Panchghagh Falls is 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) from Khunti on the road to Chaibasa. It is 55 kilometres (34 mi) from Ranchi. Khunti is on NH 75 or Ranchi-Chaibasa Highway.
Here the water does not fall from a height as is typical of waterfalls, but the Banai river branches out into five rivulets, dancing and gurgling through the rocks, thereby providing a unique experience of sight and sound. It’s safe for families and children, can be easily approached by car from Ranchi in a day trip.
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.
