Panimur Falls is in North Cachar Hill district of Assam.
The journey to this majestic waterfall is not for the faint-hearted, though. It is a 220 kms trip via Nagaon & Lanka. The road upto Lanka (180kms) is 4 laned but the remaining 40 kms is a bumpy ride, and let’s just say it’s not for those who are afraid of a little dirt. But trust me, the journey is worth it when you reach this paradise.
As soon as you arrive, we could hear the sound of the falls gushing over the rocks, and let me tell you, it’s music to the ears. The place is plain and the falls is a result of the water rapidly gushing over rocks which gives it a milky white colour and the river itself has a beautiful greenish tint. It’s like Mother Nature’s own version of a latte.
If you’re an adrenaline junkie, you’ll love the opportunity to swim in the clean blue water and jump from rock cliffs into the river. But watch out, this place is a popular picnic spot during December and January, so make sure you book your tickets in advance.
Avoid the road on rainy days, though. It’s like an obstacle course trying to navigate through the muddy roads. But once you reach the falls, you’ll forget all about the journey. This place is truly a hidden gem in the middle of the jungle, and it’s a must-visit for nature lovers and photographers.
The closest rail head from Panimoor is situated in Lamding and you need to travel from Lamding to Panimoor via private cars. From Dimapur, which is about 107 km away from the waterfall of Panimoor you can avail rented cabs to reach the place directly or reach Haflong via state buses and then take a private car from there to Panimoor.
