From there we will next move to the Vazhachal falls. On the way between Athirappilly waterfalls and Vazhachal we have another one. Charpa falls, is a lesser known yet a place worth visit. It falls on the highway connecting Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Situated at a distance of 60 kilometres from Thrissur, it’s a worthy watch if you are there during the monsoons. It is adjacent enough to the roads for the water to come heaving onto the road when the state receives torrential rains. The falls don’t arouse awe by its height, but the course of the water surging over the huge rocks in a tempestuous, exhilarating streak, is worth watching. This fall is been part of many movies such as Dil Se, Guru, Iruvar etc.

Now we will continue our journey to Vazhachal Waterfalls. The Vazhachal Waterfall is located in the Sholayar ranges in Athirappilly. It is five km apart from the Athirappilly waterfall and 36 km away from Chalakuddy. The scenic splendor of the waterfall offers an escapade from the stressful city life. Unlike striking Athirappilly Waterfalls, the Vazhachal Fall appears more like a faster-paced river. The Vazhachal area is renowned for its upright riparian vegetation in its well – preserved circumstance that has a thousand varieties of living species inhabiting it. Filling the mind and heart with the beauty and freshness of nature, we will say bye to Sholayar ranges.
