“Awesome view..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Shillong itself is a very beautiful place. We enjoyed the cold winters during x-mas, 2012. It was freezing cold with very strong wind. Day time is a bit hotter. Elephant Falls is a must see if u r in Shillong. Very beautiful and u can see it from top and also from the bottom. A photograph with your beloved one, in front of the Fall, is a must.

“Unique falls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

The Elephant falls are divided into 3 parts. The most beautiful of the three is the 1st falls. The flow of the water is unique and I dnt think I have seen such a fall before. The water falls down in small gushes on several rocks. The 2nd falls is ordinary. The 3rd falls, though not in the league of the first one, is certainly worth the effort of climbing down quite a number of stairs

A must visit if in Shillong.

Word of caution: There a few steep stairs to encounter in this attraction. Will not recommend for old or unfit guys.

“Just one word: Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

It was just very beautiful. We went there when it was raining and it just added to the experience. Wish they would let us sit in the water till whenever we wanted, as it was very soothing and calming experience.

“nice palce”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

As any other place in Meghalaya this one too is abundant in beauty and greenery but be prepared to sweat it out to go down the steps .
