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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Nongsawlia Church and Don Bosco Shrine. Take a break from the city and head to Nohkalikai Falls and Mawsmai Cave. Change things up with these side-trips from Sohra: Church of the Epiphany (in Mawlynnong), Wah Rilang (in Nongstoin) and Bophill Falls (in Jowai). There's still lots to do: take in the views from Double Decker Living Root Bridge, admire the sheer force of Rainbow Falls, stroll around Eco Park, and explore the fascinating underground world of Mawmluh Cave.
