Now, its time for roaring water! After seeing all the beaches with its serene and calm water, if you are looking for something more exciting, Kanyakumari will  not disappoint you. From god gifted waterfalls to human-made dams, be ready to soak yourself and your memory with this wonders.

  • Thiruparrapu Waterfalls

    Seeing the 300 feet long waterfall is a treat in itself but standing under the cascading water that falls from a height of 50 feet and feeling each and every drop trickling down your skin is an experience that is totally unique to Thiruparrapu waterfall. The 45 km distance that you have to bear to reach this waterfall from Nagercoil will seem all shortened as you realise the beauty of this place. A swimming pool has also been recently constructed and if you are bringing your kids along with you, they will thank you for taking them to this pool, not to mention the waterfall. Take home a splashing memory!
  • Ullakaarvi

    This place calls for the adventurous streak in you. So, brace up and bring it on. An hour’s trek through a forested area, 17 km from Nagercoil, will take you to the waterfall. The route is dotted with rocks and floras but this will start enchanting you even before you reach the waterfall. Think of it as a treasure hunt as, when you see the water gushing down from the hills you will feel as if crystals and pearls and every precious white thing are falling down. When the day is clear enough, you will see two waterfalls, one high above and the other a lower one. Out of these two, the lower one is perfect some silent moments beneath the fall and afterwards a nice picnic to end the day in the most memorable way.
  • Pechiparai Reservoir

    Formed by the construction of the Pechiparai Dam, this reservoir is surrounded by the greenery of the Western Ghats. The sheer beauty of this place is in the calmness of the still water and the serenity provided by the woods nearby. Opt for the boating facilities available in this dam and you won’t even realise the time as you surrender yourself to the tranquillity of nature.

Kanyakumari’s amazing adventure never seem to end. From temples to waterfalls and dams to beaches, you will find no reason not to visit this town and it will have every reason to beckon you to it.
