Chitrakote Falls

The Chitrakote Falls is a natural waterfall located to the west of Jagdalpur, in Bastar district in the Indian state of Chhattisgarh on the Indravati River. The height of the falls is about 100 Feet. It is the widest fall in India Because of its width and wide spread during the monsoon season, it is often called the Niagara Falls…
Tucked away in the interior tribal district of India’s Chhattisgarh state, the Chitrakote waterfalls are nothing short of mesmerising. The Indravati river drops a hundred feet to create what is often called India’s Niagra falls. At the lower level one can use a boat to go right up to the cascading waters and in fact a tiny temple hides at one end almost behind the cascade.
The sound of gushing water of Indravati river as it cascaded down from a height, creating a stunning vista. So invigorating is the sight that we were magnetically drawn to it during the last monsoons. The Niagara Falls of India casts its magic as the magical portion casts down like smooth, white satin leaving a unforgettable impression. It is among top tourist places in Chhattisgarh.
