athirapally falls

Athirappilly Falls often described as ‘India’s Niagara’, which stands tall at 80 feet, the water surges around big rocks and cascades down in three separate plumes. Below the falls, the river remains turbulent for about 1 kilometer and then it calms and flows smoothly. The unique 180 meters (590 ft) elevation riparian forest in the Athirappilly-Vazhachal area is the only location where all four South Indian species of hornbills — the great hornbill (the state bird of Kerala), Malabar pied hornbill, Malabar grey horn bill, and the Indian grey hornbill are found living together.
