Lovely view sad story behind it!

We trekked up there from the root bridge, amazing view and hard trek. We were aching with the effort. But the view was worth it.

It is a great sight to see the mighty Nohkalikai Falls raging in full form in the monsoon. It forms a blue pool below and the plunge is quite steep. The hills surrounding the stream is lush green covered in forests and adds to the melancholy of the story behind the name of the falls. Do not be afraid to... More

Blue water falling from >1000ft is always a delight to watch. Water looks sky blue. You need to go down steep stairs (which actually feels steep once you climb up) to have a closer look. A visit to Cherrapunjee can't be complete without visiting this.

Your day is made when you see India's biggest (1150 feet) waterfall. It is a breath taking deep fall formed a small pool below with unusual green colour water. Its story is sad.
