Beat the Summers with these Spectacular Waterfalls of India

Heat waves of scorching summers have already entered your living room and its time you pack your bags and travel to destinations that offer you some respite. The vast Indian landscape is blessed with an array of breathtaking water bodies which not only adds to the ethereal beauty of the country, but also offers utter respite and solace to worldwide tourists. If you are not that interested in sea shores and rivers, then I have something different to offer you from my bucket. Why not soothe your soul by spending some cool comfortable moments around a waterfall? Go through this list of India’s most spectacular waterfalls and simply rejuvenate your senses.

Dudhsagar waterfalls: You all might know Goa for its sun soaked beaches and late night parties. What you might forget is that Western Ghats is blessed with some of the most beautiful spots of India. One such heavenly and picturesque destination is Dudhsagar waterfalls in the Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary at Collem, Goa. Literally meaning “Sea of milk”, Dudhsagar Waterfalls is one of the highest waterfalls in India descending like an ocean of milk from a lofty height of around 600m. Due to continuous fall of water and surrounding green tropical forest, the climate here remains comparatively pleasant and meets the expectation of your respite seeking mood. Hire a local taxi from Goa or take a jeep to reach this scenic watery destination. Though the slippery rocks make it a perilous place, yet trekkers go crazy because of the surrounding greenery and cool climate. Take a break from humid summers and revitalize yourself with the sprinkle of the gushing waters.

Athirapally waterfalls: Not less picturesque than the “Niagara Falls of America”, the Athirapally waterfalls have been nicknamed aptly as the “Niagara Falls of India”. Located in Thrissur, Kerala, the gigantic waterfalls evolved as a must visit destination for tourists. In fact this is another natural wonder of Kerala apart from its golden beaches and romantic backwaters. It is located on Chalakudy River near Vazhachal Forest with the tall green tree covered Western Ghats at the backdrop. A magical sight of kids diving into the water, local fishermen catching fish and green trees swaying with the tune of nature will leave you spellbound. Its overall beautiful setting has influenced a lot of Bollywood producers to shoot romantic songs of their films here. So what are you thinking of? Come to Kerala, stay at decent resorts near the falls and just beat the heat like never before.

Iruppu waterfalls: India’s Coffee Country, Coorg, is blessed with some of the exquisite beauties of nature. One such beauty is the Iruppu waterfalls located in the south of Coorg in the Brahmagiri hill ranges and close to Nagarhole National Park. The Lakshmana Tirtha River originates from this falls and plunges amidst the green mountains to create a spectacular sight to stare at.

Apart from the mountain ranges, these majestic waterfalls of India have been a traveler’s delight since ages. If you also wish to enjoy a glance of these natural wonders, pack your bags and come to India and enjoy a trip to remember for years to come.
