I always thought of visiting this place as a kid since my school days. We knew it since then that Cherrapunji is known as the wettest place in the world. It fascinated me from distant apart and the images on Google displayed would even make me more adamant to make the trip happen for me.
Yes! I had to wait for years to finally get my itchy feet step into this wettest land but it did happen and in the best possible way. I packed my bags and with no plans made, landed to Guwahati as I had a local friend to take me to all places and honestly, no one can be a better guide than them. They had chalked down my entire itinerary for 5-6 days. However, Cherrapunji can easily be covered in 2 days.
I had landed in Guwahati on the 10th evening and decided to rest and spend the night there. We left for Shillong in the afternoon and had reached there within 3 hours enjoying the drive and stopping by for some picturesque views. You will find locals selling mulberries, cherries and other fruits and spicy chat pata food.
