The Falls is very Excellent that any one will like it. It is said that it is a man made, but we cant see any difference... This is a worth visiting natural site. There is a boat ride also. Don't miss this spot. Excellent Picnic spot..

We went with family and all enjoyed, the force of the water is amazing. Even though we went in August the weather was hot, so we did enjoyed good time in the water. The good thing was very less crowd. There is a entrance fee for the Falls which is unusual compare to other falls.

If it is during the monsoon time you can take bath in the falls... if the south west monsoon is very active you can only watch and you will not be let to bath as water gushing will be very turbulent...luckily we had bath ...in the falls

You can take a good shower, natural massage with the water pressure. This place used to be awesome 10 15 years ago (quiet and clean) and not has become completely commercialism. the place is very clean these days. The entry is not very expensive. (I am Biased to give V. Good ;)... )

Thirparappu is a small town in Kanyakumari district of Tamilnadu, India. Famous for its waterfall and is located 42 kms from Nagercoil. There are direct buses from Nagercoil main bus-stand for Rs 20. Not a big fall but OK to enjoy for long in falling water.

Nice place to chill out, some times it is crowded other wise a beautiful place, Nice place to take children for a day out, lot of place areas and activities, after renovation looks much better, still the place can be kept clean, avoid plastic and bottles.

It is a well maintained small water fall with a manicured garden where you can have a refreshing bath. There is an ancient Siva temple just by the side of the falls. Was surprised to see stone craft around the temple ground of a snake chasing a frog

It was more of a glorified shower than a waterfall. The boat ride was pretty good compared to the falls.
