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.
- It is advisable to visit these waterfalls during daytime.
- It takes a bit of a climb to reach foothills of the waterfall.

Great Place. The water falls straight down and creates a rainbow effect under the sun...Chilling cold.
This a mesmerizing big waterfall. If you have seen the front waterfall there is one hidden in the backside even bigger. Such a nice view. There are eateries, tea coffee, momos, chips available there. The waterfall in itself is something to see and you will not want to come back. Sharing photos
Nice view. You need to walk up to see the real waterfalls. Viewing place is narrow. If another group is hogging the place for photos, you may have to wait for some time
Great experience! One should definitely pay the Rs. 20 ticket to see the inside!!
Great waterfall.. want to spend more time but lack of time we leaved.
