A video of a view of a waterfall from a train is viral on social media with a claim that the video is from the railway route between Koraput and Rayagada in Odisha.

FACT CHECK

NewsMobile did a Reverse Image Search and found the claim to be fake.

On breaking the video down into multiple keyframes and then doing a Reverse Image Search, we found that the viral image was uploaded on a YouTube channel on July 22, 2021, with the title that reads, “Amazing view of Braganza Ghats in Hubli – Goa section – Captured from Brake van.”

Taking a cue from the above video, we searched on Google with appropriate keywords and found out that the same video was uploaded on the YouTube channel of the Ministry of Railways on July 17, 2021, with the title, ‘Amazing view of innumerable smaller waterfalls cascading down the slope of Braganza Ghats Hubli-Goa.’ Hubli is a city in Karnataka.

Ministry of Railways also tweeted the video with the caption that reads, “A slice of paradise indeed! Amazing view of innumerable smaller waterfalls cascading down the slope of Braganza Ghats in Hubli – Goa section – Captured from Brake van amid heavy downpour.”

Thus we can evidently conclude that the viral video is from the railway track in Braganza Ghat between Hubli and Goa and NOT the railway route between Koraput and Rayagada in Odisha. However, the railway route between Koraput and Rayagada in Odisha also has scenic beauty which can be seen here.
