This is like so many other waterfalls around the hilly places in the country. Nothing great, but can be visited as part of the itinerary of a Shillong trip for a leisurely outing.

Modi visited this place in 2016 and tweeted that it was a must-see. Though not as spectacular as the other falls that are further away from Shillong city, this is a nice spot for you to include on the Shillong city tour itinerary.

Let's be honest, this waterfall is only wonderful and all if you have never seen a waterfall before. Other waterfalls in the Khasi valleys are incredibly more beautiful.
