For those who are coming from Tamilnadu
Even though  there is an alternative route from pollachi to Athirapally waterfalls ( pollachi - palakkad- trissur - chalakkudy - athirapally ) , beautiful route would be via valparai  ( pollachi - valparai- malakkaparai -vazhachal  - athirapally ). But the road is not much wide, some parts of the road is not in  good condition, but you will never forget the beauty of this place / route.

When ever I visit Valparai , I choose this route ( Kochi - Chalakkudy - Malakkapara - Valparai ). I had gone through this route many times, still I love to go this way to valparai  via athirapally from Kochin. There are dams, dense forests, rivers, waterfalls, very peaceful ambiance, if you have luck  can see lots of animals too :)
