3. Athirapally Falls – Thrissur, Kerala

I am assuming that not many people would have told you about the out-of-the-world shooting locations in Baahubali 1. So, here’s the first one in the list, the Athirapally Falls in Thrissur.
This one is known as the Niagra Falls of India. All covered in mist the Athirapally Falls is one of the prime attractions in Thrissur district.

Munnar is the closest and most renowned city to Athirapally Falls. The waterfalls touches the ground from a height of 80 feet and spans 330 feet in width. Nestled in Sholayar ranges, the waterfall area is a biodiversity rich place. The location shot to fame when Baahubali carried the Shivalinga on his shoulder in part 1.

A closer look of the popular scene reiterates the fact that it’s not Athirapally Falls alone making the complete frame. Kerala’s another waterfall Vazhachal Falls combined with Athirapally to create the picture of a massive waterfall that doesn’t even exist. Lol!! Remember VFX can generate scenes for you that even the almighty nature would find incapable of making.
