Cherrapunji, Shillong

Last Updated:21 May 2009 0 Comments

Rated #4 out of 13 attractions in Shillong

One of the more popular things to do in Shillong is to take a day trip to Cherrapunji or Sohra as it is locally known. It receives the wettest place on earth. The 56 km drive itself will take your breath away as you cruise along the tops of rolling hills, halt at roadside lakes, visiting the waterfalls that pop along the route.

It is one of the best roads in the country for motorbiking.
The clear skies add clarity to the green beneath. Along the sides of the roads you will glimpse the many stone monoliths erected in honour of the local chiefs. Within Cherrapunji, you can visit the Ramakrishna complex which operates a charity school and have their area headquarters located here. The British Cemetery is another popular tourist spot in Cherrapunji. For the more adventurous, a visit to the local limestone caves is a must. Your cab driver can take you there and these stalactite and stalagmite-filled caves are a must-see sight in Shillong.
