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.


It’s a cloudy world here

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.



You are above the clouds and down there…it’s Bangladesh


Bountiful rains means evergreen falls


Seven sister falls


It’s lush and green all around


Maw in khasi means Stone and it is evident from the pictures why?

There’s a cave called Mawjymbuin, famous for gigantic stalagmites.


You have to use flexibility if you want to come back on surface

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.

    Ah!!! Mawsynram. The place where I grow up, did my schooling. That cave? Hindu pilgrims use to worship and put some money there. Kids use to go and steal the money when the pilgrims are gone!!!
