Day 1

A waterfall cannot be silent, just as the wisdom! When they speak, the voice of power speaks!

While people are struggling unhappily in the cities against the cruel authorities, a waterfall happily and cheerfully flows in the nature; there is happiness only if there is freedom!

Government made no compromise with expenditure to make the 2nd highest waterfall of odisha and 12th of India(801 ft). As soon as we entered the area, we started  realise that why government spend such a huge money arround 42 lacks on a waterfall. Atmospheric beauty was just breathtaking and soon it reminded us the sentence "Nature always wears the colors of the spirit."
As, I love the sounds and the power of pounding water, whether it is the waves or a waterfall,Without wasting time we reached to waterfall, removes our clothes and stand under the mighty refreshing water spout. Celebration came on after a long 500km bike riding from Kolkata to Khandahar waterfalls, tons of water worked like a medicine,took all the body pain of our adventure with every splash of its.
