The spectacular Mawsmai Falls, locally known as Nohsngithiang Falls, is very close to the Mawsmai village, and is on the way to Cherrapunji. It is a seven-segmented waterfall, which plunges over the top of limestone cliffs of the Khasi Hills. Seven different water falls cascading down the hill is quite a view. Each water fall signifies one state of the North east, hence, named "Seven Sister Falls".
Mawsmai Falls , on a bright and sunny day, is a treat to the eye as it reflects the sun's rays and gives out vibrant colours in all directions. Nevertheless, even on a cloudy day, you can actually see small patches of cloud move below your feet and around the waterfalls, which in itself is another wonder.
