When a holiday is planned to Kerala, especially during monsoon and after monsoon, a visit to Athirappally is a must. To enjoy the best of nature and its grace, you can hire a bicycle and peddle it from Thrissur to Athirappally and then proceed to Vazhachal. If peddling is not so convenient, think of a ride from Kochi to Valparai via the most famous waterfalls of Kerala. This eco-friendly tourism destination doesn’t confine its guests to just one waterfalls; you will experience several waterfalls, riverside attractions, and some of the endangered and endemic species of flora and fauna.
Taking the trip a bit more closer to the nature, you can try a nature walk with forest authorities after obtaining necessary permits and passes. As a continuation to what one experience at Athirappally, a collection of ripples, popular as Vazhachal waterfalls, is located at a distance of 5 kilometers from Athirappilly. Vazhachal is also the entry point to Vazhachal forest division. Entry to Vazhachal forest division is possible after obtaining a permit from the forest checkpost at Vazhachal.
