"Must visit"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Dec 18, 2016
Well this place is worth a visit, it's far from Gangtok, hence your travel agent might the not include it in sight seeing.
Visit between 1 to 5.
Food is available inside, so that's relief, because this place is huge.
Very well planned and very well constructed.
Clean.
And the waterfall is just beautiful

"Beautiful falls developed into park"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Dec 11, 2016
Banjhakri waterfalls: is a natural waterfall made into a picturesque park in 2009. The place is normally included in the itinery. Adventure enthusiasts can enjoy para gliding before reaching this place. The place is covered with natural greenery with strategically placed statues well suited to the background. The waterfalls; descending in 3 stages is a view to get your cameras clicking. Overall nice yet nothing special.

"An awesome place"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted May 21, 2016
It is located in Sikkim. It is the awesome place to visit. One can spare his/her time in the peace and under the lap of beauty. The sound which arrives to ear when water from height touches the stone is really the one which soothes our soul. If someone is in Sikkim for the trip, one can visit this place.

"For the beauty of nature"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Apr 30, 2016
We had a brief stay there while returning from ranka monastery. The place is well kept and very beautiful. It is small and can be covered in 40-45 minutes. It is basically a zigzag way made right in between lush green valley with water flowing below which comes from a waterfall situated at the end. The waterfall is a good place to have some with family and friends and to click some memorable pics. We also enjoyed there and after that had some tea and snacks available in the shops inside the place.
