Fresh Waterfall

Driving from Athikadavu to Ooty, passing through Manjoor, we find some pristine waterfalls and freshwater streams/spring during the course and a part of my road less travel. This’s a route that passes through wild forest and private vehicles are allowed only after thoroughly checking or enquired which has been tightened since the intrusion of antisocial.  


Actually this is a river sourced from mountain sholas and it flows like a waterfall at a point where we stopped on the bridge across the river to watch the waterfalls in step format. I think this should be a check dam but in long run the washed off rocks and sand raised the river floor and from the bridge it looked awe with a pool and huge bounder beneath.


Since we drove slowly enjoying the pristine natural environment and forest along, we stopped at many places to watch and capture the nature and manmade that wonder us. I really don’t want to reveal much about this route and let people know themselves if they are interested because we really need to protect these areas and prevent anything disturbing.

This is such a beautiful area. The natural waterfall is wonderful. I am sure people have tried to imitate the look of all those stones in a stair step to make a waterfall. You keep sharing parts of India that I was not aware of in the country's terrain. Great shots you have taken.

This is interesting to see the natural water that falls down along the man made rocky cliffs! Simply beautiful.

Lovely waterfall tumbling down the steps! Too many visitors is not good for nature.

Looks nice @ Waterfalls. Wonder if the steps are manmade or natural.
