Elephant falls at Shillong is a must visit place during Shillong-Cherrapunjee trip. The water falls into three steps. The falls resembled Elephant and hence it was named so by the Britishers.

One of most popular tourist spots in Shillong - Elephant Falls is a spot with multiple waterfalls in one location. There are plenty of steps that can take you to the base so it is not advised for the elderly.

The three steps falls is well decorated on the outskirts of the city. The First fall is medium sized while second one is tiniest and third one is the largest, Visit in monsoon to enjoy its force.
