Nuranang Falls – A Terrestrial Extravaganza

Nuranang Falls – A Terrestrial Extravaganza

As our vehicle gyrated through Jang’s sinuous roads, the sound of gushing water turned deafening and sufficiently stood out for us to be sure about our destination. Our driver, Amit Gurung was the first to get out of the vehicle and walk towards the sound. I followed him.

One look at the milky white waterfall, and I was startled. It indeed was one of the most magnificent waterfalls I had seen so far. Falling off from a height of more than 300 feet, the waterfall was a trivia until this location was used for filming of a Bollywood flick named Koyla.

The greenery surrounding the valley is stunning

Fed by several lakes and streams, the waterfall lands into Tawang river, making the valley a sight to behold. Mist had cleared off just when we reached and the dewy leaves shone bright against the sunlight.

The small hydel power station located just beside the base of the waterfall suffices the need of electricity to the locals of surrounding area.

I enjoyed clicking few pictures of the places nearby since the beauty of the place had amplified due to sudden showers the previous night.

Many such tiny flowers had covered the surrounding area
