Clean and safe Waterfall for families to Enjoy
Jan 2020 • Family
Ideal time to visit the waterfall is till Jan mid. Beyond this the amount of water flowing reduces and by Feb hardly any water.

It will be awesome if you can visit in Rainy season or just after Rainy season.

The best part of the waterfall is that it is ideal for families with young childrens. The place is very clean and they charge and entry fee of only ten rupee.

There is a top deck which is very flat and this space is ideal for children under 15 to enjoy fall but only under the supervision of an elderly.

So what are you waiting for... Let's pack and gooo...

Good waterfall in the outskirts of Kochi that is easily accessible

Unlike other waterfalls, you dont need to travel inside forest area or remote locations to reach Areekkal. It is very near (within 7-8km) to the main road that connects Kochi to Munnar (Via Kolenchery, Muvattupuzha) and not a crowded location. It is safe to get into the water too

Nice One 👍 !!!

It was a wonderful experience to explore this place. Though it was an interior place to reach from main city and has less development in terms of amenities around, you will enjoy this beautiful waterfall. Basically the fall is seasonal specially in monsoon. One day outdoor activity is preferred specially with family and kids. Mentioning some pros and cons about the area which may helpful for your trip :

Pros :

1. Scenic waterfall and larger area. You can enter into waterfall at bottom area safely and have enough enjoyment.
2. Close to main city/town. Say, 5 km from highway.
3. Not much crowded like other places.

Cons :

1. No shops and amenities nearby. It is basically a local sight seeing area which govt recently started promoting.
2. Limited public transport facilities. You may have to use bike / car.
3. Entry fee of Rs.10 per person. Even though it is small amount, it is unfair since there is not much development in area including no parking facilities.

However its good to see this place. Pics will say more. Have a nice and safe trip !!!!

Areekkal Waterfalls is super to go at this time of year. Plenty of water to play. It's like a real swimming pool in it's main area. It's totally safe as it doesn't have much depth. Dress changing facilities are available too.. A rural area... Calm and quiet.. enjoyable

nice waterfall with safe bathing place
Jan 2018 • Family
The place is about 40 kms from the kochin international airport.The journey will take around 2 hours and the place will be few people if you go on a weekday.
the water fall can be reach with a walking path about 500 meters after the ticketing countre.if you have courrage you can walk up to the base of the water fall.

if you have time you can have a safe bath also.beware of the monkeys around as they use to jump at you even you carries a water bottle.

Weekend rides...
Mar 2017 • Friends
Beautiful place even in the summer heat. If you are looking for a good weekend, get a relaxed ride in your bike... pack up your cam... and enjoy the photo shoot. If you want more enjoyment then wait for the rain to come and make you crazy....!
