Chitrakot, the gorgeous waterfall is on the river Indravati, situated at a distance of 38 Km. in the west of Jagdalpur. Height of this waterfall is approximately 100ft.The Chitrakot waterfalls can be called as the smaller form of the world famous Nayagra waterfalls(only in monsoons though). The rainbow colors of the falls attracts the tourists at the first sight itself. These waterfalls are in a horse-shoe shape.
The whole width of the rock is flows with water during monsoon. We went thr in peak summer and hence only two streams of water. Although we would've missed the lovely blue-green of the waterpool below in monsoon. The very serene falls turn pretty wild and muddy during monsoon and it is not possible to access this area then.

These truly unique waterfalls, normally we see them falling from a mountain between trees and these seem to arise from the rocks in a valley.
Excellent details and good light.

I love such a dramatic fall scenery. I've been living very close to one of such 'Niagara Falls'. when the water rolls down the slope and suddenly it won't find the land and fall 100s of feet below. Watching it is simply fantastic. Around the great lakes region where I live is filled with such falls. Looks like you took this picture in high sun time. an evening one with a delayed shot that creates the water flow effect would turn out awesome. and the green or the sky nothing helped you. I wish I can visit this place in my life time. after having visited 16 states in India, seeing your picture I feel there is much more to see in this world.
