Visit its ancient temples walk down its forested paths and get the tang of spraying waterfalls on your upturned face. The state tells many historic tales, beckons you to the dhol beat of the tribals, soothe your eyes as they meet the lush verdant landscape.

Witness the magnificent Chitrakote falls cascading down rock faces and you would never need to cross the seven seas to watch the Niagara falls or watch the 100 ft high Tirathgarh falls. The horse shaped Chitrakote waterfall spawns the river Indravati. Christened the ' Niagara of India' the spary from the tumbling waterfall breaks out into vibrant colours splashed across the sky in the form of a permanent rainbow.

The breathtaking tumultuous fall forms a mist all around it. Nature unveils  its palatte during sunrise, when the entire horizon smiles with glory. Living in tents in the dense forest and trekking through the many trails are a truly exicting and worthwhile experience.

38 kilometres away from Jagdalpur, the district town of Bastar is the Chitrakoot waterfalls. After reaching the place one has to walk for a mile to reach these fantastic waterfalls. Hearing the water tumble down from a distance in no ways gives any clue that we are approaching to it as the topogarphy of the land leading is entirely different. There are a few shrubs and trees here and there which lead the way. The most important thing that one gets to see is the raw nature which is untouched by the human hand. There are no shops, restaurants or commercial activity around.

River Indravati meanders along the rocky earth of Dandakaranya and flows from a height to form these famous waterfalls. This places has an historic importance too, it was in these deep forests that Rama and Sita spent eleven of their fourteen years of exile. This place was reffered to as a beautiful place in Ramaya.
