Situtated at a distance of just 5 kilometers from the main city, Nohkalikai waterfalls in Cherrapunji, is one of the most popular tourist attractions. The Nohkalikai Falls is also one of the highest waterfalls in India, with water falling from a height of 1100 feet. The best season to visit the Waterfall is during Monsoon, when the waterfall is in its full swing.
The Waterfalls are visible from a viewpoint, which offer a breathtaking panoramic view of the Waterfalls, pouring down into a green-colored pool, surrounded by the verdant green forests, making it a truly magnificent sight to see. The name of the waterfall literally translate from the Khasi language, to "The Jump of Likai", referring to a local legend of a woman named Likai, who tragically committed suicide, by jumping off the cliff of the waterfall.
