a short walk from the car park, you reach the plateau from where you see the biggest waterfall in Cherrapunjee. though there wasnt enough water during December, yet it is one of the most picturesque sights in Cherrapunjee. one can easily spend a couple of hours admiring the beauty of the place.

The waterfall doesnot have enough water during the dry seasons so it is advised to visit during the rainy seasons else you may be disappointed.

Truly a sight to behold. Itz a 5 Km drive (or walk, if u r up to it) from the market. Don't remember finding a waterfall so beautiful. It was like being in another world. Walked all the way back. Nothing but hills n us. Miss it.

Just want to revisit in June July next year...as this looks so good in Decemeber and can expect a scintillating view in mansoon...just too good yet with a sad story behind the falls.

You get a distant view of the waterfalls from the top.. Not sure weather you can reach the bottom of the falls as there was a way going down (a long long way).. The scenery surrounding it is good.. As we went in january there wasnt much water in the falls, might be more beautiful in monsoon.. Nice place for... More

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
