Of all the waterfalls and cascades in the rough and fast-flowing rivers of Mizoram, Vantawng Khawhthla or “Vantawng Fall” is the highest and the most spectacular one. Located in Vanva river near Thenzawl, 93 km to the south of Aizawl, it is named after Vantawnga who was said to be an excellent swimmer. So good a swimmer was Vantawnga, so the story goes, that he could hover in the cascading water as some fish do, 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. Mizoram boasts of having the 13th highest waterfall in the country, Vantawng waterfalls. This is one of the major tourist attractions in Mizoram. Watching the waterfalls gushing from a height between the valleys and the dense jungles is a sight to behold. The spectacular view of the Mizoram waterfalls can leave you in trance and give you an unforgettable experience.
