Waterfalls are amazing. The clear water, the crackling sound, and the magical vibe which never fail to make you feel like you’re in a misty dream. We’ve all heard the big names, the ones in far away towns and cities we’re not planning to visit anytime soon.

Don’t book your flights just yet. There are some splendid waterfalls in your own backyard. Check out these eight waterfalls around Delhi you can go to for a weekend getaway.

You’ll need to make a short trek from Munsiyari in Uttrakhand, which is absolutely worth it. There’s also camping and bird watching to be done in the area.
