The wettest place in the world. Your class 8 text book says so. All the trivia books say so. And when you land in Cherrapunji, you’ll actually feel so.

The locals, contrary to all expectations, call it Sohra. The story goes that the British officers corrupted ‘Sohra’ to ‘Churra’ and finally we got Cherrapunji. Nomenclature aside, Cherrapunji/Sohra is the land of mist, rolling hills and green rain. Green because the whole countryside looks freshly washed and pulsing with the sap of life.

Cherrapunji receives the highest rainfall in the world. It also holds two Guinness Book World Records – for receiving the highest rainfall in a year (904.9 inches) and for receiving the highest rainfall in a month (366.14 inches).
