Of all the waterfalls and cascades in the rough and fast-flowing rivers of Mizoram, Vantawng Khawhthla or Vantawng Falls is the highest at 750 ft and the most spectacular one, located in Vanva river near Thenzawl. The name comes from the local legend of Vantawnga, an excellent swimmer, whose spirit took the form of the waterfall after being accidentally killed in a diving feat. A viewing tower has been constructed where one can watch the falls gushing from a height between the valleys and the dense jungles surrounding the place.
