If you’re a nature lover but have never been in an authentic wildlife setting such as the ones depicted in popular franchises like Tarzan or The Jungle Book and have also not enjoyed yourself amidst the distant hooting of birds, the serene flow of a waterfall along with the wide expanse of green canopy away from the noise of civilisation, then these waterfalls should be your next destination. At a distance of about 90 km from Varoda in Gujarat, Zarwani Waterfalls are amongst the most sought natural destinations in India.
The best time to visit Zarwani Waterfalls is in months of November to February. The temperature in these months is within the range of a moderate 20 to 30 degrees. Visiting these falls in the summers is inadvisable as the heat and humidity make it unpleasant to trek and picnic in the forests.
By Air: The closest airport to Zarwani Waterfalls is the Baroda (Vadodara) Airport, which is 97 kms away, approximately a two-hour journey.
By Rail: It should take about 2 hours and 30 minutes to reach Zarwani Waterfalls if you are at the Vadodara Railway Station. If you are travelling from the New Delhi region, the station should also be connected to remote areas like Ratlam and Mathura. Train journeys also give you a closer view of the destination as well as the areas surrounding it.
By Car or Bus: For locals of Vadodara itself, travelling to Zarwani Waterfalls should not be difficult. Both the nearest airport and railway station are in this city - which is 90 kilometres away from the falls. The destination is 28 kilometres away from Rajpipla. So if you are travelling in a car or the bus, you will pass through the National Highway-8, which is also linked to major cities such as Mumbai and New Delhi. The main attractions themselves are not too far from Zarwani Waterfalls, and some of them are even on the way to the falls. This makes navigation a lot easier.
1. You should look out for slippery rocks as they might have water running through them and will make it easier to lose balance. It is best to avoid these if you are near the waterfall.
2. Smoking is prohibited according to the visiting rules in the waterfall and forest area.
3. Use the electricity there mindfully - as it is actually generated by solar energy and you do not want to run out of it in case of emergencies.
4. It is advisable to wear sports shoes as there will be trekking involved.
5. Try and carry lighter luggage as you do not want to drag around a heavy bag.
6. You must get permission from the Forest Office to visit the waterfall.
7. Depending on the area that you are in, using flash photography and disturbing activities like playing loud music may not be allowed or encouraged.
