Vantawng Falls (called Vantawng Khawhthla in Mizo language) is located in Thenzawl in Serchhip district of Mizoram. Roughly 92 kilometers from Aizawal, the capital town.
This waterfall is named after a legendary swimmer, Vantawnga, who was so skilled in the water that he could hover like a fish in the cascading water. Unfortunately, one day a drifting log took him out, but his legacy lives on in this waterfall.
Located in the Vanva river near Thenzawl, the Vantawng Khawhthla is a whopping 324 feet (99m) tall.
While the waterfall may be difficult to get close to due to the steep forested hillsides, the good news is that there’s a viewing tower that has been built so you can get a bird’s-eye view of the waterfall without risking your life.
The best time to visit Vantawng Khawhthla is from September to January, when the waterfall is in full flow and the surrounding greenery is at its thickest. Just make sure to pack your woolen clothes, because it can get pretty chilly up there.
