Mawsmai cave is situated around 6 kilometers from Cherrapunjee and is considered to be one of the most significant attractions of Cherrapunji. These caves are formed out of limestone and enjoy the distinction of being the only caves in Meghalaya that are lit enough so that the tourists can enjoy its natural formations with wonder.

These caves are quite deep and long although you can only cover a distance of 150 meters inside them. The rest of these caves are closed for the visitors. The stalactites and stalagmites caves have innumerable forms, shapes and sizes inside leaving one to imagine as many life forms as possible. This magnificent natural wonder is the handiwork of years of natural abrasion and underground water. Do visit these caves if you are looking for something other than the open natural wonders in Cherrapunji.

  • Absolutely stunning, beautiful, nature made caves! Sculpted in years... marvellous shapes and sizes and textures! Ticket is for 20/- but it enthralls the heart manifold! Beautiful. Must visit.

  • Set deep in the forested area, this place seems to come directly out of an alien movie set! The hanging stalactites and stalagmites create a spine chilling eerie feeling. There are narrow spaces for which healthier people have to take precautions before crawling in. This place is NOT for claustrophobic people.

  • Truly a nature's wonder. Although it's a very touristy spot it's worth visiting if you're around and look at the beautiful natural formations and twinkling stones. One has to crouch and walk inside the caves, not recommended for the very elderly

  • In one word its a nice cave.There are two caves one is easy to move everybody can move easily, but in some area is too narrow. The other cave is not for the general public. Overall inside the cave's beauty is too good.

  • Great place to visit...caves are always amazing,one has to lean,bend and crawl to walk the path..but this cave us different as there is not complete dark there...the shapes of stones are really intriguing..even small children enjoyed the ride.. But there should be one guide to tell the facts mixed with myth... geographical as well historical facts..
