  • Sirki waterfall : One of the most popular attractions in Pasighat is the Sarki Waterfalls. Photographers and anyone who appreciate the outdoors will be fascinated by this place. Although the waterfall has two levels and both are lovely, most people favor the top-level cascade, which must be accessed by a climb. An hour-long journey along a congested, unpaved, and heavily vegetated trail is required before one can witness the breathtaking vistas of a spectacular waterfall in all of its magnificence. Remember to use sturdy hiking boots, long pants (they might develop a rash), etc.During the winter, the water is undoubtedly clean and chilly, but in the summer, it is not as chilly. A stunning and spectacular sight is the water rushing out and dropping from numerous hundred-foot-high boulders.
