      Waterfall in dry state is a treat to eyes

      I've been to Bhimlat waterfall in 2012 & since witnessing that amazing waterfall, I had heard a lot about menal waterfall being bigger & more amazing than the former ! Although, I was searching for an opportunity which came around in November 2014 ! However, it was a business trip to bhilwara & while returning to Jaipur we picked our way through ladpura & then picking up the nh-76 (from chittorgarh) ! After traversing not much distance from ladpura we had lunch in menal resort ! The place is so awesomely built over the hills ! The visitors can consider themselves lucky to have best seat in town to witness the waterfall ! Though the waterfall had allDried up because the rainy season had ended up ! Hope I would get more opportunities to visit this place in coming time ! What I didn't like about the resort was that they had some exotic bird in their campus poorly kept & not being feeded properly ! Apart from that the place is superb & food too !
