Nohkalikai Falls is the tallest plunge waterfall in India. Its height is 1115 feet (340 metres). The waterfall is located near Cherrapunji, one of the wettest places on Earth. Nohkalikai Falls are fed by the rainwater collected on the summit of a comparatively small plateau and decrease in power during the dry season in December - February. Below the falls there has formed a plunge pool with unusual green colored water.
Cherrapunji with the historic name Sohra being more commonly used can also be spelled Cherrapunjee or Cherrapunji) and is a sub-divisional town in the East Khasi Hills district in the Indian state of Meghalaya.
Cherrapunji has often been credited as being the wettest place on Earth, but for now nearby Mawsynram currently holds that distinction. Cherrapunji still holds the all-time record for the most rainfall in a calendar month and in a year, however: it received 9,300 mm (370 in; 30.5 ft) in July 1861 and 26,461 mm (1,041.8 in; 86.814 ft) between 1 August 1860 and 31 July 1861.
It is the Land of Waterfalls & Spectacular Landscape.
Inspiredby the excellent compositions of photographers Mr. Andy Pariat & Mr. Lumlung Kamei, ‘Just Photo Walk’ organized two trips to Meghalaya. We did meet and spend some wonderful times with both during our trip to Cherrapunji.
