I had been to Bindu 3 times before. Earlier we were allowed to cross the dam and go to other side which is Bhutan. Now without special permission one is not allowed to go over the dam. But still its an excellent spot where the Jaldhaka river is flowing. We can spend time in the river banks. There are small shops across the road and a military check post on the Indian side. The place is surrounded by mountains and those who have problem in mountain journeys can feel easy while travelling to Bindu. Around 4 kms of road is in dilapidated state else other things are awesome particularly the journey with rubber plantations along the road side.

Now it's not allowed to go to the top of the dam. One can take some nice picture on large rocks by the river. Bhutanese wine is available here in road-side shops, but one must bargain.

There is natural beauty on all sides of Jaldhaka Barrage in Bindu. Bindu is a hamlet which is situated on the Indo-Bhutan border. Bhutan is located just on the other side of the Jaldhaka river. The dam is nothing exceptional. The river was also frail since it was winter when we visited. The place is also littered with used plates, glasses and other sort of garbage since this a popular picnic spot. But beside all these point, I found this place charming since nature is present all around this place with all it's bounties. One can also hike through large rocks and boulders to reach the river below. Also, this place has many small eateries selling momos and thukpa.

A day's drive takes you to this river, where you can see Bhutan on the other side. Its mostly scenery and nothing else.

The place is good to visit if you have not gone to Bhutan. The drive from Samsing is tedious for some distance as the road is not very good at stretches. First you reach Jhallong and then drive another 9-10km to reach Bindu. From here Bhutan is very near and a river divides the countries. The army camp is near the border. The dam is on the River which separates the countries. You are not allowed to cross over the River. People go near the water and enjoy. There are few shops which sell small provisions and Bhutan currency is acceptable here. We spent some time here to look around the place. You will find large number of tourists in Jhallong and Bindu as tourists use it as a day trip from Gorumara or Lataguri.
