India has always had its fair share of places that were up to the brim with natural beauty. From lush green valleys to pristine beaches and everything in the middle, one can never run out of places with nature’s bounty when travelling in India. With that being said, here’s a list of 10 magical waterfalls in India,
– Shivanasamudra Falls, Karnataka
With so many beautiful waterfalls within a hundred kilometer radius, Karnataka can be called the state of waterfalls. Shivanasamudra falls are famous for the sheer volume, it discharges as much as 19 million liters of water every monsoon and it is a sight to behold.
– Athirapally Falls, Kerala
Every monsoon, the district of Thrissur in Kerala springs to life as the rain rejuvenates the life in the region. Well, it’s not just the rain, the Athirapally falls also plays an important role in giving the region that extra boost of green. This one may not be as high as some of the other waterfalls on this list but that doesn’t make it any less magical.
– Kune Falls, Maharashtra
With a height of 200 metres, the Kune falls in the Lonavala-Khandala region is a three tiered waterfall that comes to life in the monsoon. Witnessing the beauty and power of nature at the Kune falls will surely give you an unforgettable memory.
– Nohkalikai Falls, Meghalaya
Being the wettest state in India, Meghalaya has a lot of stunning waterfalls. But none come close to the Nohkalikai falls. With a height of 1,100 meters the Nohkalikai falls is the highest plunge fall in the country. A spectacular sight, the best thing about these falls is you can see it in all its glory any time of the year.
– Dudhsagar Falls, Goa
With its vibrant and famed party scene, travelers never really take into account that there is more to Goa than beaches and boozing. An example of how less travelers know about the state’s natural bounty is the Dudhsagar falls, with a height of 310 meters, watching the water flow by cutting the rocks is a sight that to me personally, is way more beautiful than any of the experiences I could have on one of Goa’s beach parties.
– Jog Falls, Karnataka
The second highest plunge fall in the country, the Jog Falls in Shimoga are a truly stunning sight. The power of nature is in full view in monsoon when you can feel the force by which the water falls from the cliffs and onto the rocks beneath it.
– Iruppu Falls, Coorg
One of the most beautiful hill stations in South India, Coorg is bound to have its fair share of naturally beautiful spots. One of these spots is the Iruppu falls which is a place where locals and travelers alike, come to wash off their sins before heading to the nearby Shiva temple.
– Jang Falls, Arunachal Pradesh
You must trek approximately 200 meters to witness the beauty of one of the most scenic waterfalls in the country. Not just a tourist attraction, the Jang falls also play an important role in powering the state of Arunachal Pradesh.
– Bhimlat Falls, Rajasthan
A place of beauty that seems out of place, the Bhimlat falls in Rajasthan seems like a well-preserved secret in the desert state of Rajasthan. An oasis in the middle of a hot and dry area, visiting the falls can make anyone feel like what they’re witnessing isn’t real (in a good way).

Known as the ‘Niagara of India’, the Hogenakkal falls in the district of Dharmapuri is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the region and rightfully so. The water from the falls is famed for its disease curing properties and it offers travelers a breathtaking sight to behold.
