Athirapally is a popular picnic spot located at the entrance to the Sholayar
ranges 1000 feet above sea level, at a distance of 63kms from Thrissur
and 33 km from Chalakkudi railway station. The water falls from a fairly
good height of approximately 80 mts (150 feet) and joins the Chalakudy
river below. The spectacular view of the crashing waterfall surrounded
by protected forests has made it one of the favorite places for moviemakers.
June to September is the best time to visit this place. Though one can
have a view of the waterfall from the roadside itself, Visitors can go
near the top of the fall for an entrance fee.
Time: 8:00 am to 6:00 pm. Entry Fee - Rs.15 per person. Parking charges
Rs. 15 for vans and Rs.10 for cars.
