Hidden trekking trails, gushing waterfalls, pristine natural pools, amazing living root bridges, mysterious caves and adorable nature are few things, one must come to Cherrapunji for. It is situated on the southern edge of the Khasi hills in Meghalaya. Its dramatic location on a plateau, around 600 meters above the surrounding valleys, makes it one of India’s most picturesque locations. The valleys are naturally lush and full of diverse vegetation and face the plains of Bangladesh.
Nearly 60 km from Shillong and 148 km from Guwahati, it can be easily accessed by an all-weather road round the year. 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.
