Cherrapunji

You must have read about Cherrapunji (or Cherrapunjee), even in your schools as a place in Meghalaya, India for receiving the highest rainfall each year. Earlier the first, but now it is the second wettest place on the earth after Mawsynram, also in the same state. Nothing except this has ever been mentioned about Cherrapunji though it has much more to offer. Better known as the ‘Jewel Crest of Meghalaya’, Cherrapunji nestles in the East Khasi Hills at a distance of about 56 km from Shillong, the capital of Meghalaya. Cherrapunji has many waterfalls, living bridges, limestone caves and sight scenes to enjoy.
