Rainbow Falls is a beautiful waterfall located near Nongriat Village in Cherrapunji. Situated near the imposing Double Decker Root Bridge, Rainbow Falls is one of the most popular places to visit in Cherrapunji.

The waterfall got its name from the small perennial rainbow that forms over the pool where the water flows down. The entire sight of the pristine water falling down into the pool wearing a rainbow sash is overwhelming.

The trail to Rainbow Falls begins from Nongriat Double Decker Bridge and takes around 1-2 hours to finish the trek. The way to Rainbow Falls is not cemented and consists of several ascents and descents. Therefore, it is recommended to finish the trek before 5 PM as it gets dark early here.
