Mawsmai Cave - Review
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
Enjoyed the little adventure This is a small and wet cave with little adventure for the elderly. And since we were a couple traveling with a 2yr old, taking the kid through the cave made for our little adventure as well. Due to rains all day, this was pretty wet and slippery at places. So its recommended to remove your footwear, for proper grip. Overall enjoyed the visit.
The experience inside the cave was awesome. Formations were just mind blowing. But be careful about small children because some places are very narrow and little slippery. Don't wear shoes inside as water is everywhere from the roof to the ground. Must visit ....
Superb. Experience the amusement of crossing through a natural cave... Thrill of water sipping water over your head. Natural lime stone ceiling with natural design. The cave has been maintained well by the management, lights have been put inside so that the track is easily visible. Narrow passages brings in the excitement.
This place is damn good. The cave becomes narrow as you approaches deep inside and the cool water droplets continously falls over your body throughout the journey.From the shapes of rocks, one can see how the water has carved his way out. Rocks are slippery. There is cold water on the surface and chilled drops falling on your back makes the cave journey very thrilling.
Not really a must visit place because it has hardly anything to offer. The caves are indeed a structurally and composition wise unique but as a regular tourist, there is nothing extraordinary to see. You need to enter the cave from one side and come out through the other end. The cave is not well maintained or not even lit so it's a difficult task to cross it especially if you are visiting during the rains. My previous visit during November was perfect and I crossed the caves but this year's may visit had it all damp and muddy that I decided not to get inside. There is 20-25 steps to climb before you reach the cave so beware of you are already tired of climbing !
