Everyone has a story to share when it comes to monsoons; a romantic date, savouring the signature pakora and chai or getting drenched with your friends. These places with monsoon all year round will let you have all the fun, which otherwise is a bit challenging at other places where rains don’t greet you that often.

Mawsynram- the wettest in the world

A small village in the Khasi Hills of Meghalaya, Mawsynram is the wettest places in the world with an annual rainfall of 1,141 cm. This place offers a picturesque view of the sparkling waterfalls, Nohkalikai Falls and green mountains that make you feel closer to nature. Not to miss are the Mawjymbuin Caves that boast of a natural massive stalagmite (Shivalinga).

Cherrapunjee-of rains & waterfalls

About 10 km from Mawsynram, Cherrapunjee or Sohra is the second wettest destination in the world. Blessed with rains 365 days, this place receives approximately 1,087 cm rainfall annually.


High on monsoon tourism, Cherrapunjee is where love birds can spend some quiet time with each other. A kiss in the rain sounds super romantic, doesn’t it? ;-)

Amboli-rainy rhapsody

Located in Sahyadri Hills, Amboli is a tranquil hill station less explored. Surrounded by steep valleys, lush green forests and beautiful waterfalls, this place will leave you awestruck. An impromptu trip to Amboli is not a bad idea at all, as this hill station receives over 750 cm annual rainfall.
