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.

  • 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 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).
  • What kind of place is this?? Is it really waterfall?? attraction?? Total flop, terrible place i ever visited. People having bath there in lake or whatever kind of water storage area underneath so kind of waterfall. It is really waste of time, money and energy. Never visit this place. Rather you can give it a miss and try other locations and spend time there.
  • Located nearly 18 KM from Thakkalay this a beautiful and safest water falls. There are separate places for men and women to take bath. They charge RS 40/- for car parking. The entry fee is RS 5/- per head. There is a separate pool for children under 12 years and they charge RS 5/- as entry fee and another Rs 10/- for air filled tube. Even if you don't take bath there, you can simply enjoy watching the falls. Road to this place is very rough so please be prepared for it. I will surely recommend this place to everyone.
  • Visited this place in a week day. Crowd was very high. I didn't find the place interesting maybe due the huge crowd. Waterfall is good. Lots of road side food vendors selling food items.we went to this place in bikes and liked the nature while reaching this place.
