Travel Talk

Nohkalikai gets its name from a local legend of a girl named Ka Likai who had leapt off the cliff next to this waterfall.

Previously, one could only view the Nohkalikai from a distant viewpoint across the falls, but recently, steps have been constructed which will take you right to the bottom of the falls. It is advisable for people with spondylitis, asthma, etc. not to descend, as climbing back up hundreds of stairs could be a rigid task.

There are also various food joints and restaurants around the area where one could get several types of food that ranges from the local Khasi delicacies to North and South Indian dishes, and even Chinese noodles. There are also small shops where one can purchase handmade local products of the region.
