Mawsmai Cave

The road on which you will find the Mawsmai Caves is the Mawsmai Cave Road. These caves are a group of extremely well preserved natural caves. These are under the supervision of the Tourism Department of Meghalaya. The way the deposition of the limestones and stalagcites have taken place makes you wait and imagine what figure each of the caves would resemble and this is another interesting part here. Also, the Tourism Department have worked towards the cleanliness and comfort of the tourists and thus put up eco- friendly lights all along the caves. Due to this, the tourists are at an advantage and can take a look at the variety colour moss and also the algae on the inner walls of the caves.
We went to see seven sister falls, Mawsmai caves and Eco park to close for the day. To our luck, it was not raining then but started pouring down as we reached resort at night.

It takes around 30 minutes to cross one of the longest caves in Meghalaya, the Mawsmai Cave. This cave has now been fully decked up for tourists and travelers alike. Artificial lights will guide you inside where natural light cannot and the narrow gaps to squeeze through will give you the thrills. You might have to crawl at some points as well. But do visit this place, it's worth your adventure streak.

The exploring doesn't stop with landscapes, cafe and waterfalls but it gets deeper as our next stop was Mawsmai caves. Eluding the drizzle and soft rays of sun we entered into the deep dark and mysterious world of caves located 6km away from the town of Sohra. The darkness felt alluring and our explorer hearts were thumping to enter it, with dagger like formations, steep and narrow passage, glistening walls and a hole in the cave roof was ethereal. The caves were lit up by halogen lamps helping the tourist to navigate their way in 40feet deep cave.
We visited a number of waterfalls in Cherrapunji and experienced caving at Krem Mawsmai.Stay at Cafe Cherrapunji.

Popularly known as the Mawsmai Cave, which are situated only a half a kilometer from the town, this is the most splendid place to be explored during your trip. What makes it a reason for visiting Cherrapunji is the fact that these are the fourth longest caves in the entire Indian sub-continent, which also have a little pool inside formed by five different rivers.
