A must go place at shillong . It is just 15-20 km from shillong police bazar. There are 3 water falls in Elephant Falls. Fir viewing the second a d third fall you have to go down 300 steps . For senior citizens it is advisable to skip the second and third falls.

The falls are good. There are some 3 falls. However a lot of walk downhill & uphill, May be inconvenient for older people and young children. Good for pics!

Elephant falls is a must during Shillong visit. There are 3 falls in the premises. Not very tough for young people. Aged people with knee problems will find it difficult in the 3rd falls. Good for clicking pictures too

Elephant call is three step fall and is a good place to visit. It is good though not extraordinary as such. You need to climb down and then up so there is a bit of exercise involved so please plan accordingly

A great attraction comprising of three steps leading to the beautiful waterfall. A great and must visit if you come to Shillong. Be careful during rainy season as it gets a bit slippery!

Series of three falls. Would be heavy during monsoons during winter it was mild. One has to walk down a number of steps to cover all three falls. Better to cover it early morning when it opens else it would be very crowded. Provides scenic view well maintained.

It is well maintained but very commercial. I wouldn't recommend planning a special visit / or a detour for this place. If it happens to fall within the planned routes of your day trip / other plans, then go for it. Takes not more than 30-45 mins. There are a couple of good shops for food outside.
