About Lakkam Water Falls

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.

"An attractive location"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted May 6, 2016
14 km away from Eravikulam we reached the sight of Lakkam water falls. Even though the summer season water is sufficient. We visited on 13th April-2016. Very beautiful place with rock and water. So many tourist took bath under the falls. Kids played in the natural swimming pool. Location is very attractive.

A meager amount collected as entry fee. We liked very much. On the way to the falls both sides of the road fully packed with forest.

"Good place for nature lovers & photographers"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Apr 30, 2016
Loved this place. Entry fee is very small Rs. 20/- per head. At summer this waterfall doesn't have too much water and hence pulls less crowd. But that is advantage for peace lovers. One can take a bath as well. Bathroom and locker facilities are available. In monsoon the water level increases and it's not safe for bath anymore. Very good place for nature lovers and photographers too.

"Enjoyed a lot but little time"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Feb 4, 2016
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 Nov 4, 2015
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.
