The beautiful falls can be seen only from a distance. The river leading to the falls is closed for access since the guards say that there are many glass pieces in the water due to the recent floods.
You can go to the foot of the falls. However, if you have difficulty walking or have any type of bone/joint issues, please avoid going to the foot of the falls as both the ascend and descend are very slippery and dangerous.
As far as possible, wear only sports shoes or flat footwear with good grip. Avoid heels at any cost. Carry sunglasses and hat also.

Entrance fee is Rs.50. Absolutely no plastic allowed. However you can carry water in tupperware bottles.
There are a few snack stalls near the falls.

Use public transport like bus to reach the Waterfalls if you don't have your own vehicle.

There are a lot of shops on the main road near the entrance to the Waterfalls where you get curios, toys and other snacks. There are a few good restaurants also.

Police aid post and first aid post are available for emergency.

Must visit in Kerala if you’re a nature lover and photographer, one of the most scenic water falls in India,located in Chalakudy taluk in Thrissur District of Kerala on the Chalakudy river, you will have two views of waterfalls from its top and bottom, walking towards bottom will be little bit difficult for elederly people, but we saw many old aged people were enjoying the walk and view from from bottom, always buy water bottles from from the entrance as the walk towards bottom of the falls are very tiring, but the view from bottom is awesome so the walk is really worth ,better to visit the place in monsoon season, avoid visiting the place on the peak of summer, only in monsoon You can watch Athirapally at its full fledge.

We were here last month to take a sneak peek at the famous waterfall scene from bahubali and it did not disappoint. It takes a bit of hike to visit this place. Make sure to carry a waterbottle as the hike can make you tired and thirsty.

Amazing natural water fall .We enjoyed a lot. Should be very carefull if children are with u because the way to water fall is little slippery. Also obey the instructions of forest guards and life guards.

True wonder of nature. A very serene and soothing surrounding near the falls. Accessibility is not an issues as it is on main road. A decent ticket amount of 30 per head and some vehicle charges. The view is just astounding. The entrance to falls takes you to top of the falls. The bottom part is accessible from a different point maybe. But few points closed view recent floods. An easy one day trip fro. Kochi city if you have your own transportation. Few other falls are just ahead.

The pounding power of water can be experienced here, a short day trip from Thrissur city. Along with Chappa Falls, a little further away, Athirappily waterfalls ensure that water power stays in memory, indelibly.

I hadn’t heard of these waterfalls before (though I had actually seen it onscreen—some of the most dramatic moments of the recent blockbuster Baahubali were shot here). However, visiting a friend in Thrissur, I was taken off by her to see the falls, which are located up in the forested hills about 60 km from Thrissur.

As it happened, we visited Athirappilly at a time when Kerala was experiencing monsoon showers of a magnitude not seen for over thirty years. Entire areas had been flooded, rivers were in spate—and the falls were like nothing my friend (who’s been seeing them for years) had seen. She told me (and this I could see from photos on signboards around) that the falls are usually in four definite and distinct ‘strands’, so to say: four separate streams of water. Because of the rain, there was so much water that these four separate streams had pretty much combined to form two main torrents, foaming and frothing and very, very impressive, with clouds of spray rising up and even cloaking the surrounding forest in mist.

Also because of the rain, the path down to the foot of the falls (which, I was told, is somewhat uneven and is a dirt track) would be treacherously slippery and muddy: it had therefore been shut off. We could only view the falls from a viewing point opposite, beside the road. It’s a very panoramic view, but I would really have liked to see the falls closer up.

On busy days, when there are lots of tourists here, shops selling souvenirs and local produce open on both sides of the road. These were closed on the day why we visited, since there were almost no tourists around.

It is the best waterfall in Kerala. You have to visit the place during monsoon. Have to take the ticket from forest office en route. There is two view points in the road where you can enjoy the full view of the falls and to take photographs. It is dangerous to step into the water and follow the instructions of guides

Recently visited kochi on a scientific trip. Started from Kolkata to Kochi via madras, spice jet flight. Had the opportunity to occupy a window seat and was blessed to have witnessed a lovely cloud and sunshine tango.....
Landing at kochi and travelling for two and half hours with constant rain and an unfavourable road condition was not exactly great. Stayed at Lords resort, supposedly one of the best places, but the people very politely excused them for not having any food at 1.30am.... Can't blame them.... Everybody isn't travelling!
Next morning, started at 4am and after another 2hours bumpy ride reached the athirapally falls. Politely went in despite the guards telling that it opens at 8am....and the superintendent and the falls were dangerous...couldnt figure out which was more.
While you drive to this place,the last 20km is through hilly terrain and jungles...mostly large bamboo trees. Inside the premises you have a upper view of the falls and a lower one.... Since I didn't have time for both, I chose the lower one. In Monsoon be careful of the terrain,its slippery. Reaching down was not possible since the river is in full flow, almost inundation it's banks. But, you get a great sight of the roaring falls, gorging down in all its might, not like a gentle lady but a possessed lover, looking to wash you away with its sight and sheer force...
Was trying to upload a few snaps but apparently this site doesn't allow good pics to be uploaded....
while returning you can visit the Vazhani Dam, another picturesque place...quiet and tranquil.....
