Sohra

4
Waterfalls · Caves · Bridges
Offering access to jungle-clad valleys, verdant gorges, forested cliff tops, plunging waterfalls, illuminated caves, and living root bridges, Cherrapunjee tourism draws nature lovers from afar. Once regarded as the wettest place on planet, it greets travelers with a thick cover of mist, which envelopes its gorgeous landscapes. Home to ramshackle bungalows and remains of colonial churches, the town still retains the charm of a British summer retreat, which mixes oddly with the local culture. Domestic tourists flock here in July and August to see sparkling waterfalls. Outside the monsoon season, a trip to Cherrapunjee opens many possibilities for nature walks and wildlife watching. Take a look at our India tour planner to refine the details of your trip to Sohra.
