Jana Waterfall, Manali Overview

Jana Waterfall is located in a quaint village named Jana in the transfixing valley of Manali. It is a natural waterfall and a famous attraction which is a favourite picnic spot and is often visited by people residing nearby to escape the chaotic city life. The scenic beauty of the region under clear blue skies and fresh air is hypnotic. One has to trek to the waterfall through dense deodar and pine trees amidst snow-capped mountains. Jana Waterfall is a must visit for nature lovers and photography enthusiasts.

Jana Waterfall cascades from a height of about 30 feet and its presence in the dense flora is a surprise for many. The climb is easier compared to many others in the region and can be completed by beginner level hikers too. The sound of the trickling waterfall amidst the chirping of the birds calms any soul entering the area. There's a wooden bridge laid perpendicular to the direction of Jana Falls which trekkers use to walk across. There is seating arrangement also around that is often used by tired souls to rest for a while before they return.

Best Time to Visit Jana Waterfall

The best time to reach Jana waterfall is between September and June which is the winter season in Manali. The temperature drops immensely during this season making the trek a little challenging. March to May is summertime, and June is the onset of monsoons. The days are pleasant throughout, and the water in the waterfall pool is a decent temperature for tourists to take a dip. The region is susceptible to landslides during monsoon. It is highly recommended that tourists avoid exploring the waterfall during monsoons.


1. Tourists can reach the waterfall on two-wheelers although it is not recommended as the region has a rugged and rocky landscape.
2. Some stalls near the waterfall sell local snacks. A piping hot plate of Maggi and a nice hot cup of chai is a must-have here. Picnickers can carry snacks and beverages along with them if required.
3. Wear decent trekking shoes as the trekking trail is rocky and uneven.
4. The electricity is cut off in the area after 7:00 PM. So, make sure to return before.
