Wandering Destination: Tirathgarh waterfalls
The Teerathgarh Falls is a block type waterfall on the Kanger River in Bastar district of Chattisgarh which falls from about 90 meters. It further divides into two waterfalls and the water then runs through the valley of limestone deposits full with thick forest cover.
A small temple on a large rock opposite the falls is surrounded by the ruins of a 1,000-year-old Hindu civilization. In monsoon, the water flow is heavy and muddy. After Winter season, the water recedes and one can cross the fall and experience the complete enchanting view.
- As the distance between the viewpoint and the fall is too small, carry a wide angle lens or fish eye lens to capture complete fall.
- In monsoon season, when the fall is at peak, the vapors evaporating wets the camera. Keep a waterproof cover and a dry cloth to wipe water droplets.
- After the trip, immediately clean the camera.
