About Kanchenjunga Falls, Pelling

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.

Kanchenjunga Falls, Pelling Reviews

  • I was expecting a majestic waterfall but to my surprise it felt like a stream of water. Maybe it wasn't the season to go and watch the fall but I am not really amazed by it. Honestly there were a lot of falls on our way to Kanchenjunga and they seemed more beautiful due to their untouched nature

  • Beautiful place.. This is the perfect place for nature lovers.. Near Pelling it's a very nice place. It's awesome.

  • Extraordinary waterfall. You'll feel something here. It'll be more beautiful if you can go just near the waterfall. That roar is beautiful.

  • Melt waters from Kanchanajuenga make a perrinial stream and falls. Adventure sports like Zipline and rope walk are available, not the cleanest of surroundings but acceptable. The small eateries near the entrance make it little shabby, but the falls itself is nice. Can spend some time in the water with family and children.

  • A great place to unwind in the Nature for tourists to Sikkim...! A great place with lovely perennial water falls from the nearby Kanchanjunga. For the adventurous, there is a Rope way; but be prepared for heavy rush and queues. A very nice place to spend time with your companions in Serene surroundings...
