Living Root Bridge

This is something that should definitely not be missed, no matter what. As I went further along the path to the bridge, I felt like I was entering a fairy-tale land. This place is nothing short of magical.

Nohkalikai Falls

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.
