I had been hearing from various sources that such a waterfall exists in National Park, of all the waterfalls in National Park that I've seen so far, this one is by far the most remote and hidden. One of my senior friend almost approached this place before and he is the only person had known the presence of this waterfalls. My friend Rajesh Naik and I decided to explore this unmarked region, and proposed the idea to the other four and they immediately agreed.
We walked towards the forest through the barely visible trail suggested by the Forest-Officer and it starts descending steeply. Within 15 minutes, upper stream is visible to our sight a green reservoir surrounded by thick plant life all around.
We made the trail to ourselves in both directions; anyway the trail starts out being moderate and adventures until eventually when we reached stream bed, it became more tough and striking. We followed upper stream for another 30 minutes, within half hour, we reached the top of Paataali waterfalls.
The falls initially slide down from small jump before veiling down the largest drop to the below valley and cascading for the final step from 150 feet height. After the risky attempt I managed to reach base of the first stage and all my teammates joined me.
The view from the top of the waterfalls is absolutely beautiful. It is the perfect getaway and really is immersed in nature. The most unfortunate factor is that due to both the size and shape of the falls - as well as the thick forest in the area - the entire waterfall can not be seen from any one vista until we reach bottom.
