Sweet Falls Overview

Ranked 18 of 43 sightseeing in Shillong

Sweet Falls, a very steep fall, is one of the most mesmerising waterfalls in the country. The beauty of the waterfall along with gargling sound of the water, bird chirps and rich flora are the highlights of this fall.

Situated near Happy Valley, at a distance of about eight kilometre from Shillong, the waterfall is a famous picnic spot for the locals as well as tourists. Water cascades down from a great height which is hardly visible from the foot of falls.

The site is situated along with a mini zoo and a Butterfly Museum. Visitors can witness  most beautiful varieties of roses in the surroundings along with distinct species of pelicans. As there are no barricades, rocks and protecting boundaries around the place of fall, high caution is advised.

Sweet, as the name goes!!!

Milky white water cascading down from the mountain is a sight to behold for any eyes! It has a colorful railings and a shed to sit and watch the waterfalls. One can pack picnic lunch and have a great time amidst the beautiful meadows. Simply beautiful! A must visit place.

A popular picnic spot

Well this fall is situated in happy valley area in Shillong. It is quite a popular picnic spot among locals and tourists. You can enjoy the milky white stream and the lush green surroundings and take couple of beautiful pictures back home.

Highest waterfall in Shillong

The view of the waterfall from a near by restaurant was spectacular. We halted at the restaurant because the waterfall is perfectly visible from that restaurant. Unfortunately I have forgotten the name. The waterfall creates a rainbow at the bottom and the fall has created a superb reservoir at the bottom with crystal clear blue water. Sweet waterfall looks great from far. It is strongly suggested to visit.
