The abundance of rain result in  thousand of magical and thunderous waterfalls everywhere you look. This list is just a list of the 'best; waterfalls in India but be assured - you will see hundreds and hundreds of them.

Why do we like these water falls so much?

Who knows...? Perhaps it has something to do with the power of nature, the principles of gravity, the seductive power water has over man as one of the basic elements. Whatever it is, thousands of people every year travel to see these, some of natures finest miracles. And India, is home to some beauties.

Umbrella falls

This is one of my favourite waterfalls in India (hence why it is at the top of the list). The sound this one makes it truly astounding as tonnes of water come crashing down every second. Perhaps the best thing about this water fall is the little bridge which runs over the base of it - like something from a fantasy film I always think! It is located about 53 km from the town of Nashik in Ahamednagar in Mahrashtra.

Kiliyur Waterfalls

Once again we head to the western Ghats in the south of India for this, the Kilyur Falls. Although maybe not the most spectacular of waterfalls in India. 

The waterfall serves as a run of from the Yercand river and the proceed to drop 300 feet. To visit you have to make your way to the Shervaoyan hill range in Tamil Nadu.

Papanasam Waterfall

This series of rough and ready falls is located once again in Tamil Nadu but this time on the Tamravarni river. The waters of this river are considered by Hindus as holy and the falls are now an important pilgrimage site - as a result a small village has cropped up around the falls with local entrepreneurs attempting to sell the wares.

Savdav Waterfall

Savdav is another one of the incredibly beautiful waterfalls of India with water gushing down over the rock face shrouding it in mist and mystery. This is a 'monsoon only waterfall' which perhaps what makes it so special. If you fancy walking you have to cover roughly ten km from the town of Kankavli and obviously you might want to check that it's running before you embark upon such a journey - The best/only time to go is around the end of June to early September
