Are you a fan of the mega hit Baahubali franchise? No? What about the Mani Ratnam directed Dil Se, Guru? And many other such blockbuster movies have shared this unique waterfall to shoot one or numerous grand scenes or music. Still clueless about which place I'm talking about?
Athirappilly falls, also known as India's Niagara falls is a 80 ft. high grand waterfall situated in the Thrissur district on the Chalakkudy river. It is also Kerala's largest waterfall, and is a treat to your senses in the middle of a vast Sholayar ranges. We decided to head out to this majestic beauty of nature after dropping our plans to Varkala. From Fort Kochi the falls are around 78 kms if you don't take the ferry to Kochi, and takes a good 3-3.5 hours to reach. We were putting up at Happy Camper in Fort Kochi. Took a Honda Navi on rent for the day for Rs. 400 and drove out to the falls.
