Arippara Waterfalls Info

I am pretty sure that, you might be hearing about Arippara Waterfalls for the first time and that is why you googled it. It is not among the famous waterfalls in Kerala nor is it a popular tourist destination. If you want some private time with your family or friends, arippara falls is the best. Not many people would be there and you can have some quality time with your close ones. When we went there, that was in the last summer, nobody was there. We spent a whole day swimming, fishing and having fun in the water. It was awesome, it felt like the whole waterfall area was ours and we enjoyed to the maximum.

Arippara waterfall is on one of the tributaries of Iruvanjipuzha, which itself is a real spectacle with crystal clear water splashing down the gulley and rocks. If you are of the adventurous type, you can trek deep into the stream and forest but have your safety gear intact before jumping in. Arippara, Anakkampoyil waterfalls is situated in Kozhikode District of Kerala. It is about 45 Kms from Kozhikode City. You can board KSRTC buses from Kozhikode to reach Anakkampoyil and a bit of walking will take you to the falls.

The best time to visit Arippara is between November-May, it is not recommended to visit the falls during monsoon because there is a danger of floods. Always be wary of the strength of the water, don’t venture out too much into the water unless you are an expert swimmer. The undercurrents can be pretty strong even during summer. If you have kids and ladies accompanying you, let them have fun in the shallows otherwise it can be dangerous. Being an expert swimmer myself, I was caught in the under currents only to be rescued by my friends.

Arippara Waterfalls in one of the unexplored waterfalls of Kerala, it not in the Tourism Map of Kerala. Arippara still remains undisturbed and unexplored waiting to be explored by adventure seekers. The cool breeze and the crystal clear waters of Arippara is waiting for you.
