Photographer's Note

Hello Dear friends,

This is a view of Chitrakote Water Falls.

The Chitrakote Falls is a natural waterfall located to the west of Jagdalpur. It is situated in Bastar district of Indian state Chhattisgarh. On the journey of River Indrabati through dense vegetation on the plain in Chahattisgarh, suddenly the water of the flows drops with a height of 93 feet and build this magnificent waterfalls at Chitrakoot. It is just 38 kilometer west of Jagdalpur. Chitrakoot waterfall is the largest waterfalls in India and also may be the widest waterfalls in Asia, so it is popularly called as "the Niagara falls of India". The wideness of the waterfall depends on the water level in the river Indrabati. And session by session it varies drastically, as in summer the span of the Chitrakoot waterfall is minimum, but during monsoon the water level of the river Indrabati touches the both banks and the waterfall also formed the widest, nearly 150 meter in wide and the falls look like wild in nature.

In monsoon i.e. July to September is the best time, when it spreads up to 150 meter in wide of brown colored water and also sunlight make rainbows here and there after reflect with the water grains. At the time of sunset, when sunlight drop on the water of Chitrakoot falls, it makes a magnificent environment to see. During summer and winter it forms a white fall and you can reach towards the falls by boat.

This is my third post of Chhattisgarh and I got an opportunity to capture it. I visited there in the month of September, 2014.

with best wishes to all,
