We can avoid this one provided you have seen other water falls in this state. This is the nearest one to Shillong, so if your trip is limited to Shillong, then its a must do.

Great place. 3 phases to watch the waterfall. I am the lucky person got the clear atmosphere visited in the second week of May therefore the fall has much water.
