Heard a lot about Mailung Jharana on social media and I was planning for a long time to visit the place. I had witnessed amazing waterfalls nearby Kathmandu which motivated me to explore this amazing waterfall. Five of us gathered together and took the pickup from Kathmandu and left the city at 6:30 am. We started early as we had to be back on the same day and it was possible to do it if we started early.
It took us tentative 3.5 hours to reach the waterfall and it felt like we were in some movie set of Avatar as it felt out of the world. The waterfall felt larger than life and you could actually stare at it for hours. It was majestic yet dangerous too.
There were so many waterfalls on the way that we lost count of how many we saw. All of them were pretty big and equally beautiful. We reached the popular waterfall that we kept on social media and we went a little bit farther as it was pretty crowded at that place. We found other big waterfalls and spent time in many waterfalls.
We lost our way when we reached the waterfall 1 hour later than expected. We spent around 3 hours over then and then headed back to Kathmandu. We also ate our lunch at Siddhartha Hospitality located at Trishuli. We reached Kathmandu at around 6:30 PM.
The weekends are busy there but since the waterfall is very big, you won’t feel that its too crowded. It is better to go on weekdays if you don’t prefer crowds and want some peaceful time there. It is one of the best weekend getaway for the people who are looking for a quick getaway and recharge themselves.
