Lodh Falls is the highest waterfall of Jharkhand and the 21st highest waterfall in India. Lodh Falls is also known as Budha Ghagh because of the presence of a temple of Lord Budha near.
Lodh Falls is located on the Burha River, deep in the forest of the Latehar, Jharkhand. Latehar is known for its adventure tourism. Latehar has a huge deposit of minerals and is also rich in forest resources.
One of the unique features of Lodh fall is that it has multiple drops, falling from both sides of the hills, one after the other within a short distance. It is 143 metres high. The thundering sound of the fall is audible even 10-15 km away.
Lodh fall was the favorite destination of British Laat Saheb (high officials). They often used to visit the fall for relaxing. The Lodh Falls is an example of a nick point caused by rejuvenation. Knick point, also called a nick point or simply nick, represents breaks in slopes in the longitudinal profile of a river caused by rejuvenation. The break in channel gradient allows water to fall vertically giving rise to a waterfall.
The best time to visit the Lodh fall is in the month of August i.e during the monsoon when the water level is high. Otherwise, for a picnic, the best time to visit is during winters i.e in the month of December to February. The entry to Lodh Fall is free.
Lodh Fall doesn’t have timing as such. It is open for 24 hours but it is best to visit it during day time. Avoid going to the fall after sunset as it is located in an isolated place.
