It was around 2 P.M. and no one was in hurry to go back. So we planned to go to Chunchi waterfalls which is on our way back. It was some 20 mins drive and upon reaching the falls one has to walk for about 25 mins to reach the falls. Take water bottles with you as you can’t find any shops on your way. We didn’t know this fact and all our throats were dry. So, ya after reaching we enjoyed the view for a while and started clicking pics.It was evening and everyone was hungry as we didn’t eat anything in afternoon. Not only that but also everyone was tired and dehydrated after all those swimming, walking nearly 25 mins in a hot day. Later after reaching near the parking we found a small shop where we drank water and bought some biscuits, few of them smoked too.
