It is a must visit spot in Shillong as it is one of falls which one can seen from very close range. There is continuous flow of water throughout the year but the best time to visit is during monsoon .

One hardly hears of water falls within cities. Shillong has good fortune that excellent water fall is just within the city.

Naturally Stepped Waterfall for Nature Lovers. There are 2 entry points, ask your driver to take you to the gate which has less steps to descend & Ascend.

The place was absolutely crowded with souvenir stalls and loads of tourists and the water falls were not impressive. Much nicer water falls further along the road to Cherrapunjee

Tucked, in, nice and cozy, though you have to climb down a large number of steps. Not a very graet waterfall, but a nice picnic spot, and get the kids in the Khasi costumes. It is a hoot.

The state tourism board has done a good job and the area around the waterfalls and the steps leading to the waterfall are well constructed and maintained. The only disappointment is there are too many shops selling junk food that may cause accumulation of litter.
