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.

Clean and a real tourist attraction. I particularly like the way the place was kept. They also had a restaurant which looked clean, however I didn't try it.

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 .
