Jadipai Waterfall also known in Bengali “জাদিপাই ঝরনাis one of the widest and extensive waterfalls in Bangladesh. It is certainly a decent destination for genuine adventurous to visit. At the time of rainy season, the stream of Jadipai fall becomes more powerful and robust. The water of this fall is so cool and transparent. 

Throughout the way of this range is not so smooth but the way is completely crisscross and some places slender. You will be pleased with the rainy mountain, dazzling beauty of green hill, cool fountains, the zigzag path, hilly roadside, hide and seek game of clouds on the top of the hills. The color of Jhum cultivation is the main scenario of this hill tracts. There are so many waterfalls hidden through the hills of Bandarban would appear in your hiking. After all when you reach there you will feel the tranquility and serenity one desires.

I have visited so many waterfalls in Bangladesh and outside but Jadipai is the most beautiful and magnificent waterfall as per my observation.

Jadipai Waterfall is situated at profound inside the wild and hilly region of Bandarban. It is the most charming and beguiling waterfall of Bangladesh. This waterfall is the Queen of all waterfalls in Bangladesh. I felt that we were moving from the top (Keokradong) to ground (Jadipai Water Fall), it looks like climbing the highest peak then descend from that point to lowest point. If you want to see the regular magnificence of Bangladesh then should visit Jadipai.

From Bogalake to Keokradong, we enjoyed a lot. After reaching Keokradong, we found another world of beauty at the top of Keokradong. Enjoying the fresh wave and rain bearing cloud from the top of the highest mountain was stunning. After half of the day, we took launch at Keokradong and decided to visit Jadipai waterfall. We were 4 in number and well-known guide Belal with us.

Travel from Keokradong to JadIpai Weter Fall
From Keokradong, it took around 2:30 hours to reach the ground of this waterfall. At along these lines traveler will pass the "Passing Para" and "Jadi Para". It was a total downhill trekking and it experienced our mental and physical strength. Amid of our trekking way we took some rest at Passing Para and Jadi Para. According to the local tribal, Jadi means a “flame of fire”.

After most of the hard working downhill trekking, we found a lovely flatland where young tribal are playing football which is very near to Jadi Para. The flatland is surrounded by big mountains and wild forest; it looked like a scene of “Hollywood horror movie”.

On the way to Jadipai Water Fall
Last 30 minute of this journey is truly risky for its vertical and unshaped downhill path. Moving step to step was so hard and horrible. The entire way was covered by different kinds of insects like leeches and others. Hence the tribal do not visit this area very often.

Straight Downhill Path to Jadi Pai Falls
At the very end of this trekking, one of our friend “Brinto” had withdrawn himself not to enjoy the fall due to the straight downhill trekking path. After all, when the traveler reaches the ground level of Jadipai falls he will overlook all the anguish on the grounds that the natural magnificence of Jadipai waterfall is truly stunning and surprising.

Charming View of Jadipai Falls
Subsequent to coming to the base of the waterfall we had an animating shower and took some photographs. Likewise, we have delighted in about one hour around the falls. It’s an exquisite waterfall. The surface of the waterfall is folded and this is the fundamental motivation to make the waterfall lovelier. At long last, the stature of this widest waterfall is respectable as well. At the time to return from the danger area to flatland we were delighted and welcome by a wonderful rainbow over the wild mountain.

It was the little bit unlucky evening for us due to a cloudy sky with slightly drizzling and the time was so short. It was about 3:00 hours of sharp climbing to reach Keokradong. It is truly a dedicated undertaking task. Perhaps this is the purpose behind every individual who has gone to the waterfall don't visit twice.

  3. Hello Zillur, nowadays we can see tourists are like to take the "Chandder Gari" (Jeep) from Ruma Bazar to Bogalake. Than you have to walk. The condition is not so comfortable to use jeep up-to Keokradong. Better, you can contact with the local driver after reaching the Ruma Bazar. Thank you for reading my blog!

  4. Thanks for ur support. See we all r around 50 & we wanna walk only the way from Keokeadong to Jadipai fall. Boga lake to Keokradong may be too much for us & we may fail to visit Jadipai fall. I m gonna talk with somebody at Ruma in a day or two. Thanks once again.

  5. Great! it will be more exciting and troublesome tracking if you want to reach the bottom of Jadipai Waterfall from Keokradong. Good-luck Zillur!
