“Great possibilities, unrealised.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The falls are beautiful, the story behind it romantic, but the maintenance leaves a lot to be desired. It's a beautiful place that could become a prime attraction of Gangtok but is in disrepair. There are toilets to be cleaned, restaurant to be refurbished, the alternative energy park to be restarted! Even the statues need to be cared for. Tarzan bhai, our guide and driver, had promised that we would enjoy it, I'm glad we found his promise to be true. My daughter and I had a good time. But we hope that the next time we would find this place up and roaring! Best wishes!
