Fact Check: No, This Video Is NOT Of Athirapilly Waterfalls In Kerala; Here’s The Truth

A video of a waterfall is doing rounds on social media with a claim that it is of Athirapilly waterfalls in Chalakudi near Thrissur, Kerala.

Here’s the link to the above post. More posts can be seen here, here, here, here and here.


NewsMobile fact-checked the viral video and found the claim to be false.

We extracted keyframes of the video through InVid tool and put them through Reverse Image Search. We found that the same video was uploaded by many users and they identified it as Jog Falls in Karnataka.

The same video was uploaded on YouTube in November 2019.

Taking a cue from the above information, we looked for Jog falls and found some pictures from the location on Google. The pictures were very similar to the waterfall in the video.

We then checked Jog Falls on Google Earth and found two street views that were similar to the video. When we compared those street views to the screen grabs from the video, we found some similarities like the signboard, similar railings.

You can see the pictures of Athirapally waterfalls here.

Earlier in 2020, NewsMobile debunked the same video, where it was being shared as Bhedaghat falls in Madhya Pradesh.
