Believe it or not, Naneghat has a reverse waterfall, where water flows against gravity. The Naneghat waterfall is a natural wonder. It is a gravity-defying waterfall and can be seen from the road as well as from the trekking path.
The Naneghat Waterfall is also called ‘Reverse Falls’ due to its unique appearance. The water flows down from a height of 130 feet and then flows back up on itself, creating a swirly pattern all along its path. The reason for reverse waterfall is that the air is too strong in that direction and it flows back against the flow of water and it makes it look like that water is falling and going upwards against gravity.
