Cheeyappara waterfalls in landslide area

27 June 2015

If you continue one km further from Valara falls towards Kochi, you will see Cheeyappara waterfalls falling majestically next to the road. It appears all of a sudden with a pleasant surprise.



Cheeyappara waterfalls though looks beautiful has a sad event associated with it. On August 6th 2013, a landslide that occurred led to the killing of six people. When we visited, the area looked clam with only trace of landslide being the warning boards erected by the authorities.

Oh. So many waterfalls. I guess you have posted 7 waterfalls in one month. Good decision from you to visit these waterfalls in June. I waited for more rains and am left cursing my decision.
