Landscapes near Nohsngithiang Falls, Meghalaya

The Nohsngithiang Falls is located near Cherrapunji in the East Khasi Hills district of Meghalaya. It is supposed to be the 4th highest waterfall in India, but when one takes a look at the landscapes around it, the sheer barrenness defies the existence of this waterfall.

The landscape hardly looks green, does not have any trees, just medium sized grass and small hillocks. In short, it looks like a flood plain.

And that is how this waterfall also behaves. It comes into existence only during the rainy season and I guess because of this barren landscape, water doesn’t get absorbed and flows like a raging flood into the abyss below.

But that is how varied nature is in Meghalaya and this place is sure a great treat for the traveller’s eyes.
