Waterfalls

Dainthlen falls
Location: East Khasi Hills District, Sohra

Legend has it that the people destroyed the snake in order to rid themselves of its reign of terror. Adjacent to the very spot where the Thlen was slaughtered lies the Dain-thlen Waterfalls. Natural rock carvings of the epi­sode draw visitors to see the image of the Thlen, the symbol of greed, cor­ruption and evil. The view of the water flowing in full force is the most wonderful beauty that anyone can experience from the viewing gallery.
