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

  • If you are strong stout and energetic, Mawsmai Cave is the right place for you to enjoy nature's creation. You have to put off your shoes and enter the cave bare footed. Inside the cave sometimes you have to crawl through narrow and slippery passage. But when you come out of the cave you will be extremely glad, l am sure, for completing such a painstaking short adventurous journey.

  • This is the only cave I have ever been to. It is beautiful, exciting and very slippery! Parts of it smell like piss and there is garbage everywhere but the awesome sensation of crawling through narrow rocky pathways and wading through cold cave water, all while it 'rains' down upon you, is worth it. Visit on a weekday to avoid the crowd. Outside you could visit the sacred forests full of huge caterpillars and weird trees. The entrance boasts of various eateries and restrooms and a huge parking space.

  • It has so many amazing structures and formations in small length with water dripping from roof. it might be difficult for elderly persons but must visit for rest. You should use sport sandals as there will be some water inside at places. they have facility to keep your shoes outside but better to wear something.

  • See the number of people around this. People literally got scared, I loved it and have full journey video. I must say that such unique work of nature by balancing the way structure, the air and aquatic clutter is just unique. The water which is present is sacred and coolest of the place. Good visit

  • This place can give you an actual feel of caves in rainforest.. There is foot level of water in it.. hole which shows the upper forest.. One of the he best caves I have ever visited.!!
