It is known for its epiphenic  beauty on one hand and on the other hand it is very risky to step in the water as it has many  benthic wells acting as death traps for the visitors who could not check themselves from taking extended bath .

The view of Dasham falls  in summer from opposite side – top of the hill.

The dead body remains trapped in these wells and comes  to the surface after  many days.Author has photographed some of these wells  in summer season when water flow is very  slow and some of the wells are visible.
