At a distance of 7.5 km from Cherrapunji Bus Stand, Wah-kaba falls is a seasonal waterfall located in Cherrapunji, Meghalaya. Situated on Shillong - Cherrapunji Road, it is one of the popular waterfalls in Cherrapunji and among the best places to experience Cherrapunji Tourism.

The waterfall drops from a steep rocky side and plunges hundreds of meters down to a gorge. The water flowing through the falls is crystal clear but surprisingly the water tastes nasty. Situated right on the road side, it is easily accessible and needs a short hike to reach the waterfall viewpoint. Visitors can even go to the edge of the waterfall where one can see some safety barriers in place to prevent accidents. One should be careful standing on top of the waterfall as well, it's very windy everywhere. There is also a smaller waterfall on the way to the much bigger Wah-kaba.

The best time to visit the falls is during the rainy season. The entire area is rain fed and hence the glory of the falls depends on rains.
