Sweet Falls is a waterfall in Shillong. It lies about 5 km from Happy Valley and is about 96m in height. It is often termed as the "most beautiful" yet "most dangerous" waterfall in Shillong.The destination is accessible via road. However, tourists are prohibited to go close to the waterfall due the poor route and treacherous nature of the fall.The adjacent areas are filled with pine tress. Some of the plant species include eupatorium, lantana, rubus, fern, osmundastrum cinnamomeum and phegopteris.DeathsIt is believed by the local people that this fall is haunted. If people go in odd number, they return in even number. The waterfall has also been the subject of numerous suicides and is infamous for many deaths. In July 2001 Mr. Jangkholen Haokip of Mata Lambulane, Churachandpur, Manipur and Ms. Boicy of Molnom, Churachandpur, Manipur died drowning. On March 17, 2013, Karttik Mishra, a 23-year-old student from the Indian Institute of Management died at the falls when he was trekking along with 18 other boys. Sources indicated that the boy slipped and fell into the fall when he was supposedly taking photographs. On September 2, 2013 two students from Manipur; Khual Ngaihte and Michael Ngaihte, hailing from Lamka, Churachandpur district died on the falls.
