There are some beautiful waterfalls in India that are not yet commercialized and Tiger Falls is one of them. This is a majestic waterfall located in the northern part of India amidst the hilly terrain near Chakrata.
The fall is surrounded by dense forest and water gushing from the hill roars loudly like a tiger. This fall is popular among travellers for a peaceful and enthralling experience. We had a wonderful trekking experience during our visit. Trekking is comfortable and you can choose long 5 km or short 1 km routes to reach the fall according to your comfort. We chose the longest route for trekking downhill and got to see some hamlets and lush green fields along the way. The water from the hill falls into a small pond where you can take a dip in the cold water and have some fun.

Soochipara Falls, also known as Sentinel Rock Waterfalls is a three-tiered waterfall situated in Vellarimala, Wayanad. The Fall is surrounded by dense green forests and is known as one of the best waterfalls in Wayanad. The drive to the waterfall was amazing with scenic views of some of the best tea estates in Wayanad.
The waterfall lies amongst the most eco-friendly spots, the tourists are not allowed to carry plastic bags or any such object which can mess up the surroundings. At the entry point of the waterfall, guards will check if the tourists are carrying any plastic or not.
We visited this fall during our Wayanad trip. After parking our car in the parking area near the entry point we had to trek for about 2 kilometres to reach the fall. There were about 70 steps which we had to climb down to reach the waterfall. Trekking was easy and took us about 30 minutes. It was a treat for the eyes to see the milky white stream of water making its way to the pool by passing through the rocky cliffs and clinging trees. Do not forget to pack your swimming costume if you really want to enjoy the fall.

This waterfall is located in Chikmagalur District, Karnataka. This is the most beautiful waterfall in India that I have visited so far. If you are a real nature lover then you will definitely fall in love with this waterfall. It is surrounded by coffee estates and part of private property. The journey to the Falls will leave you in awe and you will find many picture-perfect locations even before reaching the fall.
It is said that the natural pond formed by the waterfall is filled with medicinal substances. This is also one of the reasons many visitors are attracted to this fall.
When I first heard the name of this fall it sounded weird to me but later we discovered that it derived its name from a tribal couple, Chuncha and Chunchi. Located at a distance of 83km from Bangalore, Chunchi Falls lies en route to Mekedatu and Sangama in Karnataka. Mekedatu is a rocky valley, while Sangama is the meeting point of three rivers. This is a 50-foot-high cascade of falls, which is fed by the river Arkavati. This fall is also not commercialized. People usually visit this waterfall on their way to Sangma.
Abbey Falls is located approximately 10 km away from Madikeri in the Kodagu district. Nestled within the lush greenery it gives a fantastic opportunity for shutterbugs to capture the natural beauty of this place.
I just loved this waterfall. Though we had to climb down 200 steps to reach the actual fall it was all worth it. Being located in the midst of a private coffee plantation, this fall gives you a good opportunity to see the exotic coffee, cardamom, and pepper plantations.
The waterfall is a combination of many streams that come together and fall into a pool of water that flows and merges into River Kaveri. The water cascading down from the cliff from the height of 70 ft provides a mesmerizing and spectacular scene to behold. There is an overbridge that hangs opposite the fall, from where the most picturesque scene of the white foam gushing down the cliff can be seen and captured. If you stand on the bridge, you can feel the mist on your face. If you ever visit Coorg then don’t forget to add this waterfall to your travel itinerary.
