Fancy showering under a freezing cold waterfall? This is the place to be. We jumped in for ten minutes and by the time the body adjusted to the cold, we had to run for our life as a herd of wild buffaloes came.

We went there while the sun was setting, will recommend you to go earlier as it is easier to spot wild animals then if any comes close. In our case we were lucky someone spotted the herd about a 100 meters away and we were able to quickly clear the place.
