About Dain-thlen Falls, Cherrapunji

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

  • A beautiful waterfall. One of the most beautiful falls created by the forces of nature. A perfect location to visit for a picnic spot to spend a holiday. But the road to the place is not that good. The best time to visit is Spring or Autumn season. During winter, the amount of water is less so the waterfall doesn't look much nice.

  • Beautify place must visit... young localities will visit this place with girl friend... I was wondering about the water source... because it is on top of the hill and very less space for water storage... in front of nature we should not think much we need to enjoy this place... It's around 4 to 5kms from main road... we have lots of options to settle ourselves in this beautiful place.

  • 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.

  • Good one. Go explore it. There is a crossing just before the waterfall starts try crossing it if you can. I couldn't, see if you can.

  • I would highly recommend going here when it's monsoon season. Winters too dry and nothing much to see. When it's monsoon it's heaven. Nature is in its full bloom in monsoon season.
