| 3 min read

Cherrapunjee is a small picturesque town surrounded by East Khasi Hill in the Northeastern state of Meghalaya. It is famous for being one of the wettest places on Earth, so make sure to carry a poncho.

The town and the surrounding area have several waterfalls that tourists can visit, of which the nearby Seven Sisters Waterfall is the most famous. If you are not scared of small spaces, do explore Mawsmai Caves. Here, children will love to spot fossils on the walls. Also, consider witnessing the unique living root bridges. The famous Double Decker Root Bridge, which is an hour’s drive away, is a must-visit sight that can only be accessed via a 3,000 steps trek.
