Welcome to the “Abode of Cloud”, Meghalaya. Let me take you on a trip to the wettest place on earth…yes, you guessed it right…Cherrapunjee.
Cherrapunjee, locally and officially known as Sohra, is 56 kms from Shillong, and a “must see” destination for all tourists. Apart from being the record holder for the heaviest rainfall, it was the headquarters of the Khasi/Jaintia province during British rule, which was later, moved to Shillong in 1864, due to the inconvenience caused by excessive rain during the monsoon months.
