The roaring waterfalls…
Have you been pining about spending some time amid nature to wash off the lockdown stench? Well, head to the beautiful Thoseghar Waterfalls as seen here and rejuvenate in its crystal-clear water. Situated at the edge of the Konkan region in Maharashtra, India, the waterfall is formed of many small streams flowing from Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar and a series of other waterfalls that sprout up during the monsoon season. The sight of the waterfall is magical! You get to see the water swishing over the rocks joyfully. It thunders down into a pool like a gigantic waterspout, making a roaring sound. Needless to say, the place is rich in flora and fauna and you can see the species of exotic and local birds that you would have never seen before.
Another reason for featuring this beautiful waterfall today is that we are celebrating Maharashtra Day. On this day in 1960, Maharashtra gained statehood after the division from the Bombay State. It's a state holiday, so if you are anywhere near to the place, do visit Thoseghar Waterfalls and spend some quality time with family and friends.
