The falls[edit]

The Bishop Falls is a three-tiered waterfall with a height of 135 metres (443 ft).[2] The Bishop' Falls is often referred to as the twin brother of the Beadon Falls since both tumble down the same escarpment into a yawning gorge.[3] Beadon Falls and Bishop Falls are off the Guwahati road at Mawprem.[4] A narrow road at Mawlai takes one to a view point from where both the falls can be seen together.[5]
