The Seven Sisters Waterfalls in Northeast India. Nohsngithiang Falls
Nohsngithiang Falls is a picturesque waterfall located south of Mawsmai village in East Khasi Hills district in Meghalaya, India. The water falls from a height of 315 metres, segmented into seven different sections, giving it the epithet of the Seven Sisters Waterfalls. As the name suggests, it has seven different waterfalls that are strategically arranged side by side on a high, rugged cliff, and they look compelling even from a distance. The scintillating waterfall is seasonal and plunges over the limestone covered hills only during the monsoon.
Nohsngithiang Falls is symbolic of the seven sister states of the Northeast India namely Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Nagaland, Tripura, Mizoram, and Meghalaya. A spectacular view of the waterfall can be seen from nearby bridges and sheds. The beauty of the waterfall is indescribable during sunset when the rays of the sun fall on it creating a perennial rainbow, which is also one of the major highlights of the place.
