Once there took place a very sad incident. There was a woman here named LiKai who was married to a very nice man who was a porter and after a few months of marriage she also gave birth to a beautiful daughter. Sadly after a few days, her husband died while carrying iron to Sylhet. She was left all alone without any support and a little girl to feed along with herself. Finding no other option she also took up the job of a porter. Since she was having no time at all to look after her daughter she was remarried. After this also she had no time to look after her husband or her daughter. Her husband grew angry and one day out of frustration he killed the little girl and cooked her as a meal. When LiKai was back home she could not see her daughter but instead of looking for her she decided to have the meal which look very good. After she had finished and was going to take a betel leaf, she found a severed little finger and soon understood what had happened. She lost her senses immediately and went mad. She kept on running and at the end jumped in this waterfall. After this the local people named it NohKaLiKai in which Noh means jump of, Ka is the term used for Meghalayan women and LiKai is the name. So, it means Jump of KaLiKai. This is at present a popular tourist attraction where you will find beautiful sceneries. The force of the waterfalls is maximum during the summers and monsoon and least during the winters.

The road on which you will find the Mawsmai Caves is the Mawsmai Cave Road. These caves are a group of extremely well preserved natural caves. These are under the supervision of the Tourism Department of Meghalaya. The way the deposition of the limestones and stalagcites have taken place makes you wait and imagine what figure each of the caves would resemble and this is another interesting part here. Also, the Tourism Department have worked towards the cleanliness and comfort of the tourists and thus put up eco- friendly lights all along the caves. Due to this, the tourists are at an advantage and can take a look at the variety colour moss and also the algae on the inner walls of the caves.

About Cherrapunjee

On returning towards Cherrapunji, we stopped at a place from where we saw the lands of Bangladesh. I also had received a SMS from BanglaLink network as an International Roaming activation alert. We then went to our next spot, the Eco Park. It was a very nice place but generally pleasant to view in monsoons (mid of April to September). A small waterfall appeared on the back side of Eco Park which becomes a very huge waterfall in the monsoons. There was also a well named "Missing Well" which had a mysterious water flow in it. I was going to enter for the first time inside a cave and that too in a 250 meter long cave. So I was very excited about the looks inside a limestone cave. Right on the entry gate there were beautiful naturally curved limestone structures which were fascinating to watch. As we went inside, it was very dark with small lights placed to see the natural design created by God. At some places, metal bridges were made to cross two big rocks. We later came to know that water flows under these bridges in the monsoons.
