Info. About Devkund waterfall:
Devkund Waterfall is a virgin place with clear water. It is the s confluence of three waterfalls and is said to be the origin of Kundalika River. It is about a two hour trek from base village along the dam backwater and through forest to reach this place known as ‘Devkund’. A major part of the trek goes through some semi-dried forests with the river running parallel and sometimes crisscrossing through the route. A guide is required to be taken during the trek as there is dense forest around.

Can stay in tents, there are campsites at the base village, Bhira. Few home-stays are also available at the Base village. Farmhouses are also available but 10 km from Bhira. Good hotels are a few kilometres away from Bhira village.
During the monsoon the water volume increases very quickly due to the design of the hills, so it is unsafe to see the waterfall. There are couple of accidents & death has happen of trekkers in monsoon period. So it’s good to visit in June when there is just start of rain and from Sept to Feb which is the best time.
Additional Info not available in Wikipedia :
It is now compulsory to take Guide from the Bhira Village, due to some accident happen & dense forest, which will be around Rs. 50 to 100
It’s now become a commercialized zone, so there are many stay arrangement are started and few shops can be seen on the way to the waterfall.
Carry extra pair of cloths & blanket to the waterfall, due to the V shape of valley the sunlight is less on the waterfall which make the water icy cold.
It will be best to travel with Private vehicle because the local transportation is very less and not well connected to reach Bhira Village
