Nongkhnum Road, West Khasi Hills
West Khasi Hills
Feel a green valley resonate with the thunder of the Weinia Falls, a powerful cascade on the fringes of India’s second-largest river island….
Plunging from a height of around a thousand feet, the Weinia Falls is one of Meghalaya’s many hidden treasures. Apart from the imposing cascades, the rather untouched and isolated natural location also brings cheers to nature enthusiasts and those looking for a quiet time off the beaten path.
The roar of the falls can be heard from a distance and the flow is incredibly powerful especially during the monsoons and the following months, when the Kynshi River swells. The Weinia Falls provides a distinctive picture because of a double-arched bridge in the background and its spray from its pool fills up the entire valley. A path created on the side of the falls for visitors allows you to follow the flow of the water and get nice views of the forests below.
To get here you will have to visit the magical Nongkhnum River Island, the location where the fast-flowing Kynshi River splits into two. The island is loaded with plenty of other attractions, including a splendid river beach. An early start is recommended if you are travelling from Shillong, or you can set up base in nearby Nongstoin town for a more complete exploration of the West Khasi Hills.
