"The wettest place on Earth"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted May 15, 2014
It is the wettest place on Earth. Every time there is rainfall, and this place is covered with fog. You must carry an umbrella. When you travel in a car, the scenes that you get to see around is really wonderful.

"Experience the thrill"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Apr 20, 2014
Everybody who goes to Shillong-Cherrapunji....should go to this place. There is a natural cave with a naturally made Shiva Linga. You can hear a stream of water flowing across at the very bottom, but it is extremely difficult to reach there. The natural flora and fauna gives a thrill to the nature lovers.

"With rains for company"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Apr 16, 2014
Around 3 hours from Shillong, is the rainiest place on planet earth. Funny though, you will find the place wet, with a light drizzle but rarely will you find it raining cats and dogs. Must visit for the caves nearby.

"Serene place with amazing beauty"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Mar 27, 2014
Mawsynram is presently considered the wettest place on earth. I am very much confident that everyone visiting Mawsynram would surely like the place. There are many waterfalls in the place. The road from Shillong to Mawsynram is awesome. The journey is superb with breathtaking view all around.

"Stalagmites"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Oct 6, 2013
In Mawsynram, there is a cave called the Mawjymbuin Cave,known for a massive Shivling shaped stalagmite. Beautiful setting all around,like at every destination in Meghalaya,expect some climbing up and down a flight of stairs. This place apparently clinched the title of wettest place on the earth from Cherrapunji.
