Chitrakoot:

Chitrakoot is a naturally occurring waterfall in the Bastar district of Chhattisgarh. It is located in the western region of Jagdalpur and is one of the prime tourist attractions in and around Jagdalpur that is famous for its breathtaking sunsets. The waterfall is sourced from the Indravati river which flows westwards towards Jagdalpur and cascades down from a descent of 30m from the top of the cliff in 3 streams during summers. However, during monsoon, when the river Indravati is at its maximum flow capacity, the falls stretch over the whole width of 300 meters and plunge down as a magnanimous blanket of glorious roaring water.

Mainpat:

Mainpat often called as Shimla of Chhattisgarh and Mini Tibet is a hill station with its untouched green pastures, deep valleys, breathtaking waterfalls, dense forests, magnificent hills and untouched rivulets. The hill station hasn't been completely commercialized yet and receives relatively smaller influx of tourists. The Tibetan refugees were rehabilitated in Mainpat after the Chinese invasion of Tibet and therefore you can see the confluence of cultures and diverse traditions here.
