About Mawsmai Cave, Cherrapunji

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.

Mawsmai Cave, Cherrapunji Reviews - Write a Review

  • The caves are very nice but not maintained at all. In attractions like these you must have an informative walks with guides. Just one board with basic information doesn't help. The surface is slippery so make sure you mind your steps.

  • Amazing and thrilling experience. Quiet sufficiently lit . Tends to be slippery at places. Kids will love it. Too good for photography. Enough parking space available Must try in Sohra

  • Thrilling and adventurous.. beautiful place. Natural limestone cave. Acidic water forms different shapes.. must visit. Many places to eat and rest in front of the cave. Parking is also there. Entry fee is 10 per person 50 for camera.

  • The place has good parking facilities. There are a few restaurants around. The entry fee is 20 per head. Not for the claustrophobic. You need about 15 mins to go through.

  • Beautiful limestone caves... Do visit the food cafes and try the north Indian food prepared by the local khasi people.. you will find it better than that available in North India. Loved the khasi people more than the place.. these people are so naive that they won't overcharge you like at other tourist places
