Tyrshi Falls

Jowai-Shillong Road, West Jaintia Hills, Meghalaya

Situated on the Jowai-Shillong road of Meghalaya, Tyrshi Falls is a delightful waterfall in the Jowai region. Just like the Elephant falls in Shillong, Tyrshi falls is known as the Elephant falls of Jowai where one can take the joy of going close to the waterfall and enjoy the water bursts. But however, mention must be made of the fact that Tyrshi falls is three times taller than the Elephant falls.

Lush green paddy fields adorn this beautiful waterfall. The fall comes down in steps with the water flowing swiftly in a gush. An arched bridge, consisting of 20 hundred steps go down to the bottom of the falls. One can enjoy an incredible and scenic view of the Pynthor Nein (paddy fields). The best time to visit this place would be during the monsoon period. But one can visit Tyrshi falls throughout the year.
