About Rappelling

If you are an adventure-hungry soul and your appetite for adventures in Shillong has not satisfied yet, you would be glad to know that the spectacular Elephant Falls offers opportunities for rappelling. With water hitting your face and wetting your entire body, and you trying to descend the rocks with a rope coiled around your body, it is sure to leave you gasping for more. It is advised to be cautious since this activity needs one to descend through or alongside a waterfall, which makes it difficult for those who haven’t tried it ever. However, those who are enchanted by the thrill of this activity are advised to try the first waterfall. It is only 40 feet high with rocks surrounding it from both sides that act as support while doing the activity.

Historical Context: The Elephant Falls was named as such by the British since there was a huge rock near the falls that resembled the shape of an elephant. The rock, however, was destroyed in 1897 in an earthquake.

Highlights

  • Cost Category Economy
  • Activity For Group, Solo, Couple, Family
  • Entry Fee INR 250
