Hallstatt _ The Heaven on Earth

The village Hallstatt is such an unbelievably spectacular place that even the Chinese have created a copy of the ancient salt mine village  The most beautiful village I ever visited. It will teach you that "what is the meaning of LOVE at FIRST SIGHT .

How to reach _ If you are planning to do a Euro trip please add this in your must visited list. Better to rent a Car from Salzburg and drive to the most beautiful way to the hallstatt. In our case , since my brother stays over there in Munich, we were fortunate enough to enjoy the BMW to the destiny. 

The place is famous for its oldest salt mine of the World. Adding to that the beauty of Hallstatt enhances more due to the streets of the old city.

Bhimeshwari Water Fall - Hidden divine Water Fall

Location : Kogar Ghat - On the way to Bhatkal to Sagar ( Karnataka)
How to reach : Drive through  Bhatkal -Sagar state highway. After crossing around 25km towards Sagar , you find a board written Bhimeshwar Water fall on left hand side . Park your vehicle at the left side bit off inside the mud road which leads towards the water fall. Since the inclination is not decent please do not forget to apply the hand break before leaving the vehicle. Another option would be to  reach the place by taking the local transport . Buses which goes to Sagar via Kogar ghat could be got you there.

Bhimeshwari Water Fall

After parking  , you need to walk around 1.5 km to pitch the water fall. The real beauty of your visit starts right there from the parking area  . You will get a chance to enjoy the deep forest in . At the same you could  possibly  capture snaps of birds and nature in. 
If you are lucky enough  you might get to have  black tea offered by priest of the temple who stays in that guest house. In case if you are planning to stay there for  the lunch , you need to inform the  priest in prior to make the arrangements. Later you can pay them as per the price mentioned. Do not worry they will not ask for much money . Definitely it will be lesser than your Mec D bill. And the food is delicious trust me.  If you are going to visit the place during Monsoon please do carry some provisions like sugar & tea powder as it is very far from the town. This will be big help for the residence staying there.
After getting refreshed , now this is the time to move towards the beautiful water fall next to the epic rock cut temple. Here I am really confused to prioritize my praising. Not to sure , from where should I start. whether it is the temple which is adding the prior beauty to the Water fall or other way around. During rainy season you could literally watch the water, falling on the tip of the temple to increase the beauty coefficient of it .And it surely reminds you the Gange falling from the Shivas Head. It is Divine at the same time.( Sorry i don not have a right photo to post. Better you visit the place and feel it :) )
Take a round around the temple and enjoy the water fall. But please be safe as it is bit slippery
ohh !! I am really sorry , I forgot to add a spicy topic above this. Please be prepared for the leeches attack  before starting up the trek.  Better to wear shoes and trousers to avoid leech bite.

Enjoy the Divine Water Fall.
