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.

Mawsmai Cave

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 Sohra

This place is highly picturesque, visit caves, double-decker root bridge which is a marvel in modern civilization. The whole place is surprisingly quite and pleasant most of the time. There is a place called Dawki with a river Umngot river. The water of this river is extremely clear, clearest I have seen in India, being at the border of India and Bangladesh, makes it a popular tourist spot. Visit Mawlynnong, cleanest village in India. It is an hour away from Dawki and the route to this place is through quite forest of areca nut, you can smell it all along the way. The villagers have done an amazing job of keeping it green and clean. You will not feel they have deliberately done to attract tourists, however, they have made it a habit to have everything in place.
