Elephant Falls

Located a little outside the main city of Shillong in Meghalaya, this is a beautiful two tiered waterfall. The two parts are named as the Wir Phang falls and the Wei Laplam Falls. These two flow along dingles of rock and then blend together to justify its name which is the Elephant Falls. This is no doubt a must see in the state and people not only from other places but also from the same state cannot resist repeated trips to this tranquil destination. The place is much away from the hustle and bustle of the city streets and thus very peaceful and refreshing too. The monsoons are the time when you find the Elephant Falls in its full vigor with snow white, foamy water gushing down the falls. This ckear color makes the perfect combination with the shades of greenery around. There are also a number of medicial plants and shrubs whose goodness get infused in this therapeutic waters of the Falls.

Elephant structured waterfalls
We went to Elephant falls next which is just 6km away. It is a simple and beautiful three level waterfall. We had fun for sometime and proceeded to ML05 cafe for lunch which is very nearby.

A little far away from the city, Elephant falls is a very busy spot for travellers. You have to hike a little in order to reach the falls. But once you’ll reach the falls, you will be surprised with the enchanted view. You may have to wait for a while in order to get that perfect picture (coz of the crowd) but I’m sure it will be all worth it.
Pratyusha Sen
The magnificence of this giant three-drops waterfall enchanted us right from the moment we heard its cascading sheets of water. You'll find a stairway access to get down to the foot of the waterfall and watch it in wonder.
