About Dumdam Falls
Dumdam Falls (pronounced like “DOOM-dahm”) was a bit of a surprise waterfall for us.
We didn’t expect to see it nor did we even know it existed going into our trip to India.
But it was significant for us for only one reason – it was the first waterfall we saw in person in the country.
Along with some neighboring pipes (which I suspected was for water diversion), there was a Balari Cafe right next to the falls (for a quick bite and restroom break) as well as a footbridge offering decent frontal views of this fairly small waterfall.
By small, I’m guessing the Dumdam Falls was no more than 15m tall.
We ran into some unfortunate circumstances concerning flight delays that wiped out our ability to see Sweet Falls or other major waterfalls in the East Khasi Hills of Meghalaya State.
Therefore, even though this was nothing more than a roadside stop, it was sort of our impromptu consolation prize for missing out on some of the greater waterfalls we were supposed to see.
Dumdam Falls resides in the Ri Bhoi District of Meghalaya State. It is administered by the Ri Bhoi District Government. For information or inquiries about the area as well as current conditions, you can visit their website.
We only learned of its name from our humorous Khasi driver (asked by our Assamese guide) who also said it was near the village of Umiam (or Umium as I’ve also seen it spelled).
