About Cherrapunjee

Cherrapunjee is a town in the hilly state of Meghalaya, India. It is also referred to as Sohra or Cherra. It was previously credited as the wettest place on earth, but now Mawsynram holds that record.

Cherrapunjee is known as the second wettest place on earth. The beautiful town is located at a distance of 15 km from Mawsynram. It receives rainfall throughout the year. The driest months are November, December, January and February. The town is dotted with waterfalls and deep gorges. With the green Khasi Hills in the background, the place lends itself to a stunning view. Cherrapunjee is also famous for its living bridges.
