I hike to the incredible cliff-diving Nachi Waterfall to witness its wild beauty. The Sanjūdō Pagoda in front of the falls creates one of the most beautiful scenes in Japan. The tall waterfall boasts the longest drop in Japan. One can drink the flowing spring water, supposed to have healing abilities, from the falls at the Shrine directly below.
I go for a walk on the soft white sands of Shirahama Beach in Wakayama. The enchanting beach with its sparkling see thru waters make this place a paradise for beach lovers.
I go for a walk on the enthralling cliffs of Sandanbeki, stretching out into the Pacific Ocean. The 50 meters high towering cliffs dating back to the Tertiary period, still stand tall after centuries of erosion. Sitting on the inter-layered limestone rocks, it is scary watching the ocean’s current unleashing wave after wave, crashing up against the cliff. Located in Kii Peninsula, Wakayama, it has the dubious record as one of the most notorious spot on earth for suicides.
In my search for peace in the wilderness, I head out on a trek to Mullayanagiri, the highest peak in Karnataka. With the Bhadra Wildlife Sanctuary only a few kilometers away, the area is rich in exotic birds and varied in wildlife.
