“Amazing waterfall with mesmerizing viewpoints of it”
Review of Byrdaw Falls

Byrdaw Falls
Reviewed 29 June 2018

This waterfall is located around 70 Km from Shillong Dawki road under Pomshutia village. It is on the right side of the main road where you will have to take a short distance towards the village interior.

For big vehicles (traveller/bus), I think they will have to park in the village (there is a space for that) while small cars can go further distance towards the waterfall but make note that the last place where you can go by car has limited space (may be max of 10 cars, so plan accordingly.

After this point there is cemented footpath with steps to climb up and down which you will have to trek abit to reach the fall. Preferably good walking shoes as it could be slippery during monsoon.

You will have to cross a small iron cable bridge (While coming back, a little bit on the left side after crossing this bridge - not visible from foot path, a small dam is there where you can play/swim nicely since it is just around 10 feet deep) too to reach the waterfall.

The Beauty about this waterfall is that you can go through it and sit under it relaxing and enjoy seeing up close and personal of this majestic waterfall while it dispenses tons and tons of water every second from above. In monsoon season, it will be more beautiful as the sheet of water flowing is much heavy. If you have an umbrella in hand, it will be handy while you go towards the bottom of it...

You can reach the bottom of the waterfall and get a complete view of it from there.

The place has proper railings but doesn't seems to be lately maintained as the wear and tear are visible everywhere. so watch your steps while you trek towards it BUT it is worth it once you reach. While returning, you can detour from another set of shortcut steps (abit steep but manageable) and you don't need to go through the waterfall again if you don't want to.

There is no place to eat near the falls, so plan to carry your food/water accordingly.

Note to tourists: please appreciate the beauty of nature but don't abuse it by littering or engaged in unhealthy activities.
