Bhagsu Waterfall

Again on foot, we began our journey from McleoGanj main street to Bhagsu Naag waterfall. Along the way we came upon Bhagsunag Shiv Mandir, Radha Krishnan Hanuman & devi Mandir and Bhagsunag swimming pool. To reach the falls you can climb half a mountain with clearly marked pathway or the beautiful valley which outlines a river(souli Khad) that is now dried(being winter the stream was small). We decided to ditch the pathway and headed upstream on the stony riverbed to the fall. I advise to use your judgement based on weather conditions and stick to the clearly marked pathway if necessary. The clear cool waterfall was refreshing.

Jog Falls

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. The waterfall is locally also known as the Gersuppo Falls or the Jogada Gundi. The best part about these falls is that the water does not touch the rocks when it flows down and because of this the Jog Falls has been rated as the tallest un- tiered waterfall of the country. 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. The nearby attractions include the Dabbe Waterfalls, Linganamakki Dam, Tunga Anicut Dam, Thyvare Koppa Lion and the Tiger Reserve.

Elephant Falls

Located a little outside the main city of Shillong in Meghalaya, this is a beautiful two tiered waterfall. The two parts are named as the Wir Phang falls and the Wei Laplam Falls. These two flow along dingles of rock and then blend together to justify its name which is the Elephant Falls. This is no doubt a must see in the state and people not only from other places but also from the same state cannot resist repeated trips to this tranquil destination. The place is much away from the hustle and bustle of the city streets and thus very peaceful and refreshing too. The monsoons are the time when you find the Elephant Falls in its full vigor with snow white, foamy water gushing down the falls. This ckear color makes the perfect combination with the shades of greenery around. There are also a number of medicial plants and shrubs whose goodness get infused in this therapeutic waters of the Falls.

Nohkalikai Falls

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.

Dhuandhar Falls

This is the first of the top 3 places in Jabalpur worth investing your time in. “Dhuandhaar” in Hindi, means “Lightening Fast”. But in this specific context, it means a kind of haze that is formed by the force of the water plunging from huge height. The water is that of River Narmada narrowing down and then falling from the rocky surface from a height of around 100 feet ! Another highlight of this point is the fact that even though there is scarce rainfall in any year, the flow of the water is not affected, don’t know how but then this is something amazing I felt

Tirathgarh Falls

Tirathgarh Falls, also spelt as Teerathgarh Falls (when you search on Google), is a waterfall at Kanger Ghati in Bastar district in the Indian state of Chhattisgarh. It is a block type waterfall on the Kanger River, that plunges by 91 metres (299 ft) in a single drop. This waterfalls is located some 35 kms south west of a town called as Jagdalpur, which is famous for its beautiful carpentry on teak wood and other wooden handicraft like sculptures, statues and other decorative items. To reach here, I, with my wife & in-laws had hired a cab from Sunabeda ( a small township in the district of Koraput, located in the southern part of Odisha).It took some 3 to 4 hours to reach at Tirathgarh Falls. A substantial part of the route was through dense jungles on either side of the road. The surrounding rocky landscape and the fine spray of water droplets sprinkling as streams of water continuously plunged from the cliff, as high as 91 mtrs. from ground, was truly an experience. After spending nearly 2 hours, we moved on to the next waterfall.

Banjhakri Water Falls

Banjhakri falls is a remarkable touristy spot in Sikkim. There is very popular story behind this spot and its name. The word "Banjhakri" means woodland shaman, now if we separate it further "Boycott" implies primitive and "Jhakri" implies shaman. Shaman is a priest among specific people of northern Asia, viewed as one with recuperating and supernatural forces who can impact the spirits and achieve good and evil. Furthermore, it is these Shamanistic practices that are delineated by means of the dolls in this amusement park. Some of these portray customs, some recuperating ceremonies and others the start process in the life of a shaman. All these are entirely fascinating as is the waterfall that thunders down from a height of say 70 feet. Few facilities have been built for the visitors to go closer to the waterfall and take a shower.This a ideal place for kids to enjoy and is also best for family hangouts.

Vasudhara Falls

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.
