This is the highest plunge waterfall in india. We went there in monsoon season so have to wait for while before clouds getting cleared and we could have a glimpse of the spectacular sight. There's also a trek leading downstairs for a closer view of the falls is worth going. Also spend ample time here going around the green fields... More

This was the best among all the falls that I had visited. This place is very nice and clean and the waters there are blue and they look beautiful almost all throughout the year when there is water and the season isn't dry. Therefore this is one of the most beautiful spots that overlooks a waterfall. This falls is also... More

This place has a sad story behind the name of this fall. But this fall is amongst 3rd or 4rth highest falls in the world I guess. A beautiful location, wet mountains all over, a scenic road from Shillong to this place. local handicrafts and local spices sold by the tribals living nearby. One must see attractions if you visit...

One of the best place I have been to Cherrapunjee. I would say, a must place to visit. I went there in June when it was rainy and this is why I was able to see the nice view of that fall.

Brilliant view from the top. The best time to visit is during the monsoons. My favorite spot is the bridge which is some half kilometers before the actual falls. The view from here is breathtaking.

Nohkalikai Falls is the highest waterfall of Northeast India and is one of the highest in the country. It is the only perennial waterfalls in the Khasi hills. It is located slightly away from Cherrapunjee and is one of the main attractions of the place. The turquoise coloured water below is an additional beauty. However, there is only a single... More
