Of Sunsets, Fog And Waterfalls – Meghalaya

Meghalaya is a land blessed with the abundant bounties of nature. Some known, some not so much. And that is what makes Meghalaya all the more exciting. The so many unexplored places scattered all over the state. From fogged out for days Cherrapunjee, the rainiest place in the world to the grand canyons of Laitlum. And from the roaring tall waterfalls to the calm and transparent waters of the Umnkot river, the state of Meghalaya is so much, packed within a small area.

Waterfalls are the jewels of Meghalaya, especially during the monsoons. And of these, there are few which are more elusive than the others. The Wah Kaba waterfall that falls between Shillong and Cherrapunjee is one such fall which remains elusive more often than not.

Another breathtakingly beautiful but not so commonly visited waterfall is the Rainbow waterfall, more than an hour’s walk from the Nongriat village.
