According to sources with heavy rains pounding Kerala and water levels of water bodies rising, the Athirappilly waterfall, a tourist hotspot in Athirappilly, Thrissur district, has been closed for tourism. According to reports, there was a sudden surge in the waterfall on Tuesday, leading to a ban on tourist entry to the spot.



Meanwhile the tourism at Athirappilly-Vazhachal was also shut down and the route through Athirappilly and Malackappara were closed for vehicles and the tourists are also not allowed entry at the Charppa waterfalls, which is close to Athirappilly. As per reports the forest department has decided to have these restrictions in place until the strength of water comes down.

Earlier tourism at Athirappilly waterfalls experienced a temporary low after fake images of the waterfalls swelling to dangerous proportions were circulated.  Furthermore the monsoon has claimed 90 lives in the state so far and 27,000 people have sought shelter in relief camps since the onset of the south west monsoon and the state cabinet, which convened on July 18, decided to provide Rs 1,000 as a one-time aide to families put up in the relief camps. Presently rescue and relief teams have been deployed in both Idukki and Ernakulam districts to take over in the event of the shutters of the dam being opened.
