“Day trip from Varanasi”

Chandra Prabha Wildlife Sanctuary
Reviewed 19 October 2012

This trip can be done as a day trip from dusty varanasi city for a big change! how i reached there? details given below. You can DIY (do it yourself)

ChandraPrabha Wildlife Sanctuary is located in Chandauli District, in the south eastern part of U.P., between Chakia & Naugarh. [ 70km from Varanasi ]

Deo Dari & Raj Dari water falls is the main attraction.

How to Reach or go there: After so much research i found this. hope it will help you. First is cheapest way in which i visited.

1] Take tuk tuk (rikshaw) to Varanasi railway station.
2] From there i went to Mughalsarai by bus.
3] From Mughalsarai took a shared jeep to Chakia.
4] From chakia in some distance you'll get another jeep by asking for Raj Dari Jharna [Raj Dari waterfall ] There people failed to recognize the place called "chandra prabha wildlife" :)
5] Jeep will reach near gate, from there i walked 3 km! Yes...there is no other option even if u have money. So total 6 km :) Total 4 hours to reach there.
Buses are rare to see, after 5pm jeep will not be there...Jeep is over crowded and i was hanging outside to reach chakia after my visit to the falls.

If i want to go there again, I will never go in the way i went..Even i suggest you to hire a private cab and go there. which will take 2 hours.

This waterfall is worth a visit. I almost stopped looking at jeep crowd. However, i forced myself as i was already traveled around 55km to visit that place. As i reached that place i said wow! it looked like a mini Niagara falls.

Some suggestions:
Take bath towel and dress as you can swim or have bath on upper side of the waterfall. Also take some food in packet.

As of today 30th Sep 2012 Entry Fee Rs. 50 for Indians, Rs. 600 for foreigners!

For snap of it just goto [--]
