India’s widest waterfall PC: Anzaar NabiChitrakote Waterfalls- Indravati river plunges 96feet (32 m) down the hillside. Famously known as “Niagara of India”, it has an awe-inspiring view. It is also India’s broadest waterfall. This majestic beauty is located 38 kms from Jagdalpur on the river Indravati. The water of the river flows through the dense vegetation and cascades from a height of about 96 feet. A horseshoe-shaped waterfall is 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 the base, the scene looks like a watercolour painting. The scenic beauty of the surrounding fascinates visitors and take them to a totally 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 plummeting down the edge. The colour of the water 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.
