If you visit Shillong then you should not miss this attraction. Situated few Kilometers away from Shillong and this place reminds you of nature's beauty. One may go with family to enjoy this waterfall.

It's a simple fall but the surrounding is really beautiful. You need to walk a little to reach to the actual spot. Can be a difficult walk for senior citizens

Yes there is ample space on the way to the falls and near the falls as well. But its better to have your food near the market area. As the fall area should remain clean.
