Bogatha Waterfalls – “Telangana Nayagara”

Hi everyone,

Today i’m going to post about a water falls located on the borders of Warangal and khammam districts. This waterfall is located in the forests of Eturnagaram and its is also a tribal area, where we can enjoy the nature as well as traditional culture and the name of the water fall is ‘Bogatha’. Bogatha waterfalls is located in the village ‘Vaajedu’, which is about 145Km from warangal city. This water fall is in the middle of forest and and the water falls from a height of 25 feet to 30 feet.

 

People nearby water falls believe that this water has medicinal futures, because these water starts flowing from the hills located in the Eturnagaram forests, because the flow starts on the top of the hill there are lots of medicinal plants and trees in the forests which may mix with the water flow.

 

Best time to visit this water falls in the rainy season and on the way to this water falls there is a temple named “Mallur temple”, Which is a mysterious temple. To reach the “Bogatha” waterfalls we need to arrange our own transportation and also we need to walk in the forest for 1Km to reach the water falls. road is quite narrow to drive the vehicle in that road to reach the destination. We also travel over the longest bridge which is constructed over the Godavari river and the length of the bridge is 1.8Km long which connects the two states.

That is all for today. In the next post I’am going to reveal the secret about mysterious ‘Mallur’ Temple
