About Kynrem Falls
Kynrem Falls was another one of the tall waterfalls that had fairly low to decent flow during our visit, but it had clearly seen better days a few months earlier during the monsoon. Even though this falls did have some appreciable flow, it bordered on disappointing. But perhaps the one thing about this waterfall that we didn’t really experience in any of the other waterfalls that we’d been to was the everpresent sounds of the chorus of cicadas practically drowning out the faint roar of the waterfall itself.
According to our Assamese guide, the falls would have been decorated with many other parallel plumes of cascading water during the monsoon. But even though the main falls still performed while we were there, I believe it maybe another month or two when the falls would go completely dry or would trickle disappointingly until a fresh batch of moisture from the next year’s monsoon. I presume the monsoon must be the preferred time to visit for Indian tourists perhaps to escape the sweltering heat and humidity experienced elsewhere in the country.
Our best views of this waterfall was from a lookout deck within the Thangkharang Park, which was a peaceful little botanical garden containing some benches and picnic areas for relaxing. There were other viewpoints of this waterfall, including a road that ran across its bottom (on its way to Bangladesh, which we could see from the lookout in the park). However, we were content with just the contextual views from the viewing deck.
Kynrem Falls is located near Cherrapunjee or Sohra (about 12km away from the village there) in the Meghalaya State. As mentioned earlier, the best views were from Thangkharang Park, but there was a turnoff where another 7km further down the road would’ve led to the bottom of the waterfall besides the road.
