Chitradhara Waterfall spreading a unique shade

 Dense forests, bamboo clumps, skyscrapers, mountain ranges spread far and wide, spread like a lap of a youth in the green valleys, the waterfall suddenly dives with the sound of yesterday, the mystery in its geography And the caves containing the unique world of Tamas, in which the beautiful structures of Avasail-Utsail, which once absorbed the tourist in itself - the name of the same is Bastar, where art, culture and unique primitive traditions are also a matter of curiosity, Nature Bastar is the place where it has spread its wonderful shade freely.


 There are probably many misconceptions in the mind of tourists before arrival, but once you see the tourist places of Bastar, then the natural beauty of this place gets imprinted on the memory board for a long time. Bastar has a long chain of waterfalls, many of which are perennial, and there are some such waterfalls, which become waterless in summers; But in the rainy and winter season, where the beauty is unique, Mendrighumar, Kutri Ghumar Hathidarha etc. are in this category. Another beautiful waterfall is named - 'Chitradhara'. The 'Chitradhara Falls' is a wonderful specimen of the beauty of Bastar, where the ruggedness of Chambal, the caves in the hill, and the waterfalls flowing with deceit, the waterfalls are all seen together.


 12 KM from Jagdalpur. Till Karanji, after turning to Lohandiguda Chitrakote road, a road from the left to Tokapal takes 3 kms on Visharagila Noti Rof. On leaving, a small creek flows at a valley-like place near a small hill station like Tekri near Kurenga village and 1 km from here. The source of the agricultural spring flowing away from the river also appears at this place, due to which water remains here throughout the year, but in summers the beauty of the waterfall becomes 'shrinkless'. The beauty of this waterfall is seen during the rainy season. On another route Potanar (Jagdalpur-Chitrakot road) at 16th Km. Chitradhara can also be reached from near Kurenga village on the way from Tokapal to Karanji. In the upper part of the Chitradhara Falls, the devotees have built a Shiva temple and a square flat auditorium has been built.


 From where tourists can admire the beauty of the waterfall. Nearby there is a footpath on either side, from where one can reach the foothills of the falls. Apart from the main waterfall, another beautiful waterfall offers beautiful views on the left bank for its full width. In the central part of the main waterfall, there is a mound-like terrain on which a tree has grown, bifurcating, it is seen to double the beauty. Due to the fall of the stream, the erosion inside the rock gives the feeling of a cave. After the formation of the waterfall, about 50 feet deep on the hierarchically cut rocks, the water flows in the form of a waterfall, spreading the unique beauty.


On the other hand, another waterfall, falling across the entire width, seems as if it is molten silver, which destiny has poured out together - the stream flows and reaches the lower part. Standing between the two waterfalls, the main waterfall, divided into a width on the left, and the stream flowing down to a depth of about 100 feet, goes far between the rugged mountain cliffs. Here together there is a feeling of showing the Chitrakote and Tirathgarh waterfalls. On descending, the rocky roof on the left side has come out 10-12 feet like a home-made terrace, a flat rock below as if nature had made it for beauty observation. Under this, two small caves are built like a moat, which goes up to 8-10 feet, the depth of the water in the water tank is very much in the rainy season. Looking up from the bottom, it seems as if a person is standing in the ravine of Chambal. The stunning beauty of this place captivates the mind of the tourist.

 When viewed from a distance, this entire beauty gives a feeling like a painting or picture hanging on a wall, hence its name Chitradhara seems meaningful. The local people call it 'Kutri-Ghoomar'. Ghoomar, in the local dialect, is called a waterfall, and since it is waterless in summer, the beauty of this place becomes waterless from the point of view of water. That is why the local people address it as Kutri Ghoomar, however people now know it as 'Chitradhara'. The internal water source flowing in summer is 1 km from here. It is far from a natural water source in a field, where water flows throughout the year from the farm. The water flows out of the field and disappears, which reappears among the rocky rocks of Chitradhara.


The tourism of Chitradhara is best only till the rainy and winter months i.e. December-January month. After that, from February to May, the water level of the waterfall is very low, it is not enjoyable. It can also be reached at any time by two wheeler and four wheeler. Just 20 KM from Jagdalpur. Even after being in the periphery of the city, people come here less because of being little known, yet people do come here for picnics during the holidays. It is best to bring arrangements for food, snacks, tea. Once a tourist sees this place, then the beauty of this place gets permanently imprinted on his memory board.
