Why to visit Drung Waterfall

The Drung Waterfall is a must-see attraction in this region because of the incredible sight of it frozen over. A breathtaking image is created when the falling waters of the fall combine with the chilly waters that flow from the powerful Himalayan glaciers. If you visit during the summer, you may take advantage of the tranquilly and calm of the area while taking in the inspiring sights of the waterfall, the lakes, streams, and all the surrounding greenery. The nearby caves can also be explored, which is a unique experience.

However, as the water freezes while falling and forms massive icicles throughout the winter, the area dramatically changes and the beauty multiplies. During the chilly winter months, the nearby lakes and streams' water also freezes. In addition to a tiny temple close, there are a few shops that sell tea and hot appetisers.
