Cherrapunji or Sohra, in the northeastern Indian state of Meghalaya, currently holds the distinction of being the second wettest place, on earth.

It’s a paradise for nature lovers with unique flora and fauna, native to the region. Add to that, caves, waterfalls and landscaping that’s straight out an idyllic Welsh town and clouds that float out to you and you see something that’s simply magical.

Go for a walk in the clouds or simply enjoy a million buckets of water being emptied over your roof when you visit Cherra in the Monsoons like I did.

Nothing will prepare you for the surreal experience…
