The last but not the least for sure, Kanchenjunga falls are the most popular in the region. It is very easy to mistake the overflow to be the actual falls, but make sure you climb up the steps on the side to reach up to the main falls. This is the only waterfall that we visited which required a ticket to be purchased. The source of this waterfall is said to be in the glaciers of the third highest peak in the world, the mighty Kanchenjunga. And that is also a major reason for this waterfall to be perineal. You will find a lot of small shacks on the side to refuel your bodies after a hectic day!
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND:
1. All these waterfalls are natural and their flows completely depend on the season during which you visit. We were in Sikkim at the end of October, immediately after the region had witnessed heavy rainfall for a week.
2. Since these waterfalls are along the route, their viewing depends on the route you take, which may depend on the road closures and other factors.
3. The best way to have these falls to yourself would be to visit them at a time outside of the standard tourist circuit.
4. Most of the cab drivers would know the locations of these, so that should not be a concern. But not all derivers plan their itinerary including stops at these falls. Make sure you discuss with your driver in advance and let him know your plan on spending some time at the falls.
Sikkim is no doubt a land of Waterfalls, of all shapes and sizes! So many sights that will be etched in our memories forever.
