As you travel around 28kms from Pelling towards Yuksam, you shall come across one of the most transparent waterfalls of Kanchenjunga. These waterfalls are situated at a sharp curve on the road side. Since the density of the flow of these falls remains almost same throughout the year, they have become one of the most prominent attractions of Sikkim. Interestingly, these falls were first discovered recently by a tour operator of Pelling named Topjor Bhutia, in the mid 90s. Since these falls were almost hidden from the road, they could not be located by people who visited this place. It is believed that this pristine waterfall originates high up in the glaciers of Mount Kanchenjunga. Today this spot is being facilitated with tourist amenities so as to promote tourism here. There are small steps which lead to the base of the water fall.
