After reading the title, many people say 'who are you to tell me what to skip? and let me visit & decide'. Certainly, it's personal choice. On that lines, it's also not required to suggest you places to visit around a place. If this thought comes to you mind as well and you don't agree with such suggestions, I would say - just pause here and make best of your time. But if you stick around, just focus on why we say it's not a place to consider when you are in Sikkim.
I started doing this series on 'places to skip' and getting pretty good response and this told me that people don't even search places to visit on Google, but they also care about saving their time by skipping places which are not worth for them or don't align with their choices. I have seen readers who chose to visit the place instead of skipping because reasoning given in the post by us convinced him that place aligns more with his kind of vacation. So it varies certainly.
So the name says Banjhakri Falls and you would certainly expect a waterfall here. It's much more than a waterfall or I would say it's more of a commercial park than a waterfall. And sikkim has plenty of natural waterfall and that too of varies scales. There are various things built inside this park but nothing really exciting for kids. It's more like some backgrounds to get clicked and some shops where you can have some snacks. Some constructions was still in progress so probably there are more plans to expand it. To me it was more of a park than a waterfall.
So certainly this place didn't feel a right fit for my & Vibha's itinerary. It's also an overcrowded place which are certainly not my preferred places anyway.
Since we were inside and we had paid reasonably money for entry, I thought of clicking some photographs at least. And these photographs are helping me to compile this post :). btw, there is entry fees of 50 rs per persona and vehicle parking is extra.
Without saying much about the place, I would like you to see these photographs to get a sense about things to expect inside. And do feel free to check out reviews about the place. Interestingly it has 4 rating on Tripadvisor.
