A waterfall of immense visual beauty is to be found close to
the Tura-Chokpot Road in West Garo Hills district. The stream on
which it is located, flows through a deep, narrow winding bed of
crevice rocks till it suddenly emerges on to a broad wide opening
and cascades in a thick, wide formation, over a broad chasm, creating
an electrifying waterfall of unique beauty. The deep, wide pool
at the bottom of the fall with its wide and expansive surroundings
make it an exciting swimming pool, full of fish of varied size and
colour, besides being an ideal picnic spot.

a deep valley, the mass of water dissolving into misty sparks.
