Dain-thlen Falls - Review
Dain thlen falls are located about 2 km away from Cherrapunjee. This fall is conspicuous as its beauty is enhanced by the presence of large number of natural potholes, much bigger in size and dimension than the regular ones on roads. The view of this waterfall tumbling down from a height of close to 80-90 m is really spectacular, something that you can’t miss during your visit to Cherrapunji. There is a small legend associated with the name of this fall. According to locals, there was a huge demon python by the name of Thlen who was filled with greed and power. Some brave men caught the animal and destroyed its hood with a huge stone near this fall. Some of the marks present on the stones are still reminiscent of the violent struggle of that snake, say the naysayers. The turbulence of this fall gathers a lot of steam during the monsoons compared to the rest of the year and offers a great view. Tourists visiting the waterfall can explore the natural rock carvings of the snake, which represent the symbol of evil, greed and corruption.

Dain-Thlen Falls, Cherrapunji Reviews
The place is massive and one can spend the entire day there. You can cook and have lunch there or you can take your foods and have a nice picnic there. Photos will not justify the actual beauty of the place.
Bumpy road to drive here but wonderful experience on top of falls. One can sit and swim in water at top. Nice place to enjoy. Must watch
Beautiful waterfall just by the side of the road. The road is named Dainthlen road. Easily accessible by car . U can take a walk around the barricades on the cliff and enjoy the view of this beautiful place.
It is a lonely falls but has a great quality to attract tourists. Many shootings are done here especially shootings of romantic Assamese songs. When I visited here, I was unable to figure out that this is the place which is often choose for songs. Which is why I did not pose very specifically here for photos. When I realised, I wanted to come here with my friends last year. But driver refused. Any way, it has very much mesmerizing view. The big stones present in the river are interesting to watch. I wish it provides lots of facilities to visitors as this place lacks quality facilities like other famous falls.
If you want to explore some beautiful places in northeast this is one, you can even take bath in the river. Suggestions travel in monsoon if lucky you'll see some amazing view. Month - July- August
