deep underground walking through the interconnected caves is an amazing experience, difficult to express in words how it feels to be in the belly of a mountain

We have been here last week.There is a bit of crawling to be done here as the passages are quite narrow.Its good for adventurous people.Elderly people n people with infants can give it a miss.

The natural cave is a must see place in Cherrapunjee- The place closes at 5.30 hence would advise you to go there before 5 Pm, very interesting place to visit.

Hello people, I would like to travel to this place by end of April ! My queries are as follows . Would it be appropriate season or time to visit ? . How much time does it take for a round trip from Shillong to this place ? . What would be the entry fee and timings? Thanks in Advance Ps- I have only 24hrs time at Shillong , that is from 3pm day 1 to 3pm day 2. So my idea is to cover living root, mawsmai caves and Nohkalikai falls! Is it possible ?
