Location of the picture: Jonha Fall, named after the nearest village Jonha, is also referred to as Gautam Dhara as it is believed that Lord Buddha bathed here. The sons of Raja Baldevdas Birla built a temple and ashram dedicated to Buddha atop the Gautam Pahar. The ashram was originally associated with Hindu devotees as well as all branches of Arya dharma (Buddhists, Jains, Sikhs, Sanatani, Aryasamajis), as per proclaimed by a sign here. Situated at an edge of the Ranchi plateau, the Jonha Falls is an example of a hanging valley falls. The Ganga River hangs over its master stream, Raru River and forms the falls. One has to descend 722 steps to admire the surroundings. Water in the falls drops from a height of 43 metres (141 ft).

Location of the picture: Chitrakoot Waterfalls, Jagdalpur, Chattisgarh.
Possibly the most majestic waterfall in the country, the Chitrakoot Falls span a prodigious 520-feet across a horseshoe-shaped cliff from where the muddy waters hurtle down close to a 100 feet. With wild swirling eddies and a roar that can be heard for miles, these Falls have an untamed character that evokes equal amounts of fear and awe. A large amount of silt in the Indravati River during the monsoon makes the water quite muddy and swimming is out of the question. The Falls are surrounded by a surfeit of resorts, camping sites, picnic spots. Book accommodation in advance if you’re considering spending a night here.

Hi, this is Pranab Tripathy. Currently, I am pursuing my B.tech in Mechanical Engineering from NERIST, Arunachal Pradesh. I love travelling and taking pictures of people and places. My journey to Meghalaya has been a wonderful experience. The green mountains and in between a road taking to places with my favourite songs in the car, a road trip worth cherishing.
Location of the picture: Nohkalikai falls, Meghalaya, India.
The tallest plunge waterfall of India is an epitome of grace and wonder. Only the height is enough to stun, but the added beauty is certainly going to blow your mind. It is located near Cherrapunji, one of the wettest places on earth. The story associated with it will bring out your tears. The roads taking you to this place are no less. Lush green mountains and the cool breeze will make you road trip one of the best and memorable.
