Jang Fall, Arunachal Pradesh

Jang Fall (also known as Nuranang Fall), about 100 metres high is located in the Tawang district of Arunachal Pradesh, India. Situated at a height of 6000 ft above sea level, it is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in India. Due to its relative anonymity, few travellers know about it. The waterfall is located about 40 km from Tawang town. It lies some 2 kilometres away from the town of Jang on the road (1 km from main road) connecting Sesa Pass and Tawang after crossing Jaswant Garh.
The Nuranang river originates from the Northern slopes of the Sela Pass. It forms the waterfall before plunging into the Tawang Chu (Tawang River).
What a sight it is! The spectacle of huge volumes of milky white water hurtling down into the river below throwing up sprays upto several ft high provides an exhilarating experience. There is a small hydel plant located near the base that generates electricity for local use. You can trek down to the base of the falls and visit the plant.
It is said that this is the waterfall that features in the song ‘Tanhai Tanhai’ from 1997 Sharukh – Madhuri film ‘Koyla’.
Jang falls is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered in one of the lesser known and remotest parts of the country.
