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.

This is from my 2018 archive when I visited this alien world in Meghalaya in the North East of India. This is from Mawsnai caves. This is located in Cherrapunji. Cherrapunji is the place which has the highest rainfall in the world. These caves are about 5 km from Sahora which is the main area of Cherrapunji. When I was inside the cave I literally felt like I was in an alien world altogether. This is the limestone cave which is one of its kind in the world. Enjoy the video and let me know how was it.
Serendipity
The next day was 14th of February and I woke up early to visit the Mawsmai caves. The entrance of the caves is marked by 2 monolith rocks on either side. The monoliths seen in Meghalaya are a symbol of remembrance. The site was absolutely vacant and I was really excited to venture though an uninhabited cave. Rocky and uneven with extremely narrow passages the cave walls actually look beautiful with the aging of years. Water dripping from the roof of the cave for years and maybe decades cut the rocks into beautiful textures and shapes. It’s really thrilling to venture through a dimly lit rugged cave with nothing but the sound of dripping water and your own footsteps and some bats seldom flapping their wings!

Then we reached to Mawsmai caves, this cave was quite difficult to explore compared to Arwah caves. Here the paths are very narrow with water spilling everywhere. We need to bend down and move within, distance was small and we covered easily. There was cave2 nearby and we started moving in. It has to be climbed up and down, crawl and move kind of. This is the best one of all the caves.

We found it a different experience since that was our first cave visiting experience and from there it was an 1hr journey to reach living root bridge.
