"Gladly sell kept by tourism and forest dept in a joint effort. There is a user fee. Vazhachal is more of rapids than a fall. But offers many scenic vistas. Shortly after, the river plunges down and that is called athirapalli falls. The access is from same entry. You will have to trek downhill to the bottom level to see it in full glory. While the trek route is laned with seats n rails, the return uphill is a task for many of us who are not accustomed to inclines It's a must visit in central Kerala and attract more regional crowd than visitors from North or foreigners "

"A very good place. A wonderful waterfalls. Its not actually a big waterfall from height. But it is like a slanting falls. Looks great when there is lot of water. Clean place with necessary facilities and there is a ticket cost as well."
