One should try to go in the afternoon times. During our stay we found that the sky opens in the noons. If it is foggy you cant see anything, The fall is magnificent. One should visit this fall during the monsoon season. These falls are rain fed so they dry up after monsoon.

The falls presented a good view. You have to drive up about 10 kms to reach the falls from the main road. A single good road takes you there. There is an entry fee of Rs. 10 without paying which you cant view the fall. Some small eateries area also available for chilling out.

A cluster of several falls dropping from over a 1000 feet tall cliff in a wide arc is a very captivating view, indeed. We were lucky in that there was no rain but beautiful fog kept playing hide and seek over the cliff displaying a rare romantic view for those present at that time. The legend of Likai is widely...

This water fall is near cherrapunjee town, about 45 kilometers from Shillong- about 3 hours drive. These falls are considered to be one of the tallest falls in India. Very beautiful view in monsoon, provided you see it on a clear sunny day. Most of the time, when you look from its view point, you will find it covered by... More

The road from shillong to Cherapunjee is excellent. The view is good.You will definitely enjoy the drive. NOhkalikai is the best in the entire range.But you have to be lucky in order to witness it.As sometimes cloud or mist can be the spoilsport

Nohkalikai Falls in Cherrapunjee is worth the visit for every moment spent. At the base of the falls is a small pool of clear lush green water. When i went there with my cousin, got tempted to go down till the base and started walking down the stairs. Stairs were too long so came back. Neverthless it was every penny... More

Nohkalikai Falls is one of the taller waterfalls in India. A hauntingly beautiful waterfall, cascading down from the top of the gorge to the mystic deep green pool below, reminding one of the tragic legend associated with it, of a grief stricken mother who plunged to her death, unable to overcome her sorrow over the murder of her daughter by...

Nohkalikai water fall is located near Cherrapunjee. It is the tallest plunge water fall in India. Its height is 1100 ft. It is one of the most beautiful & photogenic falls. Below the falls there has formed a plunge pool with clean greenish coloured water. Pleased to visit such healthy water falls with panoramic nature beauty. I recommend to visitors... More
