We went in May, supposed to be a good time to visit Meghalaya.
The entrance is ₹100 per person. But unfortunately didn’t think this was as good as I was expecting it to be. The amount of water wasn’t impressive. The climb back up is a bit difficult, so people with knee issues should avoid. The steps are high to climb up. Maybe June would be better? Who knows. It did rain heavily 2 days out of the 4 we were there.

Elephant falls are at the outskirts of Shillong. There are 3 falls altogether. The 3rd one is the most scenic.

There are 3 different falls at this place. First one is easy. Next two will require you to climb some steps up and down. Though not slippery still watch out. All 3 waterfalls are of different kind.

It is must in your what to do list of Shillong trip.
Nice water falls, well maintained, good parking place available for cars. Entry fee applicable. Souvenier shops just outside the view point. Steep stairs to reach the view point at the bottom.

It is best to visit the place during the rainy season. I visited this place during winter, hence all the water has dried.

After exploring Shillong city, we landed up at Elephant caves. Its a 3 step waterfall and the steps are high. Generally people don't relish the waterfall at first step and tend to go back but I would suggest to go till 3rd step and enjoy as its the best one.

If you have seen many waterfalls, then this place is no different and looks similar.
There are much better waterfalls in Cherrapunji , in case you are vising that place.

Visited on Oct 1st . Water fall had very nice waterflow . From the parking 1st fall is few steps away and can be reached easily . From there it's bit of a walk to fall 2 & 3 but can be managed. Fall three is the most beautiful. Entry fee of Rs 100/- per head is very high .

We visited Elephant Falls in the morning when there were very few people around. The place is very neat and clean with several souvenir shops outside the gate which sell a variety of items to take home. The first falls is just a small climb and can be viewed by everyone. The second falls are a few more steps down and more like a hidden fall. The third and last falls requires one to climb down steeper steps and is where the falls end. It is a bit difficult to climb up but still comparatively easier than other falls in the region. There was lot of water in the falls and is a must visit place if you are in Shillong.
