Been there in Aug-weather was nice. Not much crowded. But the falls itself is just ok if you have seen some bigger ones. The roads are very scenic though.

Nice maintained place. Breathtaking view of the falls. You should go down and stand on the rocks to appreciate the beauty of the nature.

Excellent, splendid, picturesque, esplendido ...... I have no words to describe the beauty of this place. But the place lacks restaurants nearby. So take eatables along and enjoy.

When you visit Shillong, make sure you go here. You get to see two falls within a few meters of each other. The place is quite well maintained and the safety measures have increased in the last few years. There is a stairway leading down to the bottom of the falls.
