One of the major tourist attractions of Meghalaya, Seven Sisters Waterfalls is located 4 km from Cherrapunjee town and 1 km south of Mawsmai Village. This fall is also called Mawsmai Falls or Nohsngithiang Falls. It is in East Khasi Hills district. It is said to be one of the tallest waterfalls in India. It has a height of 315 m (1,033 ft) and has an average width of 70 m (230 ft).

The Seven Sister Falls derives its name from the seven streams that flow down the plateau-like feature. During the rainy season, the falls plunge over the top of limestone cliffs of the Khasi Hills. The seven segments of the waterfalls symbolize the seven sister states in the northeast, namely Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Nagaland, Tripura, Mizoram, and Meghalaya.

The falls are made up of many different falls and form a curtain of water falling down steeply from a cliff. The separate falls take separate routes and separate forms, providing an array of intermingling water, giving it a beautiful face. The scenery of the sheer cliff is amazing. As the Seven Sisters falls is a rain-fed fall, the best time to visit it is during the monsoon, when the streams are flooded with rainwater which flows down rapidly forming a perennial rainbow. You can get a magnificent view of the falls from the viewpoint at Mawsmai village as there is no possibility to get into the water. Tourists can also view the falls from the Eco Park, which has been constructed on a plateau on top of the falls.

The Seven Sisters waterfalls are very popular among tourists coming to this region as its easily accessible and provides a heartwarming and calm view of the surroundings.
