TREK TO CHINCHOTI WATERFALL on Saturday 03 October 2015
Trekkers through Kaman village generally visit Chinchoti falls on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad highway. Very few people know the jungle path through Tungareshwar. There are two jungle routes meeting at different spots near Chinchoti waterfalls.
Region: Tungareshwar Forest
Trek cost: Rs 350.00
The track is narrow jungle path and one can easily get lost without the help of escorts. The sound of the rains drops and orchestra of insects gives an eerie but adventurous feeling throughout this trek. You hear sounds of watercourses trundling down rock faces chatting at a high frequency before it comes in your view. This is the midpoint of the trek to Chinchoti. From this point onwards you will be crossing the stream on few occasions to reach the main waterfall. The journey is a thrilling experience and the waterfall is a beauty. The memories of the 125 feet magnificent waterfall will be permanently etched on your mind.
