Known as Ka Kshaid Lai Pateng Khohsiew by the local Khasi people, Elephant Falls are perhaps the most popular tourist destination in Shillong. If you are on a sight-seeing spree of the city, make sure this place is right at the top of your itinerary. The first thing that you will witness after reaching the spot is the foaming white water, gurgling down the stony steps. This crystal clear water is in contrast with the greenery on the sides of the waterfall, adding to the beauty of the place. Renamed as Elephant Falls by the British, who found it difficult to pronounce the local name, the waterfall is believed to have gotten its name from a huge elephant-shaped rock near it. Though the rock was destroyed in an earthquake, the name remained. Make the best use of this waterfall and shed your inhibitions to take a dip in cold, clear water.

Elephant Fall, Shillong Reviews - Write a Review

  • It is a wonderful experience. How long I can remember that there was a notice board where was written that the best time to visit the place is all the time except Monsoon. So avoid Monsoon. But the water fall is so fabulous.

  • Beautiful waterfall very close to shilling city. This was first waterfall that we started our week long meghalaya trip. Little walk from parking area will take you to first fall walk further down second falls. Closer to city makes it easier to access of course moderately crowded

  • Nice romantic spot for a quiet private time. Tho a continuous stream of visitors are around. . Full of trees and sound of water is very soothing. Good place to be in in the afternoon .2nd and 3rd level falls are Not suitable for persons with knee problem..

  • The first fall is fabulous, so as the third, but second one is very short. A visual treat for eyes, if enough water streams down. Try to observe the inner flaming beauty of the falls by extreme focus. A good place for relaxing your mind.

  • A highly Well maintained place. Totally clean and beautiful place. Waterfalls are very Clean. Yeah it was a good experience in upper Shillong. Traditional Shopping also available but price was a little bit expensive.
