I don't think it's right time to visit cherrapunjee. In November as there was no rain so falls are all very limited. The best time to visit this place is in monsoon season which is very long here. Although the beauty of the place is great but the main reason to visit here is the waterfall. Which is not that... More

An exotic water fall near cherapunji of north east India, fed primarily by rain water, plunging into rocky bed from a height of nearly 1120 feet. From the view point on the hill opposite to the fall, it seems that water streamline passing through verdant valley and fall down from the cliff. The water is transparent and often form rainbow...

Just imagine a water fall plunging down from 1100+ feet, making it India's highest waterfall. This is in Cherrapunji. Just opposite to the falls is the view point where you can admire and absorb in the beauty of the falls. The density of the falls is the highest during the rainy season and the best part is that the it... More

The most beautiful cave in Meghalaya. The single plunge waterfall is one of the most romantic sights to see inspite of the sad story associated with this fall. In the last 10 years or so, it has become more commercialized with the locals from the village earning from the sale of various items to the hordes of tourist who visit... More

One of the tallest waterfall. You an spend time here and enjoy the natural beauty. One can view this from road or those who wants to do adventure can go for Waterfall hopping. It will take time for hopping but make sure to have sticks in your hand as its very slippery but worth it

The story behind the name of this fall is haunting. Otherwise, this waterfall offers an amazing view. Went to Meghalaya in June 2016, just before the monsoon, by far the best decision ever. Plenty of places around the viewpoint to eat and drink.
