Segmented into distinct sections, this waterfall in Sohra barrels down a tall, mighty cliff and is the venue for spectacular sunsets……
There are not too many reasons why you would go out when it rains but the monsoons in Sohra turn that notion on its head. With a drop of more than 300 metres, Noh Sngi Thiang is one of the most impressive waterfalls you will see anywhere in India. Like a majestic jewel draped over the limestone cliffs, it is segmented into seven parts which drop into the misty forested plains. Because of this unique segmented formation, the falls are also popularly referred to as the Seven Sisters Falls.
Shutterbugs will love to spend entire days charting the different hues created because of the sunlight and the waters – the sunsets here are considered very special. The landscape is a distinctive one as the tabletop heights of the plateau abruptly end into a massive drop and you get a seat right on the edge.
Close to the Noh Sngithiang Falls is the Sohra Eco Park, a pleasant stop which provides the best vantage points if you want to admire the waterfalls, verdant canyons and lush slopes of Sohra. An interesting highlight in this park is a stream with a bridge over it that you need to cross to catch the views. Beyond the southern ranges of Meghalaya, one can also catch amazing views of the Bangladesh plains in fine detail, especially when the clouds clear away.
Getting to Nongsngithiang Falls – If you are travelling from Shillong, it is easy to get distracted on the way to Nongsngithiang Falls. This natural attraction is usually bunched with a longer sightseeing itinerary that includes spots like Mawsmai Caves, Noh Ka Likai Falls, and Khoh Ramhah. Many travellers like to stop at the scenic Mawkdok Bridge which is at around the halfway point of your short, picturesque drive.
