Amazing waterfall. First day at 4.30 pm Hired a taxi about 500rs and went their I reached at 5.00pm. Also went to Shillong peak view point. Elephant's fall has 3 layers. lower layer are the most beautiful indeed

It is basically three tier fall. The lower most level is most beautiful. One has to climb down three levels and then climb up again. But it is fun.

Before I visited here, no one told me/ neither I ready anywhere that this is a discontinuous three level fall. Certainly not a place to be missed. Can be even done on your way to Sohra/ Cherrapunjee

We reached the place and bought tickets. There are 3 water falls. The bottom most one is most beautiful. Remember that you have to climb back 180 steps after seeing 3 Rd fall. Not advisable for elders.

This is the first spot around Shillong.One has to climb down 50-100 steps to reach the waterfall. One has to pay parking and book ticket

After having visited the spellbinding Sacred Grove, this fall failed to create a lasting impression but yeah it’s on the way to Cherrapunji so why not just visit for a tick mark activity!

Amazing waterfall with heavy water going on...view was fabulous..a must visit place..but we did not enjoyed it much because it was the last waterfall which we had visited in our journey, so we were just bored of seeing waterfalls
