HolidayIQ Reviewer Sv Sundar shares, “Amazing views with best surroundings This waterfall is located in Thrissur district, Kerala. The waterfall is caused by the sudden drop of the Chalakkkudy river over a 100 feet. The best part is that one can see where the river is flowing and cascading over the cliff. Also a path descends to the bottom of the waterfall. When viewed from here as well as from above its a sight to behold. Aptly named Indian Niagara.” Read Full Review


HolidayIQ Reviewer Joji Joseph says, “Athirappilly Falls - through trails and slippery paths Situated 1000 ft above sea level on the Chalakudy River and falling from a height of 80 feet, this is one of the largest waterfalls in the state. It's not the waterfall which attracts us but the scenic combination of forests and little streams surrounding the waterfall are also to be looked out for. Read Full Review


HolidayIQ Reviewer Karthikc Chandu shares, “Land of Misty Adventure The falls has a viewing area and further up, a spot where you can reach the top of the falls to have a soak. The viewing area gives you a phenomenal view of the falls with the gush of water. If you would like to reach the top of the falls, it's probably another 10 minute drive. From the road, it is quite a walk to the spot. The pathway has interlocking bricks all the way up to a point, beyond which you will have to walk through an area of semi smooth rocks. It is best to have a shoe or footwear with good soles as you may feel some level of slipperiness. We had a good time soaking our legs in the water.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Kavita Sahgal says, “Lost in the beautiful surrounding, I ignored the fact that I had to climb down 2500 odd stairs to reach any closer to our destination. The entire route to reach the bridge is lush green and clean. With less tourist around, I was actually feeling as I am a character from a Jungle Book!! Once we crossed a considerable amount of steps, we reached the hanging Bamboo and iron bridge over a sparkling waterfall in which few villagers were taking dip. The view was so beautiful that we couldn't resist the urge of swimming in the water. The experience can't be expressed in words.Read Full Review


HolidayIQ Reviewer Rohit Goswami adds, “Joy of being next to nature and overcoming fear of unknown. It was my best ever visit to be amidst nature for around six hours. calmness, serenity, peace, relaxing sound of water streams along with adventure of walking down 3000 stepsRead Full Review


HolidayIQ Reviewer Yagnadat Reddy adds, “Wonder of Mother Earth! Living root bridge is located in Nongriat Village, a one hour trek from Tyrna village which a 45 minute drive from Cherrapunjee. The trek is properly laid out with steps leading down to the base of the valley where the waterfalls from Cherrapunjee end to form glorious pools of water at Nongriat village. The best time to do the trek is in the morning when there is enough sunlight.” Read Full Review

There is a bit of drive stopping by against a small board indicating the falls and then a nice little trek. The view is overwhelming specially when the falls are at their full glory. Do remember to wear trek shoes as it may get very slipperyRead Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Zenobia Tamboli adds, “If you want to enjoy the sheer beauty of India's second highest falls, then go between July and September to witness it. 4 cascades collectively called Jog (literally means Falls in Kannada), these are a sight to behold in the monsoons and immediately thereafter. Lush green environment, a very cool climate, the roar of the falls, excellent KSTDC accommodation at the Sharavathi blocks right opposite the falls, the perfect combination for a short monsoon getaway.” Read Full Review


HolidayIQ Reviewer Arun Prasadh Muthusamy shares, “Awesome waterfalls. Visited here this July and one of the best waterfalls that I have seen so far. Though it was raining continuously and we were little displaced, it was a wonderful experience. I would suggest someone to go here in the middle of August to see the falls in its full glory. The place was neatly maintained with nice options to eat.” Read Full Review


HolidayIQ Reviewer kalpana patangia shares, “As we were in Jog falls during the rainy season, we had to face drizzles and wait for glimpses of the falls to be seen between drifting clouds. But the scenery was excellent. Even if we did not see all the four sections of Jog falls at the same time, we could hear the roar of water falling down.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Pratik Mohapatra shares, “Lovely and unspoilt views of gushing streams and also the Cauvery River One of the most beautiful waterfalls in India, Shivanasamudra was created when Cauvery River split itself into two and then joining after a short distance, forming a sort of River town called Shivanasamudra. ...There is boating which will excite you, as the boatmen take you to near the gushing streams and spin the boat for a couple of minutes. The place is a heaven for shutterbugs as it's very beautiful and it was also adapted for the blockbuster movie Baahubali. Don't try to swim there as the current is strong. There is also possibility of hiking for the trekkers.Read Full Review

There were shops over there. All the temples were in a 2km radius and it was different experience may be of the climate when we went there. It was not that much scenic though to say. Will be an off beat trip that's it” Read Full Review

Numerous resorts dot this river and have a lot of water sports for enjoyment. You can enjoy Coracle rides along the river and spot many beautiful birds and animals.
