Athirappilly Falls

Athirappilly Falls is located in the Trissur district of Kerala which is a southern state of India. The 80 feet high water fall is one of the most popular waterfalls in  southindia. This marvelous water which flows bearing all the perfect memories is situated in the midst of the Chalakudy River which originate from the Anamudi mountains of the Western Ghats. The water of the river swishes, and swirls as it nears Athirapally. The water gets blustery and it gushes around the rocks and pours down in three separate curls.

Either side of the river is the dense forest which holds innumerous varieties of flora and fauna. It is the place left in the Western Ghats where one could find all different varieties of Hornbills chirping merrily.This harmonious and well sustained ecosystem has already been frayed by men. The mining activities and the oncoming of hydroelectric projects on the Chalakudy River has already torn apart this friable piece of land.
