The scenic and picturesque tranquil fish sanctuary Sahksaw is located at Cham Cham village at a distance of 700 metres from the PWD road. Downstream, it is connected to the Rynji Falls and upstream it meets the Myntdu River. It is one of the best destinations for boating activities in East Jaintia Hills as the river meanders slowly and is wide along its breadth. Sahksaw is surrounded on both sides by lofty hills and catchment areas providing fresh water to the river and an abundance of fish.
