Chitrakote Waterfall

India’s widest waterfall PC: Anzaar Nabi

Indrāvati river plunges 96feet (32 m) down the hillside. It is also called as “Niagara of India” and an awe-inspiring view. It is also India’s broadest waterfall. The majestic beauty is located 38 km from Jagdalpur in Bastar on the river Indrāvati. The water of the river flows through the dense vegetation and cascades from a height of about 95 feet. A horse-shoe shaped waterfall, best seen during and after the monsoon, between July and October. This paints a very beautiful sight.

With an almost permanent rainbow forming in front of the waterfall and slim fishing boats swaying at base, the scene looks like a watercolor painting. The scenic beauty of the surrounding fascinate visitors and take them to a total different world of ecstasy.

The 305m- wide gorge is ribboned by seven distinct streams of the Indravati River, which flows gently on the flat rocky surface before plummenting down the edge. The water color changes from season to season. In monsoon because of silt it turns a little brown in shade whereas in summer it’s white and clear.
