There is a viewpoint close to the main road, where you can park your vehicle and enjoy beautiful views of Seven Sister waterfalls. I am sure there must be hikes which take you closer to these falls but then you would need to stay around Sohra and have good enough time to explore it.

Above photograph shows another view from same viewpoint from where one can see Bangladesh land at a distance. This is something pointed by our guide that you are standing in India and lot of Bangladesh land is visible from here at distance. On a relatively clearer day, it seems huge landscape from Bangladesh is visible from this viewpoint which is located at quite high land.

Seven Sisters Waterfalls plunges over the top of limestone cliffs of the Khasi Hills only during the rainy season.The waterfalls get illuminated by the sun and the vibrant colors of the setting sun on the waterfalls makes it beautiful, which we couldn't witness as we had to head back to Guwahati the same day.

Above photograph shows Seven Sisters falls which is also called Nohsngithiang Falls and this photograph is clicked during the month of November. Supposedly these falls look even awesome during monsoons when rains are pouring continuously and there is more water in these falls.

In the Sohra area, there are several waterfalls because of the heavy rainfall including Nohkalikai Falls and Dain Thlen Falls. The Jaintia Hills and the Garo Hills also have many waterfalls, notably the Tyrchi Falls en route to Jowai and the Pelga Falls near Tura. While I was talking to some of the local folks in Eco Park of Cherrapunji, I realised that one should spend a week around Cherrapunji doing hikes to various waterfalls and that too during monsoons.
