At the entrance of the falls, there are various shopkeepers selling handicrafts and beverages. There are three stages to the falls and each stage has steep steps to climb up and down. However, it is worth the view.

A must visit place of Shillong. The falls is spread through 3 layers and has a history as well. There are handicraft shops and food shops also.

Amazing pace during rainy season and in winter, if you can go towards the feet of the waterfalls its a great place to get a little wet and have fun - just be sure-footed of the slippery rocks. Awesome place to visit.

This falls is divided into 3 stages of falls. The steps to climb up and down are pretty steep but when you manage that, the views of the falls are definitely worth it.

We visited this place on our way from Shillong to Cherrapunjee. One has to cover a lot of steps to enjoy the full beauty of the falls. The main falls is extremely beautiful and has natural surroundings.

Its easy and popular place for all to enjoy 3 level waterfall. one has to take few steps here. But you can not enter in waterfall, just can take pics from side. It wont give vibes of open natural pools like other waterfalls in Sohra.

Ka Kshaid Lai Pateng Khohsiew (or "Three Steps Waterfalls") is the another name of Elephant falls. It is a good tourist place to spend 15-20 minutes. Not worth it to reserve a taxi for this. Meghalaya Gov tourist package of Bara Pani Lake covers it...More
