When I was in Corbett Museum & Corbett Fall

That Small Corbett Fall trip of mine was few year back. We planned this trip unexpectedly and for me this type of trips always becomes very memorable.

It was Sunday morning when one of my friend call me and said - Vini, it's has been a long time when we go out. Can we go for a day out  ?  Firstly, I could not think where we can go but Next, I got the idea of Corbett Fall.

Morning 9 O'clock we set off for the Corbett Fall. We took a Kaladhungi road for the Corbett Fall. This route is enormously stunning. From the upper side of road one can see an awesome view of this valley.


On the way, we come across with Khurpatal Lake, which was once very eminent for angling. Still a very beautiful fishes are in this lake. It says form upward the lake looks like cow's Khur and so it becomes a khurpatala. We cross the lake and headed forward. In short distance, we saw a small waterfall, which is a main attraction point for tourist. It is a monsoon waterfall so this time it was not looking that attractive.


After 2 hours, we were at Corbett museum. Once upon it was winter residence of Jim Corbett.  Now it has been converted in to the museum. Inside this, everything that belongs to the Jim was carefully intact. Even the chair and table, made by Jim, was also intact. Many documents and pictures are also here which shows the life of Jim. Corbett's dog graveyard, who used to go with him in his hunting, is also here.









 We spent a good time in this museum and then set off for the Corbett Fall. From here, we have to trek. This trek trail goes between dense Jungle. We were enjoying trek with different sort of vegetation and of course with chirping of birds as well. No doubt, wonderful view of surrounding was awesome. No artificial disturbance was wiping out it's natural beauty. Small water streams can cross by wooden bridge, which was adding extra beauty.

We were going on this trail, and all of a sudden, we came across with the waterfall. The immensity of this waterfall amused us. It was so high and flowing in the middle of jungle, which was making it huger.  Before that, I had looked this into pictures only but now it was in front of my eyes.  Within few seconds, we were close to waterfall and get into a pool and played into the water almost an hour. After spending magical time in water pool, we decided to see fall from upper side but it was very slippery so dropped the idea and start trek back.

Here we felt the spell of nature, which can easily eradicate all the quandary and tensions with his magnetism. No doubt, we spend unforgettable day here with this miraculous waterfall.
