Elephant Falls, Shillong

Initially named after a stone that looked like an elephant, this incredible waterfall was made of three falls during the British time.

Notwithstanding, the third one gets the attention with smooth white water cheerfully flowing over rocks shrouded in greenery. With thick vegetation on one or the other side, Elephant Falls can be reached by cautiously sliding along dangerous and steep steps.
