Thirparappu Falls, Kanyakumari
(3.7/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Kanyakumari trip generator to add Thirparappu Falls and other attractions to your Kanyakumari vacation plans.

  • It is a good place to spend the day. It takes about 1.5 hours by car to reach this place from Kanyakumari. The place is nicely built with all the safety required. Bifurcation has been created between waterfalls. The force of the water is normal. Changing rooms have been provided. For kids, two part areas are there. It also has a swimming pool which was not very clean. It is open till 7pm.
  • Tirparappu Water Falls is a small attraction place in Kanyakumari. Definitely a worth if you like to shower in a water falls. Entry tickets for one person is just Rs 5 and there is a boating facility available for a nominal fee. Places near by : Mathur aqueduct Adikesava perumal temple
  • If you are from kerala you will never tell that this is the best water fall. But still a good one. Only problem is the croud. Parking fee is 40rs. Entrance fee is 5rs per head
