Chinnakalar falls is a waterfall located 26 kilometers east of the Valparai Hill Station. It receives the second greatest amount of rainfall in the country and for that reason is known as the Cherrapunnji of South India. Surrounded by dense greenery on all sides, the ambience that Chinnakalar presents is one of peace.
A hanging bridge has been constructed over the falls which makes the trip all the more adventurous. The falls have been known to sound like a roaring lion. Chinnakalar is always shrouded by cloud and mist, mostly because of the heavy rainfall it receives throughout the year. Travelling on the road to Chinnakalar is one of the most rewarding experiences one can get while being in Valparai.
