Road to Bhimlat Waterfall, Bundi, Rajasthan
Royal Enfield Thunderbird Twinspark motorbike was ready as well as Ashok ji â€“ The guide and we driving towards Bhimlat Waterfall via Khooni Chauraha, Ramnagar, Neem Ka Kheda, Gudda, Jhopadia villages.
Because there are numerous accident happened in past Chittor Road Chauraha is locally named as Khooni Chauraha. Anyways, while passing through not that good road condition but not that bad too crossing railway gate and railway line once by motorbike and once walking we reach Bhimlat Waterfall.
In short after crossing Chittor road chauraha approx. 34 km you have to drive straight. Once between you have to cross a railway gate and then few km drive and a display board on the right side indicating a right turn for another final 2 km for the waterfall.
There is a railway line just before the waterfall the same one that you crossed during journey. Either you stop your motorbike/vehicle before the railway line and cross and walk to reach Bhimlat Waterfall or there is one more left side concrete road that reaches across the railway line but again after crossing railway line you have to drive vehicle within rocky path to reach waterfall. It is up to you. I guess four wheeler driving after the crossing is not that possible. You know I have been to Bhimlat Waterfall twice. Once I parked the motorbike just before the railway line but next time when I was there I follow the left side road to cross railway line to reach waterfall.
Taxi/own vehicle the only option to reach Bhimlat Waterfall. And not to forget there are approx. 220 stairs downwards to reach waterfall.
I started Royal Enfield Thunderbird Twinspark motorbike from Bundi at 1:20 afternoon hours reached Bhimlat Waterfall at 14:30. That means Bundi to Bhimlat Waterfall is approx. one hour journey. Yes, I have to stop at railway crossing for few minutes because it was closed. Road condition OK.
Bundi to Bhimlat Waterfall Distance by Road is approx. 38 km.
It is said Bhimlat Waterfall was created by Bhim â€“ Pandavâ€™s brother. Once Kunti â€“ Pandavâ€™s mother felt thirst at this location. His son Bhim hit the earth with leg with such force that earth divided into two parts and water came out.
If you remember before Bhimlat Waterfall visit I visited Shri Durgaprasad Mathur ji â€“ Historian to know more about Bundi as well as waterfalls around Bundi. I was told Bhimlat as well as Menal waterfall happened due to 8th century earthquake. Bhimlat is about 100 feet deep from the land-area and Menal approx. 150 feet. Menal is approx. 70 km from Bundi. There is 8th Century temple at Menal. It is said earlier tiger used to walk within Bhimlat area and people watch from the top as tiger was not able to come on top. Then later stairs was made and now tourist and locals visit.
And Lord Shiva temple. Shivling is said to be since Pandavâ€™s era as told by Shri Kanhaiya Lal â€“ Bhimlat temple priest. Water directly from the mountain reaches Shivling via Gaumukh built few years ago. Earlier there was only Shivling and four pillar Chhatri.
Twice I am watching this only within Bundi. At Rameshwar and now Bhimlat. Amazing. Prayers.
Wheat Kernels were given to Ashok ji by the priest. Ashok ji closed his eyes for prayers and after few minutes watching how many wheat kernels in hand. Upon query knowledge was enhanced by the priest – 5/7/9/11 wheat kernels if in hands considered as auspicious and wishes will be fulfilled – old saying.
Tendu, Charel, Gular, Arjun Ka Ped waterfall is surrounded by lush green trees. There is a dam close to Bhimlat Waterfall. A huge natural lake close to waterfall and the lake water reaches Bhimlat via Dam. Swimming or entering within the lake is strictly prohibited because crocodile and many other water animals inside the lake.
