancy items. It's okay to spend some time here but not fascinating. Not just here anywhere you go please don't litter everywhere.
  • It's wonderful place to enjoy in water falls.. Both gender can enjoy secure and safe... There is some bakeries and garment shops near the falls... Children also have fun with falls... Don't miss it.. Go enjoy...
  • Very nice place to enjoy your holidays along with family and friends, you have a great time. Good that you have separated place for kids and ladies. It is safe, compared to other locations. Parking is bit crowded on holidays especially.
  • Very beautiful place. You can take a bath under the waterfalls and can enjoy the view from the top of the water falls. It's also nice having a small pedal boat ride around the waters(its very cheap too).
