Spread Eagle Falls Overview

Ranked 58 of 43 sightseeing in Shillong

Spread Eagle Falls is located in the East Khasi Hills District, in the Shillong Cantonment. It is about 6 km from the city and 3 km from the Polo ground. The Spread Eagle Falls or the Sati Falls are considered to be the widest fall in entire Shillong. It grows wide near the pinnacle and gushes down steep hills that tower round the three sides into a massive pool created by the splash of water.

This fall is also known as Sati Falls and Urkaliar or the falls into which Ka Liar slipped. Tourists visit this calm and serene place to enjoy the sparkling waterfall, which looks like an eagle with wings spread out. Thus, it is named as Spread Eagle Falls. The steep cliffs on three sides with a pool beneath is a treat to the eyes.

Not up to the expectation level

I thought the waterfall will have heavy current and water but it didn't meet my expectations. Spread Eagle Falls is one of the points in Shillong sightseeing but it can be skipped if time is limited else it can be visited.

Enjoyed the natural fall

Good and enjoyable and the children were thrilled to see such a natural fall in the heart of the city.
