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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Arwah Cave and Sa-I-Mika Park. Get outdoors at Daiñthlen Falls and Mawkdok Dympep Valley. There's still lots to do: Head underground at Mawmluh Cave, pause for some serene contemplation at Nongsawlia Presbyterian Church, take in the spiritual surroundings of Don Bosco Shrine, and take in the dramatic scenery at Wah Kaba Falls.
