Thirparappu Falls, Kanyakumari

3.7
#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.

  • wonderful arrangement for enjoying the waterfall. Separate for ladies and gents. Do not pay for boating or other activity. We paid for boating and had to walk long distance to the boats. Once reached there was nobody to guide and the river did not seem very clean. Waited and preferred to return without boating. Once you see the source of waterfall , you may not want to inside the water fall. But, one time experience is must. Place for car parking . Roads are good.
  • Perfect place to enjoy and to spend a half day or more.. great during rainy season...but parking charges are too high and to take camera in you will have to pay something around 125... other than that there is no much negatives.. go as a gang and you will have a great day.
  • Beautiful falls. Just water is falling from around 50 feet. You can take bath under the falls and it's safe as well. You can enjoy playing in water and separate zone for women to take bath under the water. No much walking required to reach the falls. Toilets are not maintenance well.
  • Beautiful water falls, enjoyed a lot with family. Nice trip from kanyakumari. Picturesque location surrounded by rubber trees. Refreshing experience. Parking could be a problem. Not much good restaurant around, better to pack food and have it there.
  • Very peaceful place... But gets crowded during holidays. Separated waterfalls available for ladies. The children's park is good to spend some time after bath. Parking will be difficult once the alloted parking space is over. There might be private parking which we should pay.

The end of the line, Kanyakumari has a number of accommodations to host those adventurous enough to come here. Located close to the train station, along the handily named Main Road, you'll find some popular budget options, including family-run guesthouses and simple hotels.
