Boxdabbe falls

27 July 2013

This is a waterfall that can be reached without putting much effort. The falls makes its appearance from the main road itself. Thankfully, it is not known to many people although it is famous among localities.

From the main road, we entered into a mud track. Very soon, we were in a private area. No one was there to stop us thanks to pouring rains and active leeches. A series of switchbacks brought us to a place where we could see the waterfall hidden behind the canopy of trees.

Another minute of walk and we were at the base of the falls. It is a two or three step falls. Thanks to heavy rains, I could only take out my camera for few seconds and click.

It is a ‘safe’ falls where people can easily enter into the water without the fear of being washed away. But it is not matter as we were already wet and did not bother to get in.

Later in the day we were having tea at a tea stall where we discussed about this waterfall. It was then we came to know that the locals identify the falls by an Ex MLA’s name!!

What a falls and what a name!!
