This is a good 15-minute halt if on the way but definitely not worth visiting especially. The falls are good but the water was very muddy.

This is a very famous fall in Shillong and you can enter in the water coming from the hills and can enjoy a lot over here

A beautiful three step fall. There is nothing much to do here. You can just gaze at this nature's beauty. Its is a good tourist spot.But going up and down those steps can be a bit difficult especially for aged people.

I visited this place at 10th september 2016. Tree levels of fall is so picturesque. But little bit hard for aged people. You must come here after laitlum canyon and mawphalang sacred place.

A small falls in several steps very close to the city....not much to do in the area though....just go around in the setting in the midst of woods, click pictures, roam around the quaint souvenir shops and head out

One of the best tourist spot in Shillong. One must come to see the Elephanta Falls. There are three falls.

The biggest plus point is that this waterfall is easily accessible through the steps carved out of the adjoining rocks thus allowing travellers to descend along the sides of the three falls right till the bottom. A very pleasant and enjoyable experience indeed !!!
