Simians at Athirapally Falls

Athirapalli Falls are situated on the Chalakudi River in Trissur district in Kerala located approximately 170 Kms from Coimbatore and around 30 Km from Chalakudi town.The falls originates in the Western Ghats..Many endangered and endemic species of flora and fauna are found in the forests of the Athirapilly-Vazhachal area. There are plenty of monkeys here which move freely amongst humans and they beg for food & drink which humans oblige. The monkeys are bold and try and snatch food from visitors. More pics will follow in the next post.

  3. Eventually you moved out of temples. By the way I guess there will be other idyllic pics of Athirapalli that you may want to post. The biggest intrusion , certainly human beings!!!
