The mesmeric view of a waterfalls always refreshes us with its silver strings of water gushing out of rocks surrounded by green woods. I had the fortune of visiting Athirapally waterfalls with one of my cousins during my college days in Kerala. I highly cherish each moment that I spent in this naturally woven exemplary place with love and pleasure.
Athirapally falls is the largest waterfalls in Kerala located amidst the towering greenery of Sholayar. The journey to reach the top of the waterfalls in rocky beds itself is thrilling. Dense greenery of the rainforests and the dark narrow passage lead to the widely spread pools of water from where water falls down from a height of 80 feet with silver parallel streams. During monsoon, Athirapally waterfalls reaches its acme of beauty with high volume of water falling down the rocks forming foams and mists.
The Athirappally Falls is a part of the Chalakudy River, originating in Western Ghats. The rainforests of Sholayar form the towering green foliage for this falls that has different kinds of flora and fauna. Several rare, endangered species of birds have made their home in Athirapally waterfalls.This wild beauty of nature would always pamper you in your memories once you visit it.
