See the Incredible Nohkalikai Falls

India

The tallest waterfall in India also has the saddest story. Nohkalikai is named for a local Cherrapunji legend, in which a village woman throws herself over the falls upon discovering she has been tricked into eating her infant daughter by her jealous second husband. Despite the tragic tale, the powerful falls can’t help but inspire with their vivid turquoise lagoon and evergreen forest setting.

Nohkalikai plunges an incredible 340 meters into a pool of green, fuelled by rainwater collected at the top of the plateau. The falls’ location near Cherrapunji is one of the wettest places on Earth, so there’s plenty of flow for most of the year, however, the falls are a lot smaller during the dry season between December and February.
