  • Best time to visit Dassam Falls is post-monsoon. Discharge will be higher during that period. However, Dassam Falls cannot be covered along with Johna and Hudru. Dassam Falls lies on the opposite side...  more »
  • Avoid on public holidays Crowded is an understatement Beautiful falls would have been awesome amazing when crowd is less 
  • This is a very romantic picnic spot. Must go on for couple. Must go in Dec-Jan. Don't mess with under water rocks. These are extremely slippery and dangerous. Be safe.

  • A place to die for. Separated from the busy scheduled lives of city, this place is a nice getaway. Friendly locals make the environment even better. The beauty of water falling in a very single spot from all around and the roar of water brings you close to nature. JUST BE CAREFUL as the beauty is also dangerous. Happy JOURNEY
  • Formed on the Kanchi river, they are also know as Dassam Ghagh. The water splits in 10 streams and falls from a height of about 45m.
  • Beautiful waterfall on Kanchi river with lot of greenery around. Famous picnic spot but a bit dangerous as many lose their lives by drowning here.
  • The heaven on earth can be seen at Dasham falls picnic spot. When you arrive here you can not stop yourself by not doing any fun. At the time of New Near everyone's fist liking is this fall to have wonderful year ahead. The gravity of water is so beautiful that one loves to spend hours and hours watching that.
  • "Dassam Falls" means Pure Bihari Water Falls (From 2000 AD Jharkhandi)
