The 175-metre high single fall cascade of Duduma waterfall tears through the rugged rocks of the Eastern Ghats and the dark green deciduous forest that is so widespread in this region. It creates an exhilarating scene amidst the rustic greenery right along the border of Andhra Pradesh and Odisha. It is not the conventional tourist spot one usually visits when in Odisha but the beauty of the coastal state does not end with sea beaches and temples. Located around 70 km from Jeypore, Duduma waterfall attracts those travellers who love nature and want to explore places beyond the stereotypical boundary of tourism.
Falling off River Machkund, which shares its name with the local township and gets its name from the pilgrimage site Matsya Kunda near Paderu in Andhra Pradesh, the waterfall smashes into a billion white crystals 574 feet down on the ground. The grandeur is at its full display especially during and after the monsoon. Along with the picturesque waterfall, there is also a hydel power project plant and a customary dam to facilitate it. With prior permission from the authorities, you can pay a visit to the powerhouse and get a first-hand experience of how this alternate source of energy is created.
Altogether, with the stunning natural beauty as well as the scope of scientific exploration make Duduma Waterfall a must-visit attraction site if you want to see the untouched, virgin sides of Odisha-Andhra Pradesh.
