We visited this place with young kids. It was refreshing and nice. The water was very clear and clean. We went down and had good time but later stuck there due to sudden rainfall . But we enjoyed a lot

I personally didn't like the place much as there was no water activity associated with the fall ... unlike kempty falls Mussoorie although the place is really maintained. Can be visited once !!!

Nothing great to write about, this is just another waterfall that you get your cliche pics at. I would skip this if there are better things to do in the city.

Good Place with a nice waterfall .. But I would rate it low compared to other attractions .. If you are running out of time , you can skip this and wont regret much .. If you have enough time , it worth visiting

Elephant Falls, having three cascade is just 20 to 30 minutes’ drive away from Shillong, a must visit when you are here. It’s nearby Shillong peak and on the way if you go towards Cherrapunji.

A nice fall in three basic levels. At the lowest level u can dip your feet in the water. You can enjoy and spend some time here. Nice location for some great clicks.
