Thirparappu Waterfalls, Kanyakumari District

#3 of 13 in Parks in Kanyakumari District
Watch the swelling river thunder over Thirparappu Waterfalls, descending 50 ft (15 m) to the pools below. With a river bed of solid rock, the falls stretch 300 ft (91 m) across; low waters give you the chance to see rocky pools. Take the opportunity to bathe and cool off in the pools below the falls, though prepare for a busy atmosphere (earlier hours tend to have fewer crowds). Note that the site has nothing in the way of food or changing facilities; plan accordingly. Thirparappu Waterfalls is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Kanyakumari District Edition.

  • It's a nature friendly place. The water here is pure and refreshing. There is facility to bath in the falls. There are separate platforms for male and female. There is an ecological park beside this falls. A walk through this can refresh your mind and body. The walkway is fully covered with green tress. It's a real beauty to see. Fall will be at its best on Monsoon season. Avoid visit at summer season because of lack of water.
  • Very nice small sized waterfalls.. place is neat and clean... Parking is good.. rest room and storage facilities are poor... Water is clean and chill... Not very crowded.. can have some good time with family... Place is relatively safe....
