    Description


    Nohkalikai Falls is a waterfall located in Meghalaya Cherrapunji (Sohra), Northeast India. It is the third tallest plunge waterfall in India, with a height of 340 meters (1,120 feet). The waterfall is named after a local legend of a woman named Likai who jumped to her death from the top of the falls. The waterfall is located near Cherrapunji, which is known for its heavy rainfall and is one of the wettest places on Earth.

    Recently, a new trek to the top of the Nohkalikai Falls has been opened to visitors and accessible only during the dry season. This trek is not for the faint of heart, as it can be slippery and challenging. 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.

    In addition to the trek, there are also two beautiful blue lagoons that visitors can swim in and enjoy the fresh and pure waters. One of the lagoons is located at the base of the Tlai falls and it is a great place to cool off and relax after a hike. However, visitors should be cautious when swimming. If you can’t swim well, you should avoid swimming in the lagoons.

    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.

    There are several ways to visit Nohkalikai Falls, each offering a unique perspective and experience:
    From the top: Visitors can view the falls from the top, where they can take in the full magnitude of the falls and get a sense of the height and power of the water as it plunges into the gorge below, can only be visited during the dry season.
    From the river bed: Visitors can trek down to the river bed and get a closer view of the falls. This allows them to see the falls from below and feel the power of the water as it crashes down.
    From the viewpoint: Visitors can also view the falls from the viewpoint, which is easily accessible from the parking area, it’s a great place to take in the natural beauty of the falls and the surrounding landscape.
    Each of these ways of visiting the falls offers a different perspective, and visitors can choose the one that best suits their interests and fitness level. It’s worth to note that visiting the falls from the river bed or from the top of the 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.
