Khandika falls

11 June 2011

My uncle has recently discovered new waterfalls in the forests near our village. In spite of being close to civilization, the locals were oblivious of its existence. All these things interested me a lot and decided to have a look at it myself. While having tea, the discussions were about this falls. A decision was made suddenly to see this falls!! And after few minutes I was driving my car with my Uncle and Cousin.

Dinesh, a “localite” near the falls joined us. It was his first visit for him also!! As we moved away from the tar road, the surroundings changed drastically. We were inside dense evergreen forests. Few minutes later, we parked the car and started walking. A small patch of areca nut plantation had to be crossed. We also had to cross the stream coming from the waterfalls twice to reach it.

The waterfall was a pleasant surprise. I was expected some small falls but this was bit big. It was just the beginning of monsoon and hence there was decent amount of water. A nice place to take shower!!

And this is not just a monsoon falls. It hold decent amount of water even in winter months. We must be the largest crowd to visit this falls till date!!
