At a distance of 13 km from Shillong Bus Stand, Sweet Falls is a gorgeous waterfall situated near Happy Valley in Shillong, Meghalaya. Also called as Kshaid Weitden, it is one of the stunning waterfalls in Meghalaya and among the popular places to visit in Shillong.

Falling from a height of 315 feet, the Sweet Falls is unbroken and the water falls down with a tremendous force. The milky white stream and the surrounding green vegetation make it one of the most scenic waterfalls in Shillong. Naturally, the force of the water makes it impossible to bath or stand directly underneath the falls.

Often referred as 'most beautiful' yet 'most dangerous' waterfall in Shillong, tourists are prohibited to enter into the waterfall but can be seen from a viewpoint near Happy Valley. Numerous suicides and accidental falls have been occurred at the sweet falls. The locals firmly believe that the fall is haunted. In fact people say that 'go in groups of odd numbers to the sweet falls and you will return in groups of even numbers'.

The route to the waterfall is not very well maintained and one need to take some steep steps down to reach a place that offers a great view of the falls. Better to visit the falls before 4 PM as flocks of unsavory local boys roam here in the late evenings.
