Panchghagh Falls is a waterfall located in Khunti district, Jharkhand.
One of the most unique waterfalls of Khunti. The Banai River branches itself out in five different streams, generating ubiquitous singing rivulets through the cluster of rocks. Natural beauty around the waterfall makes it more beautiful and peaceful. Unlike Jonha and Hundru Falls, Panchghagh’s water does not fall from great heights. Still, one can almost hear the roar of the water when one arrives near it, because all the five branched-out and swirling streams hit the rocks in a very turbulent manner. It’s a treat to watch and hear. In spite of the presence of a large number of high waterfalls in the area, the Panchghagh Falls are a tourists’ preference for being viewed as the safest of all. The water falls from a lesser height, making it safe for tourists to enjoy in the rapid flow of water. Most of the people arrive here for picnic with family and friends. According to plans of the Tourism Department of the Government of Jharkhand, the Panchghagh Waterfalls will soon get a kiosk, a restaurant, toilets, fast food joints, lighting facilities and a watchtower.
It’s a hot spot for picnic in Jharkhand, people from different regions even from nearby state visit the place for picnic. Tourist spot is open for whole year but high time is dorm the month of October – March.
Panchghagh Falls is 14 kilometres from Khunti on the road to Chaibasa. It is 55 kilometres from Ranchi. Khunti is on NH 75 or Ranchi-Chaibasa Highway.
