Elephant Falls was the British name of what the local #Khasi people once referred to as Ka Kshaid Lai Pateng Khohsiew (or "Three Steps Waterfalls") since the falls actually consisted of three sections in #succession. We learned from a sign board here that the British renamed the falls because there used to be a rock resembling an #elephant near the left side of the main falls. However, that rock was destroyed in an #earthquake back in 1897.
All 3 levels of #waterfall were easily reached by the short and easy #walking path. We spent about 30 mins here, as it was #raining heavily all #morning we couldn't stay longer.
