Chitrakut Waterfall, Chattisgarh, IndiaChitrakut Waterfall, Chattisgarh, India
FALL IN LOVE WITH WATERFALLS OF INDIA
No other country in the world has so many awesome waterfalls, than India. India’s incredible diverse landscape of high rise Himalayas, long mountain ranges and tropical rain forests have created a wonder of great 300 waterfalls worth visiting mentioned in Wikipedia.

I'm sure you would be amazed with this travel information!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_waterfalls_in_India

It’s not possible to cover all the waterfalls even in a lifetime, I think so, as we have to take care of our lives as well. These falls are rugged beauties, some with great heights and awesome force. Surrounded by either tropical forests or snow peaks these are not dressed up for marketing like Niagara Falls or like the other waterfalls in Europe.

Before I start with my adventure to one of the highest waterfall in Asia, situated in the state of Karnataka, let me give you DO’S and DON’TS of trekking around waterfalls in INDIA

  1. Great idea for a blog! I've always had a fascination with India and am, in fact, planning a trip there for next year (I would love to go during Holi - is that a good idea?). I look forward to reading through more of your blog and hope to gain inspiration for more spots I need to visit (as India offers endless options!)
