Nohkalikai Falls is one of the taller waterfalls in India. It makes a dramatic free leap from a fairly well-forested drainage into a rocky base accompanied by a pretty blue pool. While we noticed that most of the waterfalls in the Cherrapunjee area really lost their luster outside of the monsoon season, this one seemed to maintain its perforance as I’ve seen photos dated in January and later that still have decent flow (I suspect the relatively healthy drainage upstream of the falls helps keeps its stream flowing). In fact, we even saw a pair of light flowing companion waterfalls making similar dramatic leaps off the escarpment which made me suspect that had we seen this falls in wetter times, there could have been many more companion waterfalls flanking the main one.
Nohkalikai Falls is said to be named after a story about a woman named Ka Likai who leapt off the cliff.

Directions: It’s about 53km from Shillong to the town of Cherrapunjee. We were escorted here taking about 1.5 to 2 hours of driving in each direction as we were undoubtedly slowed down by plenty of lorrie (i.e. truck) traffic as well as some local buses; all of which belched out some pretty lethal and visible doses of diesel exhaust. This followed about a roughly 4-hour drive from Guwahati to Shillong.
