Trip to Thirparappu waterfalls

Thirparappu waterfalls is a famous tourist spot situated in Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu.
Water comes to Thirparappu waterfalls from the Kodayar River and there are so many beautiful spots near it. We (me, Pradeep, Jineesh, and Tibin) planned a trip to Thirparappu waterfalls one week ago and started our trip in Jan-09-2011.

 There is about 55-kilometer journey to Thirparappu waterfalls from Trivandrum city and We took about one and a half hour to reach there.

 We first went to one of the resting places near the Thirparappu waterfalls and took our lunch. After lunch, we covered a little bit of area by walk and then went to the waterfalls.

Some of the photos we took:

swimming pool

Another attraction is a well-maintained swimming pool near the waterfall. The water is fresh as it flows from the waterfalls so there is no need to worry about hygiene. 

The only problem we faced was the presence of a huge crowd at its peak time.

Boating facility at Thirparappu waterfalls

There is a boating facility available for tourists. Pedal boats are available at affordable rent and tourists are allowed to travel through the river. 

It is a pleasant experience due to the spectacular scenery(thick vegetation) on both sides of the river. After spending our half-day, we returned to Trivandrum with a clean and pleasant mind.
