The Sweet Falls is one of the steepest and most beautiful falls in Shillong. The Sweet Falls is locally called the Weitden. The steep falls dives down a height of 96 meters gushing and breaking into black rocks below. During the monsoon season, the water gains momentum and falls with full force. The sight is breath-taking and spectacular. The irony of the name of the falls is that there is probably nothing sweet about the waterfalls apart from its magnificent sight.
It is dangerous during the monsoons as the edges become wet and slippery. The Sweet Falls is located at Happy Valley in the outskirts of Shillong and can be easily reached. Local taxies can be booked to reach this tourist destination. Locals regularly visit the spot and revel in the laps of Nature. Recently the Meghalaya Tourism has beautified the area around the falls and made it easily accessible to tourists.
