The waterfall is sourced from the Indravati river which flows westwards towards Jagdalpur and cascades down from a descent of 30m from the top of the cliff in 3 streams during summers, but the falls stretch over the whole width of 300 meters and plunge down as a magnanimous blanket of glorious roaring water during monsoon months when the river Indravati is at its maximum flow capacity. When you see the sheer force with which the water descends from the cliff and strikes the underlying surface engulfing everything that sets path in its course in a white mist, you will see that it has rightly been nicknamed the Niagara Falls of India, it is also around one-third the width of Niagara Falls. All in all Chitrakoot is perfect for day picnics, stunning panoramic views or just some time away from the commotion of the cities for detoxing amidst nature.
