This waterfall is really breath taking. The speciality of Athirappilly is that we can enjoy it’s beauty from top and bottom. It will be more beautiful if you are able to visit it during monsoon as the beauty of the waterfalls depends on the amount of water flowing through the river.
Vazhachal Falls are upstream of Athirapally, about 5-6km apart by the road that goes alongside the Chalakudy River. The falls at Vazhachal are more of a continuous series of massive rapids encompassing the entire stretch of river at … where else? but Vazhachal! The ticket that we purchased to enter the Athirapally falls area was also valid for Vazhachal.
The Charpa falls are on the road between Athirapally and Vazhachal. When we went immediately after the monsoons, they were full and impressive. Like us, all visitors to Athirapally will also see Charpa and Vazhachal. There is no fee to see Charpa as it is a roadside waterfall, after all.
