At a distance of 12 km from Pelling and 5 km from Darap Village, you will encounter a jaw-dropping view of Rimbi Waterfalls.
On the way to Yuksam and Khecheopalri Lake, Rimbi waterfall is formed over Rimbi River. One of the oldest hydropower stations in Sikkim is located close to the waterfall. This power station is the source of energy for most of the villa towns of West Sikkim including Gayzing, Tigjuck and Pelling, established in the early ’70s.

Let’s feel the nature from a bit closer.
“From a distance the waterfall had been like a silent white stream cascading over the rocky outcrops. As they had drawn closer the noise had increased steadily until they were only a few hundred metres away. They could no longer even shout to one another over the deafening roar of the water. Closer still they drew until they were in the plume of water vapour that hung over the plunge pool and in only minutes they were as wet as they would have been in any rainstorm. Their hair clung to their heads and around their faces, but no matter how wet they became, it could not dampen their spirits. They stood in awe.”
