Mawsmai Scalamite Caves

One of the most beautiful scalamite caves in the country. The caves are huge and worth the fee charged. However, you will need to navigate yourself through narrow paths and bend over a lot. Also, as there is presence of water inside the caves it is advised that one takes off their shoes (I didn't). Kids should be under constant supervision in this place and it can get scary and also children can get hurt if navigating alone.

Caves galore

The Mawsmai Caves near Cherrapunji are like the king of caves in India. It is one of the most easily accessible caves too. Proper routes and lighting are also available. Be wary of some of the wooden bridges though (managed to fall from one).
