If you are OK climbing dont few hundred steps and trek a little to the bottom of the fall - its worth watching. Secondly it should be your day as far as weather is concerned. During foggy or rainy day nothing is visible. Rest its good going there

The name is linked to the legend of a local woman Likai who after a family tragedy jumped off the cliff next to the fall. One gets a beautiful view of the falls from the view point. One can also go down the path to the bottom of the falls. There is a small green pond at the bottom of... More

The clouds were just making their way slowly and we were lucky to just see the falls for 5 minutes before it was totally enveloped. A huge waterfall, felt as if the water was dancing all the way down.....did not expect much water in Apr, but due to many pre-monsoon showers, we were plain lucky. Did not take the steps... More

It is in Sohra. Heavy rainfall has lead to huge water falls like this one. It is named after a lady who jumped next to the water fall from above to commit suicide unable to bear the death of her daughter at the hands of her second husband. You will get mesmerised at the grandeur. A view to behold.

Beauty of this waterfalls is that you can view it’s magnificent descent right from the origin in the dense forest till the bottom of the waterfalls in the valley. One can get nice view of the waterfalls by taking the well laid steps.

I traveled in the month of april so its was kind of dry season but still enough water in the falls. You get a good view of the valley from the... More

Firstly, the drive to Cherrapunjie is truly awesome and very similar to that of Scottlish Highlands. Truly out of the world as we are literally driving into the clouds. Looking at it from a distance, one can definitely say it is the Niagra of the North-east. There is accessibility to get closer to the falls if one wants to. It... More

Though we went in a dry period, but still these falls had water and it was an awesome view from up there. View point has some part more to explore and see the valley view - it looks stunning. We had a gr8 time.
