The next destination was Elephant Falls. It will take atmost 30 mins of your time. From there, I left for Umiam lake. I had to wait for ~45 mins to share the boat ride, but it was worth it. The lake is beautiful and the boat ride was pleasant.

We then reached the parking slot in 3 hours and it was a memorable one. Everyone's dress was drenched with sweat and took rest for sometime. Driver was on time and we boarded the traveller.Our next destination is Elephant Falls, it was a 3 storeyed falls. A view point on each layer of the waterfalls, it was good. Highlight of that venue, was trying out the Khasi tribal dress. Everyone changed to that attire and took the snaps.We then reached to Air Force Museum nearby, spent some time in it. Few prototypes of the missile and aircraft were available.
2. 3 Steps Waterfall/Elephant Falls - Elephant falls is probably the first fall that you'll see in Meghalaya. Due to the resemblance of rock to the elephant, Britishers named the falls as Elephant falls. The rock was later destroyed in an earthquake. The fall is also called the 3 steps waterfall as it is a three-tier waterfall. This may not be the best waterfall in Meghalaya but it is definitely worth your time.
The rock resembling a shape of an elephant is the reason of its name being Elephant falls, a few stairs away , it gives a view worth cherishing.
