If you're visiting Munnar, the Attukal Waterfall is a nice place to visit. It is a place where you can take some good pictures. The waterfall offers good opportunities for trekking too. But you need to be very careful as it can be very slippery near the falls.

  • Not very crowded.
  • Very clean and pure water.



  • This Waterfall is beautiful but extremely dangerous.
  • The approach road is broken and in a bad condition.
  • Might dry up during summer season.

Detailed Info

One of nature’s most mesmerizing creations, the Attukal Waterfalls in Munnar are truly spectacular. It is one of the most attractive scenes that you can look at during your stay at Munnar. Situated in the middle of the forest, the place is ideal for long trekking and hiking. Though it is difficult to reach there, one should never miss this place when you visit Munnar.

You can approach the Attukal waterfalls through a narrow wooden bridge. The walk up to the waterfalls is a treat in itself. Towering hills wrapped in green and blooming with seasonal flowers fill the horizon. If the water level is low. you can walk up to the rocks and splash around in the water. You can also opt for a 3 km walk from the main road or take your vehicle right up to the waterfall.

Besides its natural splendor, the site is also ideal for trekking and hiking. When the backdrop is a mesmerizing waterfall and fog-wrapped hills, you are compelled to take pictures. Do not forget to carry your camera! You can visit the place to behold the splendid view of the waterfall and the dense jungle throughout the year, but it is best to visit the place immediately after the monsoon season since the waterfall cascades at its full glory during this time. The nearest railway station is at Aluva which is at a distance of 108 kms.
