Marottichal is 15 Kms away from Thrissur Town, Kerala. A beautiful place which is still unexplored by eco-tourism. A place for trecking through forest and two waterfalls are the main attractions, Olakkayam and Ilanjippara. There is not even a sign board other than a small board fixed by forest department. So identifying the entrance of Marottichal Kuthu is bit hard. Two wheelers and other vehicles have to park on road side.
Slightly less explored compared to the other waterfalls in Thrissur, is these two nibbling waterfalls of Marottichal and Ilanjippara which still retains the virgin beauty. This gorgeous waterfalls of Marottichal and Ilanjippara is situated about 22 kms away from Thrissur. To spend some of your tranquil moments amidst the rustic nature quite away from the hubbubs of city life, you are most welcome to these two nearby waterfalls. You would be awestruck by the breathtaking beauty of these nearby dense forests, where you can swim and bathe in these chilled waters. Here is the beauty of nature at its best with rich abundance of flora and fauna. Ilanjippara still retains its virgin beauty.
Best period- The best time to visit is just after the monsoon.
