Located about 15 km from Shillong. You need to go through a pine forest for quite a distance and suddenly you are standing before the falls! You get to see the falls in two or three levels by stepping down steep steps. Excellent location for photography. You may like to sit down on one of those benches and take in... More

It is an excellent waterfall, tall, really tall. There are slightly slippery staircases to go down to the bottom of the fall, where there is a pool. There is ample space for party, bonfire etc. Nice place for outing. The place somewhat closes down around 4 pm. Reach early. Not very safe with women after 4 pm. However, a large... More

We visited the falls at around 2-3 PM. We had to climb down few stairs to reach the falls. One can view the falls from far, it’s not allowed to go near the falls. As there was no one there except us, we spent good time there enjoying the scenery at length.

It is believed by the local people that this fall is haunted. If people go in odd number, they return in even number. The waterfall has also been the subject of the most suicide and deaths in all of the waterfalls in Meghalaya.

beautiful place it is but be careful guys when you visit this place. There is an evil spirit living in this place. This fall has taken a lot of young lives.
