This striking and historicwaterfallis located in a place called Thlumuwi in the Jaintia Hills District of Meghalaya. The beautiful Thlumuwi Falls is on the Jowai Amlarem Road in a small place called Thlumuwi.

This picturesque Thlumuwi waterfall overlooking this grand stone bridge situated on the banks of the Thlumuwi stream, offers a panoramic and breathtaking view.
During the rule of the Jaintia King, the summer capital of the Kingdom was shifted from Sutnga to Nartiang. Two of his trusted lieutenants, U Mar Phalyngki and U Luh Lyngskor Lamare built a bridle path from Nartiang to Jaintiapur so that the King and his escorts could frequently shuttle without disrupt between Jaintiapur, the regular capital and Nartiang, the summer capital. A strong stone bridge was constructed over the Thlumuwi stream and this bridle path was completed. This magnificent bridge was sustained upon massive and tall pillars of stone and was made of huge stone pieces. However, during the turn of the present century, one of the stone pieces of this bridge collapsed when an elephant trader, involved in a Keddah Operation, on his way to Sylhet led his elephants through this bridge. This broken stone bridge is still in its place.
