Longphijü (Longphi, meaning big stone slab and jü, water, in Kyong), is located on the south-western part of Wokha town.
The spot is a walkable distance away from the town and is one of the most frequently visited natural sites by the town dwellers for picnic and hiking.
The amazing fact about this gigantic stone Longphijü is its unbroken surface which measures 850 feet long.
Longphijü is a solid piece of hard rock serving as a stream bed at a 35 to 40 degree angle slope.
The visible extent from side to side measures approximately 30 to 35 feet.
Impressive and worth visiting, but the wet portions of the stone surface are dangerously slippery and a slight accident can throw down a person hundreds of feet below at a great speed against the gigantic boulders.
At the end of the lengthy slab is a bowl shaped area big enough for people to waddle around in water.
A beautiful waterfall, measuring about 50 feet in height and cascading down mammoth rocks, one in the shape of a lizard’s head, is located a few distance down Lonphijü. It is a popular location for youngsters who go swimming.
