Known for its limestone formations and fossils, it is surrounded by the thick forest of Law Shynna. Arwah Cave is an absolute treat for adventurers and archaeology junkies. The cave itself is significantly larger than Mawsmai but only a small part of the cave has been opened for tourists.
It is about 300 meters which takes around 20 minutes to explore Overnight in a resort in Cherrapunji
After Breakfast and spending the morning at our beautiful resort, we will spend the rest of the day exploring the various waterfalls and caves of Cherrapunji We start our day from one of the most beautiful falls in Cherrapunji , Nohkalikai.

Ashort 20 min hikes down the falls will take you to the different steps of the falls and the beautiful view points. We will end the day by exploring the Mawsmai caves. Mawsmai 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.
Though the caves are quite long, only a distance of 150 meters is open for tourists while the remaining section is closed. This magnificent natural wonder is the handiwork of years of natural erosion and underground water

Gear up for an exciting trekking day. We take the bumpy 20km drive to the village of Tyrna We dedicate this day to learn about the fascinating living root bridge of Meghalaya. The Umshiang double decker living Root Bridge is the mecca of all the living root bridges in Meghalaya. Getting there is no simple task.
One has to descend 3500 cemented steps to Nongriat village that houses the Double decker living Root Bridge. After a descend of 1000 steps and trekking slightly off-route is a single decker living Root Bridge named Ritymmen, which hangs over a rain-fed river.
Being 50 metres long, Ritymmen is also the longest known living root bridge. The bridge shakes and swings as one walks over it making the experience more adventurous Further hike towards the double decker bridge passes through several small villages, where people are always smiling and welcoming. There are also a couple of beautiful footbridges on the way.
The double decker, hanging over the river, are created from the huge rubber trees sitting on either side. The roots are intertangled in a complex manner making the bridges more sturdy and strong. It’s truly a wonder in itself.
