  • Day 2: Cherrapunjee - Full Day Caving
  • Meghalaya has more than 5000 caves out of which only 600 have been mapped till date. The Krem Mawmluh cave we take you to is a labyrinth of routes totaling about 7 kms.
    We reach Cherrapunjee, put on overalls and boots and with carbide lamps firmly put on head, we are all set for our adventure. We get into the cave through a small opening. Once inside, it is a different world altogether. We walk on sand and rocks, squeeze ourselves though narrow openings, sometimes on all fours. You will be able to see the impressive stalactite and stalagmite formations and water pools. Open your lunch hamper in one of the sandy chambers in the cave or finish caving and open the hamper outside on the rocks under the sun.
