  • Third highest and one of the most beautiful falls in the country. There is a way to go right at the tip of the falls to and also you walk forward from the main tourist viewpoint towards the end of the plateau to watch the bangladeshi plains, sunset is beautiful from there
  • one of the highest waterfalls in India. Drove through a high tableland, hiked for a small distance and we arrived at the viewpoint from where we can have a panoramic view of the Nohkalikai waterfall, cascading down into a pool-like formation
  • We visited the falls in February. There was less water in falls. But the color of the water was amazing. It was a pleasure to eyes to see such a scenic beauty. Must visit while in sohra
