Nohkalikai Falls is in Cheerapunji, one of the wettest places in Meghalaya and in India.

First of all, let me just say, these falls are no joke. They’re the tallest plunge waterfall in India, standing at a whopping 340 meters (or 1,115 feet for all you Americans out there). And, they’re located in Meghalaya, which just so happens to be one of the wettest places on earth. No big deal, right?

When you visit it in March, the falls will be at a bit of a low point (heh, pun intended) in terms of flow, since it’s the dry season from December to February. But, even with the decreased flow, the view will be incredible. The plunge pool at the bottom of the falls is a brilliant shade of green that you just have to see to believe.

Now, here’s where things get interesting. If one is adventurous, one can decide to take the stairs down to the base of the falls, because who doesn’t love a good adventure? But, after a while, the stairs just will end. Then a jungle beckons.

If you are the one who give up easilyt, you can find a way through the jungle and reach the base of the falls. The view will be absolutely incredible and all the sweat and effort will be totally worth it. The water was a stunning transparent blue that I’d never seen before in India.

Do such adventure, only in group.

Overall, the Nohkalikai Falls are a must-see attraction, but be prepared for a bit of an adventure to get to the bottom. And, if you do decide to take the stairs, for the love of all that is holy, make sure to bring a map, compass, and a sense of direction.
