We decided to start our trip at 6:00 AM, but due to some personal reasons we started our trip at 7:30 AM towards Tikarapada. We filled the petrol in sooty at BADAKERA and purchased some extra fuel and some things to eat because after BADKERA there is only jungle road, you cant find any shop.

So i drive towards Tikarapada. After approximately 1 hour we reached at Pampasar forest office. We took permission letter from the office to enter in to the wildlife century.

You have to take a another permission letter from the same office where we took permission for entering in to Tikarapad. Here you can see a beautiful waterfall inside the jungle. We reached here at 9:45 Am. The waterfall having a extraordinary view locally called as BhimaDhara Falls.

When the trip is going good, a twist happened. Bich raste main ghane jungle m humara petrol khatam ho gaya. I know its funny but its true. By the help of people some how we arranged petrol and get out of there. Its really a most unforgettable and unpredictable experience i had ever. We back to home at 4:00 PM.

At the end i only want to say dont go there alone. This is a good place but not safe place. Its my 1st story.so, if there is any mistake, just forgive.
