Totally Alone but happy bcz the view killed my stress worms at once. The water was clean ,clear and chilled. Unlike other falls , this one has water flowing down like rain all around with one main fall. It is a must visit spot (quite uncommon among those who visit Rishikesh).Spent more than an hour there enjoying the view and splashes of water on my face and got ready for the next destination.Calmed and cool by soul and mind, i walked down this wet, rugged terrain and reached my ride but the sweet smell of tea from a roadside tea shop pulled me towards it and i had to order a tea with locally made bakery biscuits.
I was refreshed , excited and energised by the feeling of being there. Now to start my exploration i rented a Honda Activa scooter(Rs 400/day) . With fuel filled worth Rs 250 from a local petrol station , my first stop was a waterfall called PATNA FALL . I rode along river GANGA to reach this spot where i parked the scooter and set on a hike to reach to this waterfall . On the way up this hill i saw 40-50 people coming down and i thought the spot will be filled with hundreds of people. Kept hiking (took around 30 minutes to reach up) and to my surprise i was there just with a chaiwala who owns a small tea shop near the waterfall.
The water descending from mountains started to splatter on and tickle our skin. We were bowled over by the mystical scenery like view, which left us spellbound. All we did in that moment was stand still, admiring the beauty of the place, feeling the breeze, and resting our brain cells.I could not wait and in the very next moment I just popped out my camera and seized the moment forever with me. (Although no photograph can do justice to what a treat it was for my eyes to witness the magnificence of the waterfalls)
