Attukal falls – A multistep waterfall in a valley

The deviation to this falls is about 7-8km from Munnar on
Munnar-Kochi road at Pallivasal village. As you drive down the valley on the narrow
road, it is hard to miss the falls on the other side of the valley. This view of
the falls cannot be seen when you reach the base of the valley. Hence it makes
sense to stop for a while and enjoy the falls. It is normal for this area to be
covered by mist in Monsoon so ensure that you stop if the view is clear.
The road from main road to the base of the valley is about 2
km through a series of switchbacks. The road as mentioned is very narrow with
sharp hairpin bends. At one of those turns, I had to reverse my car to turn
fully!!

When you reach the bridge over the river, look at the places
where you can park your vehicle. There isn’t much space on either side of the
bridge. A small coffee shop is situated at the side of the falls. It is a good
experience to enjoy the falls with a sip of tea or coffee.
