Vazhachal falls is the less famous cousin of Athirapally falls, but you should visit if you are going to Athirapally. Entry fee for both is included in the same ticket. This is more of a horizontal fall rather than vertical and has it's own beauty. For families with senior citizen, this is the one to enjoy. I was travelling with my 71 yr old mother with knee issues, she could make this one.

The place is quite near to the Athirapally falls and ticket is common for both. Well maintained and systematic and care taken to minimise plastic usage etc. all typical to the nature destinations in Kerala. One can spend some time inside, small eateries available inside. One can have the view of the sliding down the rocky terrain (rather than a typical falls). There is a barricaded walkway to help enjoy the beautiful location. Elders can also enjoy as there are not much climbing up/down required.

A perfect place for a family get away.. a place wher you could spend time away from the crowds . From my experience I felt myself in the lap of nature. Seeing green all around literally made me float away fro the hectic every day life. It was really awesome and we really had a quality family time

Very good view of waterfalls and decently maintained viewing areas. Toilet areas require more hygiene and cleanliness.

Vazhachal is a cascading falls 5 KMS upstream of Aathirappally falls. The road to Vazhachal falls from Aathirappally is well paved though it is narrow.

The entry tickets (charges applicable from April 2019, is Rs 40 for adults
Rs 150 for foreign nationals) issued by the forest department is for both Aathirappally and Vazhachal ( for those coming from Chalakudy side)

Vazhachal falls is a beautiful spot to spend time while visiting Aathirappally. The access to the falls is restricted due to safety reason . The periphery is fenced but this donot obstruct the view , one can see the falls in a good length . There will be a minimal flow during summer ( it doesn't dry up) and it will be amazing to watch this cascading fall during monsoon and post monsoon.

There is a small park for kids and a snack bar. Toilet facilities are also available.

Compared to the Athirappilly Falls, the Vazhachal Falls is a very laidback gently cascading waterfall which tumbles down the rocks in a leisurely manner. Nevertheless, it is in a very beautiful setting at the edge of the lush green Sholayar Reserve Forest with lush green trees all around and a lot of monkeys to give you company. There is a fencing along the flowing water so as to prevent people from venturing on to the slippery rocks. The falls are in full force during the monsoons.

Vazhachal is upstream on the Chalakudy River and we had to drive up another 5 km from the Athirappilly parking area along a very narrow but well paved road. The road was so narrow that we had to literally squeeze past the cars coming from the opposite direction. The forest entry charges are common for both the falls. Vazachal was less crowded than Athirappilly on the Sunday when we visited. There were some snacks and coffee shops near the falls.

Went to Vazachal falls as part of trip to Athirappily Falls. Not quite as impressive as the latter but easier to get to from the roadside.

The vazhachal falls is the right place to enjoy the beauty of the nature, waterfalls in the forest, cascading in several steps and we can go near the falls but stay behind the fence. The water flows like milk and sprinkles on us when we go near the fence and it's not advisable to try to swim in the area since the water flow is strong and the roack beneath is slippery. Nice place to spend some time with family or friends.
