The Beautiful Chitrakoot Falls, Chhattisgarh

After spending some extremely thrilling moments in the Wildlife Sanctuary, we reached the Chitrakoot falls in Chhattisgarh, which was quite well-known for being one of the most famous tourist destinations in Central India. The complete area was covered by green trees and plants, which were quite old and created a good scenic view. The Chitrakoot falls was also known as the Niagara Falls of India. We learnt that during the rainy season, the river swelled up and gave a completely different appearance to the Chitrakoot Falls. It had a height of around 29 meters and the water was quite deep as well. The local residents informed us that the breadth of the water falls kept on increasing and decreasing throughout the year based on the seasons and rains. We gathered that during summers, the water level decreases to a great extent and the bank of the river is filled with silts. The water is not able to carry any silt and thus, looks quite different due to change in its colour.

The Chitrakoot falls was located on a river known as Indravati near the Jagdalpur area in the Bastar District at a distance of around 40 kilometres from the district town. Let me also inform you that one can easily take any mode of transportation for reaching the destination. I, along with my friends, decided to rest on some stones in order to enjoy the marvellous beauty of the place in the best way. Apart from many Indians, we spotted many foreigners, which made us realize the immense popularity of the place worldwide. The whole area was surrounded by dense forests and I captured some completely amazing pictures. These photos help me to have a clear view of the falls even today.

The famous Chitrakoot falls, Chhattisgarh was a place that I would not easily forget. All of us agreed to the fact that it was one of the most heavenly places in India. None of us could remember a view as beautiful as the scene of the falls basking in the rays of the sun. Though we had to leave the place as we had more places to cover, all of us vowed to return there.
