Chitrakoot Waterfalls, Chattisgarh

Been there recently?

This waterfall, formed by the Indravati River, is the widest waterfall in India, with a width in excess of 900 feet (some sources put it at 980 feet). The river takes a slight right turn, and its width doubles just before the waterfall. During monsoons, it is a sight to behold as a huge amount of water forms a shape similar to a horseshoe and rolls down to a depth of 95 ft making a roaring sound. During non-monsoon days, boats ferry tourists to the base of the waterfall, and it is a thrilling experience to live with. Chitrakoot is about 38 kilometres from Jagdalpur city, which is well connected by rail and air.
