About Lakkam Water Falls

99%
voted as clean

Lakkam Waterfalls is situated in Lakkam, nearby Vagavurai Estate, on the way to Marayoor from Munnar. It is situated amidst wilderness and it is about a 5 minute drive from Munnar- Marayoor road.

The adjoining Vagavurai valley adds up the beauty of Lakkam Waterfalls making it a perfect place for photography. Vagavurai valley is so named due to the abundance of ‘Vaga’ trees. When the trees are in full bloom the whole of Vagavurai valley is seen covered in bright red.

"Enjoyed a lot but little time" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 6 days ago
Nice waterfall opens after 8 am. And ticket price is Rs. 20 and at morning time it might be very difficult to take shower as it is very chill. Time is limited there. We can enjoy a lot. Place is awesome and good looking. Place is too slippery and we are not allowed to go to top of falls.

"Chill with the chill water"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Water is so chilled, this is on the way to Munnar from Tamil Nadu, took morning bath and it was like meditation time. Enjoyed a lot. Tea, coffee shops available to drink and purchase too. Do not forget to enjoy black tea or lemon tea on nearby shops. You can enjoy bread-omelette too.

"This waterfall is a visual treat"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Sep 8, 2015
Hardly five minutes drive from the Munnar town towards Marayoor will take you to the closest waterfall, Lakkam waterfalls. The waterfall coming from Eravikulam is surrounded by Vaga trees, a tree with green leaves and dark colored flowers. The stream creates lots of cascades but most are inaccessible. The Lakkam Waterfall is a visual treat and it makes this destination, one of the most preferable spot for visiting when coming to Munnar. The flow of the water will be less in summer and during our last visit, the water flow was heavy due to the pre-monsoon rains.

"Must visit place"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jan 12, 2015
Worth the extra distance which one has to travel. But we never felt bad after reaching the location since it had nice atmosphere and even we could take bath in falls. But beware of rocks/stones.

"Have a guide advice"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Nov 21, 2014
A checkout place for sure, trekking through the dense forest with a guide is advised. Don't think hard about wild animals. You may spot them often over there.

"The water gushes in, at a roaring speed"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Aug 22, 2014
This is on the way to Marayoor. Big, noisy water falls. If the water flow is good, it looks excellent. The water gushes in, at a roaring speed. You can have a nice bath here.

I took bath in this fall with my family. Water was too cold but we enjoyed the bath. My son was not coming out from it, even we asked him many times. We all enjoyed too much.

"Beautiful waterfall"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Apr 21, 2014
Lakkam is quite a scenic waterfall. Surprisingly the water is very clear you can certainly enjoy in this clear water. Greenery around the waterfall is very beautiful and you can spend some good time sitting at the rocks admiring the waterfall.
