Nohkalikai Falls, Meghalaya: The state of Meghalaya is known as ‘abode of clouds, so you can expect some gorgeous views here. India’s tallest plunge waterfall flows here, and it will not disappoint. In fact, it is so powerful that it never falls short of energy and gushes throughout the year. It is believed that the fall took its name after an incident where a local tribal woman by the name of Ka Likai threw herself into the waterfall after realizing she had eaten her own daughter. Spooky but intriguing, isn’t it?
