The Noh Kalikai Image Gallery

Noh Kalikai Falls is one of the most stunning places in Meghalaya and should I say India in overall. The tall single step drop surrounded by meandering valleys and mighty canyons is a sight to behold.

This mighty waterfall also has a share in Meghalaya’s folklore, which says that a mother named ‘Kalikai’ fell from the top of the waterfall for unknowingly eating the human meat of her daughter that was presented to her by her husband (Her husband hated Kalika'i’s daughter). Noh Kalikai means ‘Fall of Kalikai’ and that was how the name came about or at least that’s what the folklore says.

Here are some images from my Noh Kalikai gallery that capture the 1500 plus foot drop, the meandering valleys, the dense forests and the mighty canyons.
