 Nohkalikai fall

#Nohkalikai Falls
Nohkalikai Falls was one of the taller waterfalls in India. It made a dramatic free leap from a fairly well-forested drainage into a rocky base accompanied by a pretty blue pool. While Julie and I noticed that most of the waterfalls in the Cherrapunjee area had really lost their luster outside of the monsoon season, this waterfall seemed to have maintaind its perforance.I suspect that the relatively healthy drainage upstream of the falls was largely due to the moisture-retaining foliage that remained forested and untouched (though this might be threatened based on what we saw, which we’ll get into later). In fact, we even saw a pair of light flowing companion waterfalls making similar dramatic leaps off the escarpment. I’d imagine in wetter times, there could have been many more companion waterfalls flanking the main one.

 #Kaziranga National Park
A World Heritage Site, the Kaziranga National Park is one of the most, if not the most, visited attractions of Assam. Kaziranga National Park has over 1800 one-horned-rhinoceros roam freely through the dense jungles and vegetation of the park. The Kaziranga National Park was declared as a ‘Tiger Reserve’ in 2006 owing to the high density of tiger population in the park. Other exotic wildlife thriving in the national park includes elephants, water buffalos, and swamp deer. Birdlife International has declared Kaziranga National Park as an ‘Important Bird Area’ for conservation of avifaunal species. You can go for an hour long elephant ride through the rhinoceros populated areas. You can also try a thrilling jeep safari through the dense forests of Kaziranga.
