There are three waterfalls here. The main one lies at the bottom and is really beautiful. This place is touristy and one can find a lot of crowd. Go early to avoid the crowd.

Not really a great fascinating fall, perhaps my timing of the visit (Dec) was not apt. It can be ignored as there are better scenic falls in & around Shillong.

This was one of many falls which are there in Meghalaya. And its close to Shillong city so if anyone has a short stay, he can visit this place. The surroundings are clean nd maintained, with public facilities. Good spot for some clickings!!

Yes there is ample space on the way to the falls and near the falls as well. But its better to have your food near the market area. As the fall area should remain clean.
