We had an awesome time exploring this cave. It’s darker and less crowded than Mawsmai Cave. It’s also spacious than Mawsmai which is very confining at places. You can actually exit the cave in Mawsmai, but there is no exit in Arwah Cave, you have to come back the same way you came in. Hopefully in the near future we get to explore the entire cave.
This cave doesn’t fall in the tour package of Cherrapunjee, you will have to personally ask your driver to take you to this cave.
Top Travel tips:
1) To enter the cave, entrance fees is needed.
20 INR for adults
10 INR for children
Extra fees will be taken in case you carry cameras.
2) Make sure to take torch or use your cellphone flashlight as the Caves are not lit in every section.
3) Wear comfortable shoes with good grip as it is slippery inside.
4) Do not wander off to the areas that are off limits to tourists.
So this was our little new year trip to Cherrapunjee and the Arwah Caves.
And this is not only for a new year trip, you can go anytime, a weekend getaway is perfect for couples or family or group of friends. If you want to explore Cherrapunjee extensively, might suggest more than a weekend.
Hope this post helps you in planning your trip to this Offbeat cave exploration.
