Chitrakote Waterfalls, Chhattisgarh

The Chitrakoot or Chitrakote waterfalls (Hindi: चित्रकोट जलप्रपात) is a natural waterfall on the Indravati River. It is located to the west side of Jagdalpur, in Bastar district in the Indian state of Chhattisgarh. This place is just 38 kilometers away from Jagdalpur town.

The height of this fall is about 95 ft or 29 meters. It is known as the widest fall in India. Because of its width and wide-spread during the monsoon season, it looks like Niagara Falls.  And the tourists are not allowed to the downside in the monsoon.

It's so deep, but in the winter and the summertime, you can go down to the bottom of the falls. From there, you can take a small boat tour and could feel the sprinkling water drops on you. But it may be dangerous if you won't go with proper pieces of equipment.

The sunset was really beautiful from that place. We were there during the sunset time, so we had that look only, but sunrise is also beautiful from the bottom area. As per some visitors, this place looks more beautiful in the morning time.

The above two pictures were taken from the top of the falls from where the waters are dropping down.

You can see such swans there, and be careful, they might harm you. But not much dangerous, you should look both your side while walking.

We had visited this place on the 25th of January in 2015. And all these photographs are taken by the member of our club.
