Kakochang Waterfall, Assam
Kakochang Waterfall is a majestic waterfall. It is truly appreciate the beauty of nature what a beautiful place. Just one look you definitely fall in love with the waterfall. It’s good for a one day trip. Hike on the bamboo covered trails of the jungle, need to pass some mean bridges, pass some small fresh water streams and take a feel of healing cool fresh water coming from the waterfall. There are loots of parking place for cars and buses. bike can go there but sometimes you need to push. Need to walk about 2 km from parking places, not difficult but better to wear shoes to cross the river.
On the way to the waterfall while walking you could find some food stall where you could pre order roasted chicken and pork accompanied by boiled eggs and tea. which is prepared in bamboo tubes and get authentic assamese style food its cheap and tasty too.
Better to go in a group, Sunday and other holiday is quite crowded
If you are looking for a little adventure, Definitely this is the place. there is a another waterfall beyond the first one and if you are courageous enough to climb the straight and stiff hill without any support and plunge throughout the jungle with little more hike you can find it and can enjoy the beauty of the second waterfall.
