Historically known as Sohra, Cherrapunjee (Cherrapunji) is considered as the wettest place on Earth. Away from the chaos and flurry of city life, it offers untouched natural beauty and a peaceful retreat.
No visit to Shillong can be complete without a trip to Cherrapunjee (Cherrapunji) (officially re-christened to its old name ‘Sohra’), known to every school child for receiving the highest rainfall in the world — a title now taken over by nearby Mawsynram, though. Cherrapunjee (Cherrapunji) falls directly in the path of the south-west monsoon, and the shape of the hills helps to funnel and converge monsoon clouds of a wide area to a relatively small area.

The standard day-tour circuit here is: Mawsmai Caves, Mawkdok Viewpoint, Nohkalikai Viewpoint, Eco Park, Seven Sisters’ Viewpoint, Thankharang Park and Khoh Ramhah. Mawsmai Caves are Meghalaya’s only lit-cave system open for tourists, studded with imaginative lime formations crafted over years by the slow dripping of water. Visit the Dainthlen Falls (11/2 km before Cherra, it’s a 7-km stretch to the right leading to the falls); the Nongsawlia Church with the distinction of being the first Christian church in this area built around the 1850s by Welsh missionaries; and Mawlong Peak which is a small hillock in Cherra town, a popular picnic spot. The Cherra Market is a local haat, held every eight days.

Unmarred landscape, striking waterfalls and the vibrancy of this place arrests you with its charm. The divine seven sisters waterfalls or Noh Kalikai Falls depicting the seven states of the North East is a picturesque site. For the adventurous, the unexplored caves around town are certainly a treat along with the various scenic trekking trails and walking paths. Unfurl the subtle yet astounding beauty of the wet town.

"Cherrapunjee"
reviewed on Jul 02 2014
Cherrapunjee is located in the state of Meghalaya which is also known as the Scotland Of East. It is known for heavy rainfall throughout the year and in fact it was once the region to receive highest annual rainfall. My experience there was amazing and I was stunned by the immense greenery, cleanliness and beauty. you will be above the clouds which it itself is an awsome feeling. Everything about Cherrapunjee is amazing. To someone visiting there, I would suggest to visit there during winters as there will be less clouds and so you'll be able to enjoy sightseeing. Don't miss the mawsanmai caves and the seven sister falls. Also take umbrella with yourself as rains there come suddenly. So plan your trip to Cherrapunjee and enjoy.
