Mawsynram-Come And Get Drenched in The Rainiest Place on Earth
Mawsynram-a village situated in East Khasi hills in Meghalaya (one of the North-eastern states of India.)
Meghalaya, itself means the Abode of Clouds.
Yes, Mawsynram is the apparently the wettest place on Earth. Average annual rainfall 467.4 in.
Situated 65 km from Shillong-the capital of the state and 15 km from Cherapunji.
Just few kilo meters more and you are in Bangladesh-the neighbouring Country.
Maw in khasi means Stone and it is evident from the pictures why?
There’s a cave called Mawjymbuin, famous for gigantic stalagmites.
Before going there, it was so difficult to remember the name Mawsynram. Since childhood we read, its Cherapunji, which receives the maximum rains.
It was an amazing and out-of-the world experience.
