Not many visit Gandahati  waterfalls because  of primitive roads

The waterfalls amid forests of sal, blackberry, mango and asan trees add charm to the place rich in flora and fauna. Local people link that place of divinity. The breathtaking view of the wildlife-rich area is most sought-after place for tourists.

Its scenic beauty amidst forest coverage has been attracting visitors from different parts of Odisha, neighboring Andhra Pradesh and other parts. Water crashing down on rocky floors creates sonorous sounds amid serene sylvan setting, which are charming enough for any visitor.

Another major attraction is a beautiful temple present near to this waterfall. With stunning cascades, Gandahati is attracting every tourist for a combination of scenic beauty and waterfall.
