“Nothing great”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Four of us had visited this waterfall in May'11. The place is just 10-12 Kms from the main city. Its like a 2 step waterfall. It has footpath leading to bottom fo fall where it reaches a small lake. Its name, Elephant Falls was given by Britishers coz back then there was a rock by the side of fall which resembled an elephant. The rock was destroyed in earthquake.

“Three stage waterfall”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Upon reaching the hotspotTraditional Khasi dress is rented for taking pictures before you actually goto see waterfalls. Waterfalls is divided into three steps and it is worth going till the last step and feel the water.
