The dancing beauty of Chhatishgarh, Tirathgarh and Chitrakoot Waterfall

Chhatisgarh is the neighboring state of our Odisha. When I was studying in Government College of Engineering Kalahandi, Bhawanipatna, in the year of 2015 in our 3rd year we planned for a trip to Tirathgarh and Chitrakoot waterfall on 23rd January.

Since those two places are belongs to the other state, the taxis must resister their vehicles for All India Permit. But it was too expensive, So we hire a private vehicle which always traveling to those places. We've planned for the trip according to the Google map. Here is that map view.

In our group we're eight friends, but unfortunately one can't go with us. So we are seven members. We've started our journey in the mid night of 22nd January 2015.

We left Bhawanipatna at 2.00AM. All the members were excited. Gradually our car increased the speed through NH 26 and crossed all the places including our College, Sardar Raja Medical College, Jaring, Junagargh and etc etc.

After 80 kilometers from Bhawanipatna, Ambpani Ghati came. Before that, at the small market of Ambpani we stop our car and had some tea and some smoked also.

6. A snap to the road over the Ghati from the Car.
The Ghati is around 10 kilometers and it's too dangerous. The road to Jaypore and Koraput also crossed through this Ghati.
Around 6.00 AM we had reached at Jagdalpul. Tirathgarh is located at a distance of 35 kilometres (22 mi) south-west of Jagdalpur.

After this small breakfast of Alu Pakodi and Chatni, It's my turn to look around the Tirathgarh waterfall and the beauty of hills. Then we went down for a round and took bath for the first time with water of waterfall. That time was partially winter and those water were too cold. But managed with those water.

There we did some fun, captured some photos with funny poses. Here all the photographs.
