Dainthlen falls Located in East Khasi Hills District, Sohra



Just before reaching Sohra, a road to the right, leads one to the falls which is 5 kms away. The waterfall derives its name from a Thlen or a snake of gigantic size which dwelt in a cave. 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.

A hauntingly beautiful waterfall, cascading down from the top of the gorge to the mystic deep green pool below, reminding one of the tragic legend associated with it, of a grief stricken mother who plunged to her death, unable to overcome her sorrow over the murder of her daughter by her husband.

Lyngksiar Waterfall



This is the most beautiful Waterfall of the village. It derived its name from the rare orchid known as Tiew Lyngksiar.

In the past, this spot was used by the village community as a Community fishing ground. The villagers gathered here to get a big catch in the form of friendly competition.
