Mystic Meghalaya: Nohkalikai Falls

Nohkalikai Falls is the tallest plunge waterfall in India. Its height is 1115 feet (340 metres). It is an amazing sight to behold. The waterfall is located near Cherrapunji, one of the wettest places on Earth & is one of the must see places in Meghalaya. We spent whole morning staring at the gigantic canvas of natural beauty.

“Water is the most perfect traveller because when it travels it becomes the path itself!” – Mehmet Murat ildan

According to legends, in a village called Rangjyrteh, upstream from Nohkalikai Falls, a woman named Likai resided but had to remarry after her husband died. Ka Likai (Ka is the prefix given for the female gender in Khasi) was left with her infant girl with no means of income. So she had to become a porter herself. Her work required her to leave her daughter unattended for long intervals but when she would be at home she would spend most of her time taking care of her infant. Ka Likai, who married a second time, couldn’t pay attention to her second husband. The jealous husband killed the infant and cooked her meat after throwing away her head and bones. When Ka Likai returned home, she saw nobody in the house but except for a meal that had been prepared. She wanted to go look for her daughter but she ate the meat as she was tired from work.

Ka Likai usually had a betel leaf after her meals but she found a severed finger near the place where she usually cut betel nuts and betel leaves. Ka Likai realized what had happened in her absence and went mad with anger and grief and started running as she swung a hatchet in her hand. She ran off the edge of the plateau and the waterfall where she jumped from was named Nohkalikai Falls after her.

 

Mystic Meghalaya: Shillong Street foods

For me the taste of street food is always better than  a fancy meal at a fine dining restaurant. Street Food culture in Shillong is very vibrant. The roads of Shillong are filled with colorful carts serving special foods. Any dish on this street is packed with an abundance of flavors at a minimum price.

Well!!  coming to Police street, this is the biggest market place and is located in the heart of the city. It is filled with street shops selling dresses, bags, umbrellas, woolen clothes, accessories etc.  From traditional hand looms to the multinational brands, from budget hotels to the luxury hotels, from street foods to the fancy expensive meals etc., This is really a good place to shop and it is a paradise to all the foodies..
