Vazhachal is also a beautiful waterfall near to athirapilly waterfalls. Those who are visiting Athirapilly waterfalls should also visit Vazhachal which 1 or 2 kilometers away from it. Try to visit Thumboormozhi which is in the way to Athirapilly waterfalls. Thumboormozhi is a beautiful river diversion scheme. I request Sanoop to add a small details about these two places also.
