Beadon Bishop falls are situated near Guwahati in Meghalaya, ‘the land of the rain clouds’. This is one of the wettest regions on earth; the lush hills contain many waterfalls which are brought about by the Monsoon-laden winds that come of the Bay of Bengal. The two falls pictured drop over one hundred metres; they were photographed by Oscar Jean Baptiste Mallitte in the 1860s.
