If you’re planning to visit Tryshi Falls, just remember that it’s no walk in the park. Well, it is technically a walk, but you’ll need to have some endurance in those legs of yours. You can’t just drive up to the waterfall, you’ll need to trek a winding footpath down to the bottom. But trust me, the view is worth it.
Just make sure you visit after the monsoons, from October to December. Otherwise, you might be disappointed to find a trickle instead of a torrent. And nobody likes a disappointing trickle.
But if you time your visit just right, you’ll get to experience the full force of Tryshi Falls. The cascading water will spray you like a shower from a distance, and you’ll feel like you’re standing in the middle of a tropical downpour. It’s like being in a music video, but with less hair flips and more slip-sliding around.
If you’re in Shillong and thinking about making the 80km journey to Tryshi Falls, I say go for it! Taxis are easily available at Police Bazar/City Center, and the drive takes about 2-3 hours. Just don’t forget your waterproof gear and your sense of adventure!
