The fall is located deep down surrounded by trees and natural beauty. It is truly an untouched beauty.

Pretty falls. Can be viewed from three levels and reaching the third level is requires a good deal of energy & stamina, but to be able to view the gushing falls in full view makes it worth the effort! A must visit..

Location : Reachable from Shillong. Parking : Paid parking available , typical sight like any within the city attractions. Attraction : 3 stages of waterfalls. Broad water sliding across 3 stages. Dark Rock behind the water flow makes it a visual delight along with trees around. Lot of crowd flow makes this place noisy. Quite understandable due to its proximity... More

The fall is a three step fall. Nice to visit but if you have any leg injury or above the age of 50 years shouldn't visit as there are numerous steps to climb.

A popular tourist spot in Shillong. The falls is in three stages and one can go down using the stairs. However climbing up is quite difficult as the steps are quite steep

These are a group of 3 falls. Best time to visit is during monsoon. Requires a little physical activity to see the falls. Worth visiting!
