Tlabong Jharna or Double Falls or Klibung Jharna by whatever name you know why it is located below Sungsang Para in Ruma Upazila of Bandarban. Its distance from the local village of Bam is about 2.5 km to the south-east. About two hours’ walk from Keokradong, this waterfall is very deep in the forest between Sungsang Para and Thaikshang Para.
Its main difference from other fountains is that it has two fountains. The two streams Pransha or Prangsha (left) and Pankhiang or Pangkhiang (right) Jhiri combine to form two interesting waterfalls.
