Marottichal Waterfalls, Thrissur Overview

Home to two beautiful waterfalls namely Olakkayam and Ilanjippara, the serene and exquisite Marottichal Waterfalls is a stunning place which is located 22 km away from the town of Thrissur. The Olakkayam and Ilanjippara Waterfalls not being explored so much till date have made them one of the finest spots for spending some time alone surrounded by nature away from the noise and the monotonous routine of the city life. You can swim and bathe in the middle of a green environment and get a refreshing as well as relaxed feeling after an adventurous trek. After walking for about 4 km from Olakkayam Waterfall, one comes across the Ilanjippara Waterfall which still showcases its virgin beauty with the site offering a tranquil escape.

The place is full of flora and fauna which also offers some breathtaking views of the dense forest. From both these waterfalls, one gets to witness the beauty of nature around at its best with the waters falling from the cluster of rocks into the gorge below. A herd of elephants comes down to the Ilanjippara Waterfall in the summer season which is why it is advisable to go there in groups to avoid any dangerous mishap. The presence of the waterfall inside the forest gives it a surreal view. Here, one can take a 4-hour trek and reach the top of the hill with numerous streams of water on the way there. At the top end, there is a tall waterfall at about 2 km walking distance from the Marottichal bus stop. A refreshing place, these waterfalls are a must-visit for every nature lover.
