The top of a very large and very high waterfall near Mawlynnong in the East Khasi Hills, in Meghalaya (India)

I took this photo at the dry season, and there was very little water, making is easy to cross the river by foot.­

The huge rock sitting there is about 2 meter (6 feet) high.­ Locals say it is a holy rock.­ Some day the raging monsoon river water will send it crashing down the waterfall.­

The waterfall (behind the ridge on the left, not visible on this photo) goes down probably about 100 meter (70 feet), towards a very narrow gorge that seems unreachable without climbing ropes.­
