The name of the waterfalls stems from a tragic love story. The legend said that a village chief had a beautiful daughter who fell in love with the son of the neighboring village chief. They promised to be together, but the man joined the army to fight invaders and died in battle.

The girl came to the mountain where they had promised each other and sang a sorrowful song. She kept singing until she could not stand up any longer. A herd of elephants nearby heard her singing for a long time and then turned to stone. Suddenly there was a loud explosion that split the mountain into two, and water rushed off it.
