At a distance of 50 Kms from Kanyakumari, 51 Kms from Trivandrum & 704 Kms from Chennai (about 12 kms from Trivandrum – Kanyakumari freeway, 13 kms from Pechiparai Dam), the Kodayar makes its descend at Thiruparappu and types this glorious waterfall.
The river mattress is rocky and about 300 toes in size. The water falls from a top of practically 50 toes and the water flows for about seven months in a yr. The entire mattress above the falls is one rocky mass which extends as much as a distance of about quarter of a kilometer upstream the place the well-known Thirparappu weir has been constructed for supplying water to the paddy fields. A swimming pool has been constructed for youngsters over right here. It is a protected place for swimming.
Mahadeva Temple devoted to Siva enclosed by robust fortification could be very near the waterfalls and it is one of many necessary Siva temples in Kanyakumari district.
This waterfall has good highway entry and doesn’t demand any trekking.
