2. Seven sisters waterfalls & Nohkalikai waterfalls, Cherrapunji, Meghalaya
At 340 meters, the Nohkalikai waterfall is counted among the highest waterfalls in India. Nohkalikai in local Khasi language translates to 'the jump of Likai'- as this is where a lady named Likai jumped and committed suicide to mourn loss of her baby as per Khasi legends.
Seven sisters waterfalls although shorter in height as compared to the highest waterfalls in India, are no less when it comes to grandeur with which they come gushing down the hills.
Both these waterfalls can easily be accessed from Shillong- the state capital by means of private cars or government sightseeing buses.
