Vazhvanthol Waterfalls Near Trivandrum City

For those, who are looking for an adventurous trekking spot near Trivandrum city, Vazhvanthol Waterfalls is a good choice. Unlike most tourist spots in Thiruvananthapuram, Vazhvanthol is not popular yet and you can expect enough privacy there. Anyone who does not want to face a crowd in an adventurous trekking, I strongly recommend this place. One day trip to Vazhvanthol waterfalls through the reserve forest is more than enough to refresh your mind.

How to Reach Vazhvanthol Waterfalls
If you are searching for a tourist location with waterfalls very near to Trivandrum city, visit to Vazhvanthol is a must. It is nearly 45 KM journey from the heart of Trivandrum city to reach there.
Photos of Vazhvanthol Waterfalls
From Trivandrum central, you must go to Nedumangad and from there you must head to Vithura. Then take Bonacaud route till you reach Kanithadam. There is a forest check post at Kanithadam. You must pay entry fee at check post to get permission to enter the forest area. Exact fee for each person and vehicle is displayed at the counter.
Kanithadam Check post
Once you obtain permission from the check post, you can drive for nearly one Kilometer and from there you must start walking. The distance between Kanithadam check post and Vazhvanthol waterfalls is 2.2 KM.

Nearest Railway Station and Airport
Trivandrum Central is the nearest railway station and Thiruvananthapuram International Air port is the nearest airport.

Our Trip Experience

Before picking Vazhvanthol, we spent enough time to search for best wild life areas and waterfalls in Thiruvananthapuram. After considering the huge crowd, we strike out popular spots and chose the less explored Vazhvanthol waterfalls.

We were a team of 15 members lead by Vino and Siju George Kureekkattu, who are experienced wild life tourists, started our journey from Trivandrum central at 11:30 AM.

We reached Kanithadam check post with in 90 minutes travel. We knew, it was a forest area and no shops and hotels available. So we had food and water as parcel. After spending a little time with local tribal people and visiting their worship place, we continued our walking through jungle to Vazhvanthol waterfalls.
As we expected the route is adventurous and took more time to cover 2.2 KM than usual.

Advice
  • Do not forget to bring Food and Water since there is no shops available

  • Do not carry plastic bags

  • Do not disturb wildlife
