Waterfalls - It's all about Waterfalls

Saturday, October 31, 2009


There is a definitive charm to the sparkling rivers and gurgling waters. Yes, Yes, I love Waterfalls. Considering I am a water sign, I just love it when I’m around any water body. And Western Ghats (mostly) feed my fascination to endless bounds. There is still a lot to cover but here are some of the waterfalls that I have seen and loved. I will keep adding to the list as I travel further. Click on the images for the links to the travelogues.
