Tucked away in the verdant folds of the Bamra-Gangpur forest range, lies Badal Giri Waterfall, a hidden gem just waiting to be discovered. Whispering 13 kilometers from Boneikela and 60 kilometers from the bustling city of Rourkela, it’s a haven for those seeking an escape into nature’s embrace.
The journey to Badal Giri itself is an adventure. Wind through winding paths, enveloped by lush greenery, until the melody of cascading water guides you to your destination. The sight is spellbinding: a two-tiered waterfall, gushing with life throughout the year, its sound a sweet lullaby against the backdrop of whispering leaves.
After a brisk 1-2 kilometer walk along the hilly track, the full majesty of Badal Giri unfolds. While it beckons with the promise of a refreshing dip or a fun family picnic, caution is advised. The lack of bathing facilities and uneven terrain necessitate responsible enjoyment.
