Around 0.5 km from the waterfall stands the Bhagsunath Temple. The waterfall is revered by devotees who throng the temple. Even though the fall is easily reachable by taxis or autos, I decided to trek to it so that I can enjoy the serene surroundings. It took me around 6 to 8 hours to explore the region.
This picturesque waterfall is over the Sharavathi Roiver in the Shimpga District. This fall originates from the meeting point of four cascades known as Raja, Rani, Rover and Rocket.

There are also a number of points from where the view of the lush greenery everywhere is visible. The best out of all is the Watkins Point. Other than this, you can also do some adventurous hiking downslope and take a plunge into the cool waters of the fall. The Swarnavati Riverbank and the Sharavathi Valley are also breathtaking.

Once there took place a very sad incident. There was a woman here named LiKai who was married to a very nice man who was a porter and after a few months of marriage she also gave birth to a beautiful daughter. Sadly after a few days, her husband died while carrying iron to Sylhet. She was left all alone without any support and a little girl to feed along with herself. Finding no other option she also took up the job of a porter. Since she was having no time at all to look after her daughter she was remarried. After this also she had no time to look after her husband or her daughter. Her husband grew angry and one day out of frustration he killed the little girl and cooked her as a meal. When LiKai was back home she could not see her daughter but instead of looking for her she decided to have the meal which look very good. After she had finished and was going to take a betel leaf, she found a severed little finger and soon understood what had happened. She lost her senses immediately and went mad. She kept on running and at the end jumped in this waterfall. After this the local people named it NohKaLiKai in which Noh means jump of, Ka is the term used for Meghalayan women and LiKai is the name. So, it means Jump of KaLiKai. This is at present a popular tourist attraction where you will find beautiful sceneries. The force of the waterfalls is maximum during the summers and monsoon and least during the winters.

This is a trek which I undertook last year. The trek falls under the simple category and can be completed in half a day. I visit Badrinath every four years due to religious reasons. I had always heard about this place but never been there. This time I decided to go for it. Vasudhara Falls is a waterfall situated near Badrinath, in Uttarakhand, India. Total distance from Badrinath to Vasudhara is 9 km. The first 3 kilometers of badrinath to mana village is drivable road. Next 6 km is walkable trek from Mana village to Vasudhara waterfall. However I travelled from Badrinath itself on foot. Being the local of that area I am familiar with the language and people. Because of which the trek took me 15 Km. However I enjoyed the fullest.I took the back road from Badrinath to reach Vyas Guda. The priest over there knew my father and grand father really well, hence we received a very warm welcome. We had tea at the shop named "Bharat ki akhri chai ki dukan". And its literally the last shop hence pack some water and food for the trek. From there we proceeded towards Bheem Pul. This is a stone bridge which according to the scriptures was created by Bhima in order to help Pandavas cross the mighty Saraswati river. On the way you can actually see the Saraswati river merging into Alaknanda and disappearing all together. A contrast in the waters of the two rivers is clearly visible. Bheem Pul also has some shops near by for refreshments post which you will not find anything.From here we proceeded towards Vasudhara. It's a mountainous terrain hence trekking shoes are highly recommended. The view during the trek is ecstatic. The entire mountain range seems to come alive. Sometimes its misty, sometimes its sunny. The nature plays these little games to make the experience all the more beautiful. My cousin being a student of Ayurveda kept on telling me about the various medicinal plants which could be seen on the way. We had to cross two glaciers in order to reach Vasudhara. Crossing the glacier in trekking shoes was a fearful experience. The trek does leave you tired towards the end and you keep on wondering when will I see the falls. But just like all good things take their own sweet time to happen, you will be mesmerized by the beauty of the falls. The falls had a thick glacier beneath it which prevented us from going nearer but what we saw was breathtaking. Vasudhara falls from a height if 145 meters but the strong winds and low temperatures cause the water to fall down as droplets. There is a interesting legend about the waterfall which says that if you are not pure at heart, the water will not fall on you. After a good view and a lot of pictures, we returned back to Badrinath. The enchanting falls still make us smile when we think about their beauty.

Our first stop was at the Cheeyappara waterfall which cascades down in seven steps making it a pretty sight. The sad part, we tourists. Plastic bottles and snack wrappers had been dumped by some and it was an ugly sight at the bottom of the falls. I really don't understand why we cannot do a simple thing -- keep our surroundings clean! Come to think about it, it actually tells about the person we actually are -- bitter truth!

The men in khaki were there to control the crowd and the traffic. After a continuous drive of 2 days, we could not control ourselves from getting drenched in the cold water of the waterfall.We enjoyed in the waterfall for some time , and then had hot tea and maggi to satisfy our hunger. The waterfall was pretty crowded as it is reachable for people staying in north Karnataka, north Goa , Kolhapur , Konkan Region of Maharashtra.We started heading towards our home post having food in Amboli Falls.
