Vantawng Fall

#Waterfall in Aizawl

Vantawng Fall is the highest and most spectacular of all the waterfalls and cascades in the fast flowing rivers of Mizoram. It is located in Vanva river near Thenzawl and is named after Vantawng who was said to be an excellent swimmer. So good a swimmer was Vantawng that he could hover in the cascading water like a fish, but unfortunately during one of such performances, a drifting log fell from above and killed him.

The height of the fall is recorded as 750 ft and though it is difficult to get close to it because of the sheer forested hillsides surrounding it, a comfortable viewing tower has been constructed by the Tourism Department.

"Highest Water Fall in Mizoram (751 ft) One of the Tourist Spot in Mizoram... And it's not far from the State Capital AIZAWL (around 140 kms.) And it's a two-tiered waterfall Heres the coordinates - 23°15′25″N 92°45′45″E PS - (FOR ADVENTURE FREAKS) Most people watch the water-fall from a distance and left ..... But it is far FUN to walk down till the river and explore the real beauty of the Vantawng-Fall. Theres an old-route but in some areas you have to find your own track."
