    Description


    Near the Nohkalikai Falls viewpoint, located in Meghalaya, Northeast India, near the city known as Sohra or Cherrapunjee, a new trek to the top of the Nohkalikai Falls has been opened to visitors and accessible only during the dry season.

    The trek to the top of Nohkalikai falls also leads you to Khlieh Kshaid Lagoon, as known as the lagoon of the top falls, which is a beautiful lagoon located nearby. This lagoon is a great place to cool off and relax after a hike, and the clear blue water is a perfect spot for swimming.
    However, visitors should be cautious when swimming in the lagoon. If you can’t swim well, it’s better to avoid swimming in the lagoon and enjoy the beauty of the falls from the shore.

    It’s important to remember to respect the natural environment and avoid littering and doing activities that can damage the natural beauty of the area, and also to be aware of safety precautions and guidelines when visiting the waterfall and take responsibility for your own safety. It’s worth to note that visiting the Tlai falls, the top of Nonkalikai Falls or the lagoon of the top falls requires a moderate level of physical fitness, and the trek can be slippery and difficult to navigate, so visitors should wear appropriate shoes and exercise caution while visiting. It is highly recommended to take a local guide who can lead you to the top of the falls safely. The trek is a great way to experience the full power of the falls and get a unique view of the surrounding landscape.
