Athirappilly Waterfalls, Thrissur

4.7
#1 of 21 in Parks in Thrissur District
Called by many the "Niagara of India," Athirappilly Waterfalls represent the tallest falls in the state of Kerala. Hike the undulating road through a picturesque setting sprinkled with villages and lush greenery, until you reach the top of the falls. For a closer look at the rushing water, you can take the narrow road to the base of the falls--if you do, walk carefully on the steep and slippery path. A visit to Athirappilly Waterfalls represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Thrissur route planner to plot your vacation.
