large waterfall near mawlynnong (india)

Large waterfall near Mawlynnong in the East Khasi Hills, in Meghalaya (India)

The waterfall goes down probably about 100 meter (70 feet), towards a very narrow gorge that seems unreachable without climbing ropes.­ Only the top of the waterfall is visible on this photo.­

This was during the dry season.­ You can imagine the raging waters during the monsoon.­ It was already a bit dangerous scrambling down steep rocks to reach this point, after that that the waterfall becomes vertical and very high, and there is no easy viewpoint.­

The highlight if this trip was the Maha Kumba Mela Hindu Festival, the largest human gathering on earth, which happens once every 12 years.­

Other regions visited include the springs of the Ganges river, Varanasi, the Konark sun temple.­
