  • Breathtaking views.. Juz loved the sound the water at night.. You can sit along side the falls and the whole day will pass by.. You can visit this place all round the year but visit during monsoon is recommended. Do stay in cottages provided by the govt.. The view from the cottage is the one you will never forget..
  • Thrilling experience. Apart from waterfall it's a good place for boating experience from very near to waterfall. Also this place has adventure sports which makes trip memorable. Local handcrafts , food and tribal people give a lifetime memory. Also a good place for movie and short film shooting. Educational trip for students and a nice place for picnic. Single couple or group a perfect holiday spot to enjoy weekend. Usually crowded when continuous indian holidays come. Every season has different views
  • We visited the place during rainy season. The volume of water in the waterfall was huge. It was an amazing view & very cleanly maintained. We visited the falls in the evening around 5pm. There are huge lights installed near the waterfalls & I personally recommend to stay little after sunset & witness the falls illuminated by the artificial lights. There is no proper barricade in front of the waterfall. So should be a bit more careful while taking selfies or if you have small kids. You also have some benches installed near the waterfall to sit and enjoy the waterfall. Overall a great view and a great experience
  • Majestic waterfall, however visit only during Monsoons for the best view. The free drop of the falls is a sheer height of about 30 metres (98 ft). Because of its horseshoe shape, it is compared with the Niagara Falls and is given in the sobriquet ‘ Niagara Falls of India’. During the rainy season, from July and October, rainbows are created with sun rays reflecting on mist from the waterfall. It is a beautiful view! Water flow conditions over the falls vary with the seasons. During the flood season or the monsoon season, the flow is filled with silt and hence looks brownish in color. It is India's widest waterfall overall. Local boat facilities operating below and under the falls in a misty atmosphere provide views of the falls under an early morning sun in reflected sun light and in a blue hue. Do try boating if time permits!
  • Widest fall in India. Also called the Niagara Falls of India. Astounding place. Good place for passing time and natural beauty. Around 33 km from jagdalpur. However some of the photos added in the Google map don't belong to here and are irrelevant. User discretion is needed.
