Jaldhaka Valley falls is situated at an altitude of more than 1,500 feet above sea level under the sub-division of Kalimpong in West Bengal. From the Reche La Pass, there is a mountain edge that descends towards the southwest direction that separates this spot from the rest of the district. Moreover, Jaldhaka River or the river De-chu further segregates this pass from Bhutan. This river naturally acts as a border between Bhutan and India. The Jaldhaka River originates in the Himalayas that lie in the southeastern part of Sikkim and flows through places like Jalpaiguri and Cooch Behar, continuing through Mathabhanga, Samsing and Jaldhaka in the state of West Bengal.
The Chapramari Wildlife Sanctuary and the hydroelectric power station in Jaldhaka make this place quite famous. This region is ideal for travellers interested in bird watching and trekking. From Jaldhaka at a distance of approximately 135 km, the town of Kalimpong is situated. On the way to Kalimpong, visitors can get great views of the entire route that leads to Sevok’s Coronation Bridge. Tourists have to make their way through the hilly roads of Garibas, Chalsa and Jhalong.
The town of Jaldhaka is also renowned for its centrally located local bazaar set in a peaceful atmosphere. Tourists interested in shopping can visit this bazaar, where they can take a walk, look at the shops, and buy unique handicrafts made by the local people.
