Elephant Falls

#6 of 17 things to do in Shillong

Located at 12 kms from Shillong, the elephant falls is an excellent pitstop before you further head out to explore the rest of Meghalaya. Referred to as 'Ka Kshaid Lai Pateng Khohsiew' by the local Khasi people, which means 'The Three Step Waterfalls', with all the three layers of falls accessible from different points, the place is an excellent spot for simply enjoy the beauty of the Meghalaya. Named after an Elephant like stone at its foot, the first of the three waterfalls are very broad and are tucked between the dense trees. The second one reduces to thin strands of water and the third one is the tallest, the most visible and impressive waterfall is the tallest with clear water flowing like a sheet of milk on the dark rocks leaves the visitors in awe. This is a wonderful place for spending some time amidst mother nature while soaking in its luring beauty.
