We visited this place just before evening. Nice refreshing place with good surroundings. One can easily pass some leisure hours sitting here, talking here. In fine, excellent place it is.

Though the elephant fall has 3 level falls , it is didfficult to see all 3 as you have to climb down 250 steps. You could rather save tome snd push to other larger falls st Cherapunji

I like the place where you can spend quality times with friends and families. The waterfall is not great though but a good place to meet friends and families.

The falls themselves are quite beautiful. There are several stages till the bottom-most level to stop and admire the rushing waters. The bridge and the steps were slippery due the rains Being one of the popular spots, the places is quite crowded.
