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 - Write a Review

  • What an amazing place was this! I went there with my friend and no one was there. Not a single stall was open. Only we two. And this waterfall. You can literally stand on it and see the fall falling down. A must visit.

  • Beautiful place, one can actually enjoy the rocky flat bed of the river playing with water and at the same time experience the water fall from close quarter. simply superb...

  • Awesome not much explored place. Very clean water. Absolutely not commercialised. Must visit. Carry water and food. Never throw garbage there. Keep it clean.

  • Secluded place. Very nice views. Gets foggy by 5pm. Enjoy some privacy in this vast water fall. Beware of the undercurrent and be safe. Good for large groups.

  • One of the most beautiful falls in chirapunjee, take food and the water because you won't get anything near to the waterfalla
