One of the prettiest districts on the tourist circuit of Orissa is the Sundargarh region. Located amidst its lush forests is Orissa's most famous waterfall, the Khandadhar fall (about 244metres). The beauty of this place makes it a site not to be missed.
The second highest waterfalls of Orissa represents a serene environment. Formed by the river Korapani falling from a height of 244 meters from the Khandadhar hills,it creates a view that is amazing, marvelous and simply awesome. The Khandadhar waterfall of Orissa is situated amidst forests of mahogany, Sal, mango and tamarind in the Khandadhar hills. The mighty roars of the fall can be heard from anywhere inside the forest and to some extent even outside the forest. The sheer force at which the water gushes down at this place and the steepness of the terrain is enough to create an everlasting impression of awe in the tourists mind.
For fun lovers, this place provides ample scope for trekking activities. The forest is filled with an astounding variety of birds and though its unusual to glimpse wild animals, small animals like wild rabbits and foxes can be sighted if one is extremely lucky. This place is also a treat for plant lovers as the forest is covered with amazing variety of plants and wild flowers. A nice place for any nature lover!!!
A word of caution though with relation to the roads: Be prepared to travel on inhospitable road to reach this place!!!
