Nohsngithiang Falls - Review
Nohsngithiang falls is the fourth highest waterfall in India. They plunge down at a height of 1,035 ft and look spectacular with their natural beauty. This fall is located a few kilometers from Cherrapunjee and is one of the major tourist attractions.
Also known as Seven Sister Falls or Mawsmai Falls, the latter being the name of a village, this waterfall looks even more stunning during monsoons when the volumes of water are added to it. There is a trek that leads up to this waterfall. The Seven Sister Falls derives its name from the seven streams that flow down the plateau like feature. During the monsoons, when the streams are filled with excess of water, the fall flows down rapidly forming a perennial rainbow much to the delight of tourists. Below the falls there has formed a plunge pool with unusual green colored water. The postcard image of Cherrapunji, this fall enthralls people who look at it.

Nohsngithiang Falls, Cherrapunji Reviews
An amazing place where sky and mountains meet. Seven sisters falls as the name suggests is the place where there are 7 waterfalls sadly I observed that only 4 were flowing may be it was the summer season that’s why as I visited in mid May. But the beauty of the place is impeccable. The clouds are over you every time, Moving here and there, lush green mountains and trees in front of you. It’s a perfect majestic place.
Heavenly beautiful. The view will make you statue. A place not to miss during Shillong visit. Surely you will feel refreshed.
Nature is wonderful. Though the sisters were not in full force (we visited a little too early, before monsoon) it's a beautiful view. For those who are new to north-east or Meghalaya, please carry atleast one warm jacket or sweater. It might be bright and sunny one minute but will be foggy the next. If it's not very cloudy (which is unlikely most of the time, remember you are in the land of clouds) you might get a glimpse of valley on Bangladesh side. Nature lovers paradise.
The seven sisters falls can be only seen during rainy season when the streams are replineshed with water. The view of the falls and the valley is breathtaking. One can spend hours looking over the mountains and falls. If you are lucky you may see clouds floating by you during early morning hours. There are multiple view points in the vicinity and you can even get binoculars on rent here.
Awesome view. In the monsoon the clouds will cover the falls. When the clouds are there you can also enjoy the clouds. But you have to wait for the falls when the clouds are there.
