Midubandha Waterfall, Daringbadi

in Pinmapple2 months ago (edited)

A beautiful gift from nature that should have been maintained much better.


After spending a colorful evening Learning about Tribal culture, and a very graceful sleep, I got up early to discover the morning outside, pretty scenic and blissful.


This was the view of outside from our tent - felt like WOW.

Since everyone was sleeping I thought to roam around and capture some memories of the valley.



Imagine how it would feel to drive in such a road.


The backside view of the valley from Eco-retreat.



Next day itinerary was to visit nearby places with all visitors in a bigger vehicle provided by them, so we quickly got ready.







Could not resist enjoying the coffee in the lobby outside the restaurant, they have nicely set up the tents ( just below this view) and kept the sitting arrangement in this scenic view.





They have put the details of all outdoor activities in the room, so that was good to remind about the timing. As per the schedule, we thought, we would go to Midubandha Waterfall, but when we reached at reception, they said, they already completed that previous day and can take us next day. In should they would take guests to Patabandha Waterfall and Coffee Garden. The vehicles were parked outside and we can sit in them.


Looking at these vehicles, I thought, it would be good we go on our own car, which will be better and changed our plan. Took few tips from the guide and headed straight to Midubandha Waterfall which was 16 km ride in the lovely valley.


The ride from this place going down steep to the waterfall was scary, and only light vehicles allowed. The parking space is very limited, but we could manage to find a spot. Then one has to walk down around hundred-eighty steps to see the waterfall. This was the reason, Eco-retreat does not advise or take elderly people here.



Just about we started walking down on steps, someone coming up was telling, there is nothing down there, no water, it's useless to go down and take so much of pain. Hearing that, Kids did not want to go any further down and return from there. But then I motivated them not to hear to unknown person - if we have come this far, then let's go and see it ourselves. And when we reached there, definitely it was worth going there.





There was definitely water there from a pleasing small waterfall to experience. Many people were going to the bottom of the fall and taking bath there. Unfortunately, the place is not maintained at all, there is no guidance and people have thrown litters all around.



These stones are the only means to sit and capture the waterfall as background and after waiting a while, we could grab the place and then carefully go there.









Found someone handling a DSLR so we all managed to stand with difficulty for a family photo and requested him to capture this. See the video and let me know, if its worth it or not.

After staying for more than a hour we walked back.




They were happy to hear me and go down.




The turmeric and mustard (black as well as white) of this place is famous, and there is a particular shop in the city selling it, but that was closed when we came. So we decided to grab some from these local vendors - still enjoying them, the raw turmeric would stay for more than a year. It's pure organic and chemical free as they do not add any fertilizers.


This post will be part of my Google review of this place.

Why was that person lying to you about the waterfall? I don´t understand... Btw the place is really nice but it´s heartbreaking to see this natural gem being littered by disrespectful visitors :( There should be some heavy fines for littering places like this...

Why was that person lying to you about the waterfall?

Not sure, may be he was expecting a very big one. No one bothers to litter if law is not enforced, that's the sad reality.

Yeah. But I don´t understand why nobody enforces the regulations. There would be 2 options: either people would be discouraged from littering by those fines and the place would then be nice and clean again, or people wouldn´t care about the fines and still litter the place but that would generate a lot of money through those fines and the money could be used in many useful ways... Basically anything would be better than what the current situation.

I love visiting with waterfalls! Been to some of them before Covid.

What a trip.
I like the water.
The scenery was awesome.
We should visit this kind of place.
You people are living their lives in the true meaning.

Amazing place to visit, it seems that you had quality time with your family... even thats waterfall is having mesmerizing view, thanks god that you didn't believe to that unknown guy.... thanks for sharing your precious moments with us...

thanks god that you didn't believe to that unknown guy.

Ya, if we went that far, then why not go till end and discover ourselves !

Those photos look wonderful. It really makes me happy to see so much trees. I live in the city so I frequently see just buildings, with very few trees. It feels like a lot of nature is being converted to cities and towns, so this eco retreat is like a breath of fresh air. That waterfall looks lovely, can people swim there?

can people swim there?

Some were, even though the water level was barely waist level :)

That's ok. Most would just want to take a picture near the waterfalls anyways :D

Thank you so much, I do share the TravelFeed link only all over.

The beauty of nature is shown in all of these pictures. Greenery, waterfall and everything is looking beautiful ❤️

What a beautiful way to start the day, a cup of coffee always good. Very good in the morning, what a beautiful view you have, a beautiful mountainous landscape, worth seeing and enjoying
It's good that they didn't listen to the comments of a stranger, and decided to continue going down, otherwise, they would have missed that natural beauty.

What a shame that in such a beautiful place people do not take care of them and throw waste right there.

Thank you very much for sharing this beautiful family moment

Have a great day dear friend @sanjeevm

This is really beautiful. It is nice to see happiness on your faces.

The water falling and these green mountains are quite beautiful and present a beautiful view of nature ❤️

I will really love to visit the waterfall someday

Lovely outing, I love the way your boy is growing to look like you. Hope you had a lovely time out with your family?

Yes, Yes.

That's so lovely. My regards.

I just love the view of everything I’m seeing here
I love the atmosphere too
It looks nice

What a beautiful place. I agree that there are places that are not well-maintained, and they needed attention for better maintenance.

It feels awesome going to amazing place like this to visit and spend time.

Makes us stress free.

It gives me memories of my hometown Soon valley. The place you have posted very beautiful and attractive.
Kids enjoy such places and I think refreshing sights very important for kids to enjoy and have fun after studies.

They are indeed refreshing, we loved the place.

I strongly believe it must have really been a great time for you to explore around visiting that place actually

You have been to a wonderful place, your family is beautiful

Thank you so much.

The food looks delicious. I'd love to be able to try a buffet like that sometime. That way you can learn what you like and what you don't!

Food was great, and it was all included, so eat as much as possible :)

That could be dangerous!

@tipu curate

Amazing hope you enjoy your day
