The World

Cherrapunjee Holiday Resort www.cherrapunjee.com


Cherrapunji is a small town
located on the southern edge of
Khasi Hills about 4823 feet
above mean sea level.
Cherrapunjee is locally and now
officially known as ‘SOHRA’.
Khasi people of Mon-Khmer
origin inhabit it.

It is the headquarters of Sohra


Civil Sub-Division and falls in
East Khasi Hills District of the
Indian State of Meghalaya.

Meghalaya is one of the seven


states of North East India with
Assam to its North and sharing
an international border with
Bangladesh on its South.
The Rainiest Place on Earth

The average annual rainfall at


Cherrapunjee from 1973-2007 is
11,952.2 mm (i.e. 39.21 feet .
The major cause for Cherrapunji
receiving the heavy rainfall be
attributed to the orographic features
of the Khasi Hills here.
Cherrapunji falls directly on the
path of Southwest Monsoon known
as the Indian Summer Monsoon /
Asian Summer Monsoon. The
deep gorges around Cherrapunji
help to funnel and converge the low
flying rain bearing clouds over
Cherrapunji. The upward thrusted
rain clouds rapidly cool as they
reach higher altitudes, condense
and deluge Cherrapunji.
The Living Root Bridges
are exclusive to Meghalaya in the
whole world. The stem of a species of
Indian Rubber tree- Ficus Elastica-
are trained over 20- 25 years to form
these living bridges to cross fast
flowing rivers and streams. Some of
these bio-engineering wonders are 53
feet, 70 feet and 100 feet long.

The Double Decker Root Bridge has


two levels. They are grow in strength by
the day. These bridges are reachable
on foot throughout the year and are
used by villagers everyday.
Cherrapunjee Holiday Resort helps
you with guides to see these Living
Wonders.
