We decided to visit Katiki falls which was around 20 Km from Araku valley. The important thing is that there is no proper road to reach Katiki waterfall. The only way to reach this waterfall is to book Tata Sumo for around 8 Km and then trek for 1-2 Km. The roads are very dangerous and it will be scary at some points. We had to spend Rs 2000 for this ride because of no proper road and any choice. Finally reached water fall after some 1-2 Km trek from dropping point of Tata Sumo. The waterfall was not up to expectations but the journey to reach there made it a thrilling experience.
Located in the lush Araku Valley, the way to Katiki Waterfalls includes a little bit of trekking to reach. Katiki Waterfall is 50 ft high and approximately 4 kms away from Borra Caves. Surrounded by clean water and immense greenery in its vicinity, Katiki originates from the Gosthani River and cascades down in full swing.
Katiki Waterfalls The place where this waterfalls was located is called Katiki and hence the name Katiki waterfalls to it. So to reach the Katiki waterfalls we have to climb down the very steepy hill. The falls are nearly 20-30 minutes trek from stating point and the path is narrow and slippery. There is no public transport available to this place. Visitors are advised not to venture to the waterfall in their own car as the road is bumpy and not suitable for regular cars other than jeeps.
Milky white water dropping from 100 feet height forming a pool at the base where you can enjoy the simple pleasures of life – Katiki has to be the most scenic waterfall in the area. A 30-minute trek through a lush green forest will lead you to this scenic waterfall. It is 7km from Borra Caves, so you can see both on a single day.Note: Sometimes during summers, the waterfalls dry out completely.
