Kakolat (Bihar), May 14 (ANI): Tourists are converging at the Kakolat Hills in Bihar to enjoy the famous waterfall, ignoring the strong Maoist presence.

The tourist spot is located about 33 kilometers from Nawada on the Ranchi road and has faced Maoist threats for long.

Tourists, however, are demanding better facilities and more security in the area.

"We feel good after coming here. This place is fine during the day but as evening approaches, we prefer leaving, as it is a Maoist-infested area. There is also not enough provision for food, as it is a forested area. The government must do something about it," said Roshan Kumar, a tourist.

At the Kakolat Falls, water drops down from a height of between 150 to 160 feet, forming a natural reservoir at the base of the waterfall.

The natural reservoir is an ideal spot for water sports.

Both Indian and foreign tourists come here especially top take part in the Kakolat Festival," said Yamuna Paswan, the caretaker of the area. (ANI)
