Amiyakhum Falls

Amiyakhum Falls

The “Nayagra Falls” in Bangladesh is famous as the Amiyakhum Waterfall, located in Thanchi Upazila of Bandarban district on the Bangladesh-Myanmar border. It is known by various names in different regions, including Khumrer Raj, Nafakhum, Amiyakhum, Vela Khum, and Satvaikhum. It is primarily a cool water waterfall in a hilly remote area. Locals refer to it as “Amiyakhum” because in Burmese or Marma language, “khum” means waterfall. However, for the convenience of the Bengali language, it is called the Amiyakhum Waterfall. Additionally, not all waterfalls that never dry up are called “khum.” So even if the waterfall’s water dries up, it is still not called “khum.”

Amiyakhum Waterfall is considered the most beautiful waterfall among numerous waterfalls along the path of the hilly Sanghu River. Even among all the beautiful and mesmerizing waterfalls in Bangladesh, it stands out. That’s why this waterfall is known to everyone as “Heaven of Bengal.” Surrounded by rocky and lush green surroundings, this water stream rushes down from the middle of the encircled mountains with immense force. Its speed is so intense that it creates a white foam of milk-white color.

However, it’s important to note that although it’s suitable for a visit at any time of the year, during the heavy monsoon season when the water of the Sanghu River increases significantly, there’s a risk of flash floods or landslides. Nevertheless, winter is the most convenient time for trekking.

Special Advice
Taking photos without permission from locals is not allowed. Avoid engaging in arguments with locals. Littering such as throwing away wrappers, plastics, and bottles is unacceptable. Since you’ll be trekking in remote areas for around 10-12 hours, try to carry a small bag and light essentials. Bring sufficient water, light snacks, and basic medical supplies. Rovi and Airtel are suitable mobile network providers here. Don’t forget to bring necessary trekking gear. Form a group of at least 6 people for trekking.
