One of the major attractions of Cherrapunjee, the falls is nearly 6 Km from Cherrapunjee. The cascading effect of water traversing through multicoloured rocks to reach the pool at the bottom is quite majestic. This beautiful waterfall has a story attached to it. As the locals has it, there was an evil snake living in caves nearby the waterfall. To get rid of such evil, the locals killed the snake, “thlen” in local dialect, on these rocks and thus derive its name.
