There is nothing to dislike about this, you will simply love what you see.....We had hired a Cab from Guwahati only, so the journey was quite comfortable for us, however there were landslides here and there.

The waterfalls are associated with the tragic story of a local woman of similar name. The view from the viewpoint is great, with falls roaring down even in the dry season. I imagine it would be stupendous during monsoons!! One of the highest waterfalls in the country, a good option to visit if you are in Cherrapunji

We visited Cherrapunji in February, away from the monsoon season; however even then this place was a beautiful sight. It is a long climb downstairs to reach close to the base of the falls,however the effort is worth it. The roar of the waterfalls can be heard from quite some distance. Great place for photo sessions, need to come during... More

Despite the fact that you can't go close to the waterfall the view from the viewpoint is amazing. There are a few stairs that lead down. You can try those if you boat about your stamina. Need to be a little patient as clouds might block the view anytime.

Beauty - even at long shot. Not possible to go close to the waterfall, but from the distance itself, you can admire the scenic beauty of the nature. The tourism department should promote such places, specifically for movie makers, who always loves to shot abroad, ignoring the beauty lies within INDIA.

Had visited late in the day when the place was about to get closed, so was deserted. It was one ofthose rare days in the year when it doesn't rain. The place is beautiful.Since the visit was before the monsoons, the fall was almost like a trickle. There are shops at the enterance for a quick chai and snack. There... More

Awesome waterfall which falls in one drop. This place is amazing and is covered with clouds almost all the time. You will feel like walking upon the clouds. There are some shops which sells local handicrafts, dont forget to buy some. You need lots of energy to walk down the steps to take a closer look at the falls. Amazing... More

The story of the naming of the falls is heartbreaking. The area needs a bit of love and care. People throwing trash is always a negative feature!
