The Chitrakoot Falls (alternative spelling Chitrakut) (Hindi: चित्रकोट जलप्रपात) is a waterfall located near Jagdalpur, in Bastar district in the Indian state of Chhattisgarh on the Indravati River. The height of the falls is about 29 metres (95 ft). The breadth of the waterfall varies, as the water level in the river goes down drastically during summer. However during a monsoon the river touches both the banks and is filled with silt. In contrast, during summer the water carries no silt and looks different. This is a contrast to Jog falls which has water that looks white even during monsoon.
The area around the falls is largely forested.
When most visitors visit they will find the falls much narrower but taller. Chitrakoot Waterfalls is also called 'The Niagara Falls of India'.
It is 40 kilometres (25 mi) west of Jagdalpur. Chitrakoot is a place of Hindu pilgrimage, which means that the footfall is high and accommodation is available at or near the falls.

magnificent view and photo! I love the way the waterfalls reflect the green color of the lake beneath. The striking contrast with the red boat is just great and the scale is very impressive. Stunning setting for sure.
Have a great weekend!

its always nice to see you posting new photo's on TE!
I can honestly say that this is a new subject from India, havn't seen these waterfalls posted on TE before, have you?
your note is describes the waterfalls very well, and seeing the little red boat puts everything into the correct perspective.

Does this place has some reference with Acharya Tulsidas? Its good to see big waterfall in our country also.
The tiny boat is a welcome sign.

You found a superb POV for this shot. It shows us most of the strangely shaped rocks and the impressive falls. The combination of red dinghey and turquoise water is stunning. It's a beautiful picture but I think that if you had lit it up a little bit the effect could have been even greater. I find it slightly dark.

I feel a green dominant colour, I have done a WS

Well framed and composed using the rule of thirds with the horizon line appropriately placed off centre. Good warm cold color contrasts between the red raft and ctyan water. I like the wide angled panoramic format too. The diagonal cliff adds dynamism and perspective. Tfs!

Wonderful place! The inclusion of the little boats in the picture helps giving us the idea of the size of the waterfalls. Very good colors and framing to show this wonder! Excellent job!

Your Niagra Falls of India looks very impressive.
I like how you have composed it, in such a way that it acts as a guide to the viewer, to travel from the bottom r/h corner of the frame to a strong vanishing point. There is a fine sense of depth and a good impression of scale by including the figures in the boats.
Thank you for sharing these details of a fine natural wonder, Bev :-)

Before I read your note, I thought that these look like Niagara Falls. Now that I read it, I realize I am not the only one who thinks so. The terrain reminds of the American Falls of Niagara Falls.
Good POV, pleasant composition. TFS.
