The Chagalkanda waterfall trail is a fairly unfamiliar trail. This amazing trail has large lotus waterfalls. Upstream of the big Kamaladaha waterfall there are again 4-5 large and medium waterfalls. One of them is Chagalkanda Jharna. In the north (towards Dhaka) along the highway from Bara Darogar Hat, a brick will be opened first. You have to cross the brick open and take the first dirt road on the right-hand side. If you go some distance along the road and go down to Jhiri and take Jhiri for about 20 minutes, you will see the lotus waterfall in Jhiri.
Basically, it’s a cascade. Another name of Chagalkanda Jharna is Kamalak Jharna. This 3 step waterfall can be seen only 1 step from below. If you want to see the other 2 steps, you have to go up the fountain. There are many precautions to be taken to get to the top. Very slippery, if a little careless, there is a fear of death with falling limbs. After taking a bath under this fountain, you will be able to walk upstairs in a very cheerful mood. After about 30 minutes of walking, you will see that the path in front has taken the shape of English Y. You will walk on the left-hand side. You will see again that the path has a Y shape in front. Again he will walk on the left-hand side. Thus, one day you will get the 2nd fountain. Whose name is Chagalkanda? Here, before going into the water, check the depth with bamboo or stick.
