The power of rushing water falling into a near abyss is always memorable. You'll experience the thrilling beauty first hand, upon your guide driving you from the port to the falls. Thereafter, you'll enjoy a traditional Indian lunch.
While the west-flowing water from the Chalakudy River falls 80 feet long, words to describe the energy fall incredibly short. Even so, your English-speaking guide will bring you to the Athirapally waterfalls, which are based at the entrance of the Sholayar Ranges. These rock formations near the town of Chalakudy offer wonderful views of the lush Sholayar Hills, and of course the waterfalls.
Once you've embraced the beauty of this natural phenomenon (and taken a number of photos), you'll be escorted to a tasty traditional Indian restaurant for lunch prior to returning to port. Reserve this Cochin tour to simply be amazed.
