In the North Cachar Hill District of Assam, there is the waterfall of Panimoor which is a famous tourist spot. Situated about 120 km away from Haflong, the Kopili River is obstructed by stones, but yet it turns into a gushing milky white waterfall at this spot called Panimur and is indeed an ethereal beauty. The panoramic view of the scenery attracts a number of nature lovers and photographers into this place. There is a Forest Inspection Bungalow in this place, which can house a few tourists but needs to be booked in advance, especially in the tourist season. Panimoor is the only hill station of the district, and thus, favoured by a number of tourists, especially during winter and spring. The Panimur fall also causes flood in the lower lands during the monsoons.
The Kapili River has been referred to as the “happy damsel” in a song by the great Assamese singer Bhupen Hazarika. However, the Kapili River shows its wildest best at the spot of Panimoor. There are other places of interest nearby such as Maibong and Umrangso, which too attract tourists.
The closest rail head from Panimoor is situated in Lamding and you need to travel from Lamding to Panimoor via private cars. From Dimapur, which is about 107 km away from the waterfall of Panimoor you can avail rented cabs to reach the place directly or reach Haflong via state buses and then take a private car from there to Panimoor.
The best time to visit the Panimoor fall is during the autumn and early winter and spring.
In the winter the place becomes quite cold, and the flowing waterfall is somewhat reduced. While in autumn the fall looks best. Spring also is comfortable in the area, with the temperature remaining comfortable. Summer can get hot, and the water dries down to an extent, while during the monsoon, it can get devastating. Thus it is better to avoid late summer and monsoon season in the spot.
