Journey to the unknown

Langsun Fall, Belurghat, Karbi Anglong

Karbi Anglong is fairly unknown to the people of mainland India. It is a little slice of heaven tucked away neatly in a secluded part of northeast India. Langsun Fall is a largely undiscovered waterfall located in Belurghat, in Karbi Anglong. The distance from Guwahati to the Langsun fall is approximately 200 kms by road. It takes around four hours to reach there. Although this place has no electricity, no good roads and more importantly no network, the serene beauty of the place sets your weary soul at rest.

The journey

The people of the nearby village are very generous and helpful. Reaching the fall is a bit tricky though as you have to go through a slightly muddy and slippery road. The fall is 20ft and by its side is a small stream. There is a watch point after which you have to go on foot. There is a small waterway which you have to cross. It is littered with slippery stones which you have to be cautious about when you cross. Then you have to go through a small steep hill which is on the way to the Langsun Fall. After you cross the hill it is just a five minute walk to reach your destination.

The Langsun waterfall

The waterfall is majestic in it’s beauty. Also there is a shiva temple on a nearby hill side which can be reached through a bamboo bridge. A church and a Government school can also be spotted from the hillside. This place hasn’t seen many tourists and so the children from the village are kind of afraid to interact with strangers or click pictures with them. Rain and wind flow is kind of high in the area. The little stream which collects water from the Langsun fall is connected to other waterfalls of Karbi Anglong, the local people say. A lot of broken wooden bridges can be seen in that area. The area near the falls also has a population of wild animals. The landscape is very beautiful. It feels like people are everywhere around the hill area although very hard to spot. There is no accommodation as such, you can return back the same day. And you have to carry your own food with you.  When you go there and see the beauty of the place, the journey is totally worth it.
