There is nothing special about this waterfall.This is just a simple waterfall.Meghalay is such a awesome place with so many more beautiful vibrant waterfalls. Very costly shops outside, don't buy souvenir from there .

A three-tiered waterfall infested by neurotic selfiemaniacs. This is what I can say for this beautiful waterfall. The beauty of Meghalaya is clearly visible in the monsoon in this fall.

Small but attractive location and this Elephant falls near to Shillong town. Do not miss it. But do not understand why this is called for Elephant falls?

The best among many waterfalls in and around Shillong. It is worth stepping down the long stairs to enjoy its beauty, although the climb upwards on return is a bit arduous.

Nice 3 steps waterfall, 10 km away from shillong. Considered part of local sight seen but waterfalls in cherrapunji is bit more better and bigger. You may avoid this if it is going to cost you another good sight seen.
