About Banjhakri Falls and Park

Wish to take a natural shower? Visit Ban Jhakri waterfall located in a landscaped park, 7 Km from Gangtok city. The waterfall cascades from a height of 40 feet and plunges down with a strong force. Over the water streams, are bridges leading to viewing points that provide opportunities for taking spectacular photographs. Around the waterfalls lies a landscape of themed gardens depicting Jhakri culture. The figurines inside the park depict the rituals and healing ceremonies of the shamans. At the entrance, you find shopping stalls and eating points beside other recreational places.

Historical Context: Ban means 'primitive' and Jhakri stands for 'shaman'. According to Nepali folklore, Shaman is a priest having magical powers who drives away evil and brings good. The Shamanistic practices are depicted through figures in this park.
