Justifying its name, Seven Sisters Waterfalls comprises of seven different waterfalls amicably arranged side by side on a wide rugged cliff which seems distinct when looked at from a distance. This famous waterfall is situated at a distance of 32 kilometres from Gangtok on the Gangtok-Lachung Highway. It appears even more beautiful after rains when it comes to life and offers a captivating view. The gurgling water passes through the green vegetation onto the rugged cliffs and falls on the limestones making a roaring sound. The view of the setting sun pulls the visitors to indulge in a long photography session. With the Tourist and Civil Aviation Department building a waiting shed and a cafeteria for the tourists to refresh themselves and click pictures of this nature’s beauty, the Seven Sisters Waterfalls turn out to be a perfect picnic spot to spend time at with family and friends.

The captivating Seven Sisters waterfall got its name primarily because it falls in seven stages out of which only four steps from the bottom can be seen by the visitors. The rest of it falls way higher and gets hidden between the rocks thereby preventing from being seen. The view of the falling water juxtaposed against lush mountains in the background is enough to make the visitors spellbound making it one of the most visited and photographed waterfalls in the region. This picture-perfect spot is loved by photographers, nature lovers, and picnickers. To give a much better view and photographic break to its visitors, a small footbridge crossing over the stream has been constructed here. Rainy season is the best time to visit the Seven Sisters Waterfalls or when the snow melts as it is during this time that the waterfall comes back to life and is an absolute delight to watch. In case you are planning a trip to Gangtok, do not miss out to include this place in your must-visit places for its remarkable beauty and the incredible location is worth visiting.
