Taking a break from my longer posts, here is a photoblog... of a waterfall we saw near Pelling...
|This is what you first see when you stop by the road|
|On the side is a smaller one|
|You turn a little and climb a flight of stairs built into the stone, and this is what you see|
|Another view of the main falls|
|Water flowing over the rocks is a pretty sight|
|And, on the other side, the river is a pretty sight too!|
These falls, for some strange reason, are called 'Kanchenjunga Waterfalls', and apparently are a big tourist attraction here. Our driver insisted we see the falls, though we were already running late. Samhith, I must say, wasn't too impressed, having recently visited Jog Falls. But these falls were impressive in their own way, with so much water in winter, and the sheer surprise of seeing the falls just off the road.
It was already getting dark when we reached the falls, which meant that we were the only ones there. We were told that there would have been quite a crowd, had we reached just half an hour earlier! Thank the Lord, I thought, for being late!
These falls are about 28 Km from Pelling, on the route to Yuksom. If you want to see them, combine a visit with a trip to Rabdentse, the Pemayangtse Monastery, and Khecheopalri Lake
