#1 of 14 in Parks in Ranchi
The Dassam Falls (Hindi: दशम जलप्रपात) (also known as Dassam Ghagh) is a waterfall located near Taimara village in Bundu police station of Ranchi district in the Indian state of Jharkhand.

Dassam means ten. Since ages and till today, whenever the waterfall is seen, ten streams of water can be seen falling. Hence, the name is given. The Mundari language is spoken in the area.

The Dassam Falls is a natural cascade across the Kanchi River, a tributary of the Subarnarekha River. The water falls from a height of 44 metres (144 ft).The sound of water echoes all around the place. Dassam Falls at one of the edges of the Ranchi plateau is one of the many scarp falls in the region.

The Dassam Falls is an example of a nick point caused by rejuvenation. Knick point, also called a nick point or simply nick, represents breaks in slopes in the longitudinal profile of a river caused by rejuvenation. The break in channel gradient allows water to fall vertically giving rise to a waterfall.

The water of the Dassam Falls is very clean and clear. It is natural for a tourist to be enticed to enter the water for a bath or swim but tourists are warned not to do so because of the current that is generated.

The Dassam Falls is 40 kilometres (25 mi) from Ranchi on NH 33 or Ranchi-Jamshedpur highway.

  • Awesome place to go with friends and family the beauty seems heavenly although the roads to reach here is very risky and you need to be a good driver to reach safely but every second you spend here is worthwhile. It's has very beautiful waterfall there are separate viewing platforms from where you can enjoy the Beauty of mother nature. Although the rocky areas may be a little dangerous for kids . Many places are already restricted to make it more safe . Parking is available here .
  • A tourist spot. One of the most popular water falls in jharkhand & all over India. So many tourists visit every day in picnic season. Great view & atmosphere. There is high rock both side of the falls. And there is watch point for people to saw the water flow. Hill tracking adventure can be experienced little bit which is enjoyable. Lots of parking lot & stall /shop available. Drinking water, Toilet & bathrooms service available which is driven by the Govt. Mainly During the winter, lots of crowd gathered. People came from all over the place during the picnic season & local people regularly visits there. There are many spot for picnic. Very good destination for group, school, college tour. Overall must visit destination for travel lovers & tourists.
