This waterfall is nicknamed the Niagara of South India, Athirappilly Falls is the largest waterfall in Kerala. This waterfall is located on the Chalakudy River, which calls the Western Ghats its home. The fall is 80 feet high.

The fourth waterfall is the Chitrakote Falls which is a natural waterfall on the Indravati River, in Chhattisgarh’s Bastar district. It is located on the Indravati River. As the fall has a horseshoe shape, it is usually compared to the world-famous Niagara  Falls in the United States and is also called the Small Niagara Falls. During the rainy season, the mist from the waterfall reflects sun rays, and rainbows are created, which grab viewers’ attention.

Nohkalikai Falls is the tallest plunge waterfall in India. The waterfall is located near Cherapunji, in the Indian state of Meghalaya. Cherapunji finds its name in the list of the wettest places on Earth. The rainwater collected on the summit of a comparatively small plateau fed the fall and the fall increases in strength during the monsoon season. A plunge pool located below the falls can always be found filled with water of an unusual shade of green color.

With these amazing places, you can bring new joy to your monsoon days.
