Under the Falls...!!

Does anyone have a count of the number of waterfalls in the world? It is a tough one. How about the number in your country? Still tough? How about in your state? I know these are tough questions and even keen travellers find it tough to keep a count of them. India has a long list of waterfalls which are big, wide and high. The most well known ones are Jog falls, Chitrakoot falls, Athirapilly falls, Courtallam falls, Shivanasamudram falls, Ethipothala falls, Dudhsagar falls, Dhuandhar falls, Meenmutty falls, Hoganekkal falls, Amboli falls and  Nokhalikai falls.

 Rather than just watching the water fall from great heights, it is best experienced under it.  Most waterfalls have a small trek over a couple of boulders or a small coracle ride to the base of the falls. The experience is truly thunderous and therapeutic.  Standing under the falls and having the white water thrash on to your body is absolutely refreshing. Add to that a dip in that cold waters at the base and you come out fully charged. It is definitely an adventurous bathing experience to have a shower under those mighty waterfalls.

  2. Water falls anywhere make an awesome sight. I have been to Athirapalli and Courtallam. I also have felt the thundering falls on my back at Courtallam 37 years ago.Yes They had a great massaging effect and the result was so soothing and enjoyable. It relieves you of all aches and pains.
