Vazhachal

When we think of Kerala, the first image that comes to our mind is the beautiful greenery of the State!
This place is located around the west-flowing Chalakudy River of Kerala in the verdant Vazhachal Forest of Western Ghats. It is just 5 km from entrance of
Athirappilly Falls.
Although this spot is called Vazhachal Falls, it is not a waterfall in the true sense. The falls at Vazhachal are more of a continuous series of massive rapids present throughout the entire stretch of the river at Vazhachal.
The river tumbles over huge boulders and rocks down a slope at this spot thus creating a profusion of foam and a waterfall-like impact.
The unspoilt forest region provides a tranquil getaway from a busy city life!!

Athirappally

The name Athirappally immediately brings the vision of the mighty falls of Kerala to the mind.
It is formed by the Chalakudy River that originates in Anamalai ranges of Western Ghats. The beautiful river plunges here as Athirappally Falls. Nature is at its best here!
The waterfalls is a favourite destination and it continues to attract many tourists year-round.
The place is famous as cine location also.
These scenes were captured during the lean season of the falls. When Chalakudy River swells during the monsoon season, Athirappally falls is a sight to behold!!
