"Meghalaya's dew drop"

Cherrapunji Tourism

Earlier the wettest place on the Earth, Cherrapunjee in Meghalaya, also known as Sohra is known for its double-decker living root bridge. Mawsynram is now the wettest place on earth, but Cherrapunjee still holds the record for the highest recorded rainfall in a calendar year.

With a unique climate, the misty valleys and the waterfalls in the area, Cherrapunjee is the must-visit place if you plan to explore north-east India.

don�t miss the living double decker root bridges while in cherrapunjee. And don�t go and swim anywhere you like because that can be dangerous and fatal. And yes it rains there almost throughout the year.

- This is definitely in the top 5 of the wettest places on Earth - after all the debates. So obviously be well equipped to tackle that. Umbrellas, rain coats, gum boots, rubber slippers, floaters are the top priorities in your 'things to carry' list. Other than that, also carry mosquito repellant creams. If you plan to go during winters (December - Feb) do carry warm clothing.

It is very attractive place. But u must walking to see this double decker bridge. Approx 6km distance from your staring or entry gate. Total pathway is surrounded by green forest hills and falls. All natures are so pleasent. U may take time to reach your destiny but must see it
