The place is very exciting and you will never forget it for sure. There is a maggi point down towards the waterfall. Go and have tea and maggi there. Its wonderful. Also... More

On a family vacation to Chhattisgarh, we decided to explore Jagdalpur area. Jagdalpur is around 400 km away from Raipur, the state capital. Various transport modes are available including buses. We chose own taxi. Chitrakot waterfalls is simply wonderful. You can visit in the month of May/June (before rain) and post monsoon. Both are equally beautiful. We went in the... More

Wonderful environment. Prevent the monsoon as the water flow is hard enough to wash someone with it. Besides the rainfall also makes it tough to drive on roads connecting jagdalpur to Raipur. For tourists not local, winter is the best season as the water calms down and is clear to enjoy a bath.

1.This place is 39km from Jagdalpur. 2. I visited the place on 25th February 3. A boat ride which takes you just beside where the water falls(only a few meters away) is a must. It's one experience YOU WILL NOT FORGET. The boat ride cost me just 30/person 4. In February when there is not too much water current on... More

A beautiful place, easily accessible from Jagdalpur (good road, 40 km). Sadly, a hotel was built at the top, and there is a game park at the bottom. The government should have done more to protect the area (could have made it a natural park). Hopefully the natural setting won't be any more destroyed (otherwise the spirit of the place... More

The best time to visit this place is after monsoon. Even though we visited this place in January it felt like heaven. Waterfalls, mountains, greenery, calmness are the beauties of this place. The sound of birds and water are mesmerizing. The boat ride is must-do. The lunch at the Chhattisgarh Tourism restaurant near the waterfall was a tasty and relaxing... More

Water Ghushes on these hills and during rains it feels awesome. Must visit and stay here for night in a nice resort next to it. Some part of fall flows round the year.
