After breakfast, proceed for the day trip to Cherrapunjee (56kms/2hrs/1300mtrs) - the heaviest rainfall area in the world. Shillong, this former British Raj hill station with its bustling market bazaar is the gateway for trips to the wettest area on earth. Cherrapunjee, south of Shillong, achieved fame as the wettest place on earth. The highest daily rainfall ever recorded fell here in 1876 - 104cm in 24 hours - but Cherrapunjee now shares its watery crown with nearby Mawsynram, whose overall annual rainfall recently pipped it at the post. Cherrapunjee's numerous falls are most impressive during the steamy monsoon season when awesome torrents of water plunge down to the Bangladeshi plains. The drive will give a spectacular view of deep gorges and the rolling hills luxurious with tropical vegetation that boast an innumerable variety of ferns, moss and orchids. At Cherrapunjee, explore the lime- stone caves. Return back to Shillong for overnight stay.
