Noori Chanb Waterfall

Noori Chanb is a gorgeous waterfall situated near Behramgala in Surankote, Jammu and Kashmir. It is about 45 km from Poonch.

Emperor Jahangir had a great inclination to this water fall and named it Noori Chanb after the name of his beloved Queen Noor Jahan. On the way to Kashmir, the Mughal queen took bath in this waterfall; she has got fixed a mirror beside the fall on the mountain wall, where she used to have her make-up after the bath. At present the remnants of the mirror can be seen here.

Dense clouds of water vapour are formed by the fall of the stream that encloses the entire area, which is a beautiful sight to be seen.
