“Nice...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Its a good place to visit but only after the rainy season. Otherwise it will be dry and you might not enjoy it. Also you need to be ready to climb down & up flight of steps.

“Beautiful Fall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

There are lot many high steps. Please wear flat shoes to walk. The walk to the fall is pretty nice and the fall too is beautiful, but please be prepared to walk down and up the high steps. There are local costumes available on rent and pictures can be clicked. It was fun trying out a tribal dress and clicking pictures.

“Elephant Falls”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Good tourist spot,but there are more beautiful waterfalls all over Meghalaya and if the tourist are willing to spend a little more time and find a good guide then there are much more places to visit.


Personal opinion.

“Elephant Falls”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

The Elephant Falls is nothing spectacular to write a review on. Perhaps when we visited this month the water level was not gr8 hence the flow was very low.

There are lots of other waterfalls in Meghalaya which you would come across during your journey
