The area surrounding the falls is always misty and moist. It is primarily due to the fact that the falls are located quite close to the actual highway. Tourists must take care of their cameras as they get closer to the falls since there is a lot of water flying around from the fall during monsoons. Best time for visiting the falls is during monsoons and early winter. As the river dries up during the summer, the falls become barren. Tourists visiting between July and November can find the water flowing from the Charpa falls, However, as the winter progresses, the volume of water lessens.
The area is well maintained by the Kerala Govt. as they recognize it as a major tourist spot. Also, various hawkers and small shops are open in the vicinity so tourists can also enjoy little beverages and snacks after spending time at the Charpa Falls.
