You can trek from Ruilui Para of Sajek for two to two and a half hours to see the beautiful Kamalak waterfall. Kamalak Jharna is known to many as Pidam Taisa Jharna or Sikam Toisa (Sikam toisa or Sikam toisha) Jharna. Sometimes it seems like you’re on the right track? Then a huge one. Again, it may seem that there is no fountain in this way at all? Then you have to go down a trail like Jadipai. Jhiripath like Hamham will fall in front. Jhiripath is also impossibly beautiful, I hope you like the adventure. The road is very slippery during the rainy season so be careful while walking. You have to go up and down 80-75 degree steep hills with Jhiripath and wild roads. In this way, after trekking for a while more, you will reach the fountain.
In an hour or two of continuous rain, the mountain ravines are filled with water and there are many currents, large currents that can carry away large trees. The knee-deep water that you have just walked on will be terrifying in one or two hours of heavy rain. The problem is that there are some places in the hills where there is usually no road other than the waterway. If that is the case, then the danger can be understood. Definitely take the guide. If you go alone for the first time, you will not recognize it. And don’t grab some of the locals there. They will take you even if you pay 50 Tk for alcohol. But taking them is risky. Remember that if you want to see Kamalak Jharna, you have to stay in Saje for one day.
