Cheeyappara Waterfalls on Kochi - Munnar highway

The cheeyappara waterfalls on the Kochi - Munnar highway between Neriamangalam and Adimali is a visual treat to all the tourists heading Munnar.

Flowing down a rocky slope in 7 step cascades this waterfalls will look best during and after monsoon months (Jun - Sep). You can walk under the falls and get wet only if the conditions permit, but its still a long way to Munnar and there are no changing rooms around.



From cheeyapara you start to feel the hills and forest towards Munnar and the temperature start to fall as you go up. The place is also famous for landslides during monsoons, one such incident took life of 3 in 2013. It is advised to verify the weather reports and alerts before you start.

  1. You are right! This fall is the famous due to its landslides, swimming and mounts climbing. There are a lot of mountains to near the cheeyappara waterfalls. I personally visit there before diamond head volcano tour with my wife. This falls is best to enjoy the holidays. We have really enjoyed there and we stayed 2 weeks. The Clouds Valley Leisure Hotel is the nearest hotel to stay there. The services are good and the rooms are well decorated. It provides many types of delicious foods. I want to go again there with my family.
