Elephant Falls (Shillong)

The Elephant Falls are a unique feature of Shillong, since the waterfall itself is made up of three very lucid steps. The first one, hidden among the trees, the second one, tamed and controlled flowing from a certain height, and the third, the fastest and biggest one, culminating into the stream below. Unfortunately, the structure of the black rocks resembling an elephant was destroyed during an earthquake in Meghalaya, but the falls are equally majestic still, with the lucid contrast of the frothy falls against the dark rocks.

Mawsmai Cave (Shella Road, Cherapunjee)

Revered as one of the most popular and notable landmarks in Cherrapunji is Mawsmai cave. The place is eerily dark and has cramped and narrow paths entwined with each other, and to add some more thrill into the idea of a cave pitch black in broad daylight, there is just one entry and exit point. Getting inside the cave you can see constant dripping of water from the roofs of cave and the formation of stalactites and stalagmites. This Cave in Meghalaya is what many explorers would call a eerie experience from the face of it, but well worth the tour anyway.

Mawlynnong Village (Shillong)

Mawlynnong Village in Meghalaya has been consecutively voted as Asia's cleanest village and is one of the places to visit in Meghalaya. It is hard to spot even a single piece of straw or dusty roads here. The roads seem to be freshly laid and the village stands out distinctively for housing some of the rarest natural wonders of north east, like the Mawlynnong waterfall, which is a sight to behold, pushing its way through lush vegetation and descending into clear waters below. The live root bridge here (Not to be confused with the Double Decker Bridge in Cherapunjee) is the major attraction for all the visitors while the boulders here supported by nothing but pint sized stones, are a mystery for archaeological travelers who come here.
