Jung Falls: A Sensational Setting!

Remember the Bollywood movie ‘Koyla’ starring Shahrukh Khan and Madhuri Dixit. Many of the movie scenes were shot in the Tawang district of Arunachal Pradesh. One such scene was shot at the sensational Jung Falls.

The Jung Falls is located about 35 kilometres from the centre of Tawang city and about 3 kilometres from the town of Jung. Jung is the valley that lies between Sela and Tawang. The current Chief minister of Arunachal Pradesh, Dorjee Khandu belongs to this town of Jung.

The Jung Falls, which is fed by alpine lakes and snow streams tumbles in multiple steep steps into the river below from an appreciable height. And everything around the waterfall is dense green adding to the beauty of the waterfall.


When I was here recently, the waterfall looked fairly strong to me, but the locals mentioned that this waterfall swells with water during the monsoons and is a sensational sight. I would love to see that sight live one day.

The waterfall, the hill stream below it, the surrounding greenery and the Himalayan mountains make this waterfall a great place to visit. No wonder, Jung/Jang Falls is ranked as one of the best waterfalls of Arunachal Pradesh.
