Perennial rainbows                     
 

Chitrakote Falls, the Niagara-like horseshoe waterfalls, are created by Bastar's Indravati river. There are mesmerizing vistas of rainbows arching across the turbulent flows. An Anthropological Museum gives an interesting insight into Bastar's tribal culture. Nagarnar, a short drive away, is famous for its terracotta handicrafts.

Chitrakote waterfalls lie in the midst of Kanger Valley National Park (Bastar district). One of the biggest falls in the country, these lie 40 km from Jagdalpur.

 

Situated at the mid-point of the Indravati river, the drop of the Chitrakote waterfalls is about 100 ft, with the water flow reaching a staggering volume of over 1,845 cu metres per second during the monsoons. Adding to the attraction is the constant rainbow hovering over the falls. These falls are illuminated at night.
