Located on a plateau in the southern edge of the Khasi Hills in Meghalaya facing the plains of Bangladesh, Cherrapunji is one of India’s most picturesque locations. Gushing waterfalls, mysterious caves, lush green hills and amazing living root bridges are a few things that make it a magical wonderland you must visit. The heaviest downpours span approximately five months from May until September, so the best time to visit Cherrapunji is between the months of October and May, when the weather remains cool and pleasant.
