“Spectacular”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

This waterfall is way off the main road between Shillong and Sohra. Make sure you do not miss the turn off just before you get into Sohra.

A long drive along an unmarked road will bring you to a small stream and a little bridge over a river meandering over stones. At the end of the bridge is a sign which announces that you have arrived.

It is all a little mysterious, because nothing can be seen. But if you follow the river then in a hundred or so meters you will be surprised to see it tumbling down into a deep valley.

Then you realize the side trip has been worth it.

“Nature's Canvas”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Cherra...I'd like to call it Sohra, and it is beautiful! Someone has rightly called it the Scotland of the east..
I just had to look around, and behold...colours, rolling meadows, wild flowers,shades of yellow, green, brown everywhere....wonderful! especially the way to Dian-Thlen Falls.

I stayed at the Coniferous Resort, lower Cherra with my family.It is a nice place, good hosts and food is just fine.Its away from the din yet not far if you want to explore around. Cherra is dotted with waterfalls and the treks to the living root bridges will give unique experiences to be cherished for life.

“Dain-Thein Falls”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

This falls is quite at a distance from Sohra Bazar and on the way towards Shillong. After one sees Noh-Ka-Likai Falls, this one appears nothing.

“Meadows and Hillocks..and then the Dain-Thlen falls”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

More than the falls, it is the road to the falls that makes you fall in love with Cherra. And that tells you a lot about the natural beauty along the road to the Dain-Thlen falls.
