  • This was the fall where we found water during our visit last month. There is little entry fee Rs10 per person. You can have nice view of the fall. Good place to visit and recommended to visit.  more »

  • One of the best of the waterfalls, seen so far, is this Nohkalikai waterfalls in Meghalaya. Meghalaya has many interesting places and is of major tourist attractions in the Eastern Province, India. This waterfall attracts many visitors, lots of resorts located in the nearby locations. Excellent natural scenic beauty. The mountain views with clouds touching the mountain peaks are so majestic. The weather is very pleasant.
  • A good place to remember. There are 3 view point where one is named as exotic view point little down and need to use stairs. One can enjoy the closer view with trees. There is a monolithic park where one should visit. That reminds me the view of Scotland or scene from movie LOTR or GOT. We have enjoyed the silence and peace there.
  • Beautiful place. Hardly 5 km from Sohra, it is reached by an all weather serpentine road passing through beautiful landscape and rolling hills with villages dotted here and there. The falls themselves are a treat to watch. Best time to visit must be Sept-Oct, when the falls are in full splendour. Since I visited in Jan, two or three strands of falls were there. Abundance of shops selling local handicraft, spices and many others. Eateries whip up tasty snacks too.
  • Nahhakalikya Falls, Meghalaya This waterfall is situated in the beautiful hills of Meghalaya, which is situated at a height of 340 meters. The fountain which is near the anus is more rampant in the rainy season. Tourists from all over the country come here to see the watercourse in the rainy season. After seeing the water falling down the hill, the mountain will feel like tension free. If you want to be free of tension on this summer vacation, you can visit these specialty waterfalls in the country. We have brought some very beautiful and beautiful waterfalls to you. You can enjoy this summer vacation completely
  • Behold one of the most beautiful places on earth. I fell in love with place. Apart from the falls, keep walking south towards the end of the cliff and the sight will leave you awestruck. The falls has also a sad back story to it.
