This waterfall in India does not fall down from the hill but rises upwards.

Water always flows downwards – this is what has been happening since the creation of the earth. But nature challenges the law of creation here. There is a waterfall in the Western Ghats of Maharashtra whose water does not fall down from the hills.

It’s like being surprised. But that’s real! The reason is very simple though. There are no hills opposite the waterfall. That is why the wind from the opposite direction has such a velocity that it pushes the current of the waterfall upwards.





Buddhist cave at Naneghat.

Naneghat in the Junnar region of Pune is said to have been a trade route at one time. The connecting point between the Konkan coast and the plateau of India was the mountains of Naneghat. Originally tolls were collected from traders in this way. That is why the name is Naneghat (the word ‘Nane’ means coin).

The Satavahanas ruled this region till 200 BC. But later this area was covered with dense forest. In 1828, an Englishman named William Sykes was touring the area. And suddenly discovered a cave. Carvings in Brahmi script can also be seen on the walls on both sides of the cave. It was later learned that there were several caves in the area which were used by Buddhist saints. And that inscription mentions Nayanikar, the wife of Satkarni, the king of the Satavahana dynasty.

Needless to say, it would be nice to see history as well as the myths of nature. The trekking route of Naneghat can be reached almost by car. Several trekking groups from Mumbai also take this route.
