Nohsngithiang Falls–5th highest waterfall in India

This is one of Meghalaya’s most scenic spots. It is also the place where India’s 5th highest falls exists. The Nohsngithiang Falls, at 1,033 feet, is a seven-segmented waterfall that plunges over the top of limestone cliffs of the Khasi Hills. It is also known as the Seven Sister Waterfalls and the Mawsmai Falls.

It is situated close to Cherrapunji in the East Khasi Hills district of Meghalaya. Unfortunately, when I was there recently, I could only see a faint trickle in this seasonal waterfall, but, the sheer drop made for a fantastic sight. Not only is the waterfall beautiful, but the entire cliff view and the landscapes around it are outstanding. This waterfall must have offer a stupendous sight in full flow.
