ABOUT CHERRAPUNJEE


 
 


 

::  Cherrapunji -- Where is Cherrapunji ::
Cherrapunjee, a nature lover’s paradise, is a small town located on the southern edge of Khasi Hills (25.30°N 91.70°E) at an altitude of about 4,823 feet (1,484 m) above mean sea level. It falls in the East Khasi Hills District of the Indian State of Meghalaya (one of the seven states in North East India with Assam to its North and sharing an international border with Bangladesh to its South).
 
It is credited as being the second wettest place on Earth. However, nearby Mawsynram currently holds that record. Though, it still holds the world record for the most rainfall in a calendar month and in a year.
 
Valleys around Cherrapunji, however, are covered with lush and very diverse vegetation, containing numerous endemic species of plants, including Meghalaya subtropical forests.
