Up in the hills of Khasi lies the small town of Cherrapunji, which is often called 'The Scotland of the East.' With misty and fluffy clouds painting the blue sky, lush green valleys, foaming and splashing white streamlets, and cascading waterfalls, everything in Cherrapunji is like a vivid painting that leaves the tourists awestruck. Cherrapunji is a hill station and part of one of the Seven Sisters States of Northeast - Meghalaya, which means ‘the Abode of Clouds.' \r\n\r\nThe Thangkharang Park in Cherrapunji that overlooks the vast plains of Bangladesh, and myriad waterfalls such as the Nohkalikai Falls, which is the fourth highest waterfall in the world, the Dainthlen Waterfalls, Mawsmai Falls, and the Kynrem Waterfalls are the major attractions in Cherrapunji. Cherrapunji tourism attracts countless adventure junkies to its famous living roots bridges, which are unique in the world and are standing testimony to one of the man-made wonders. Owing to the heavy rainfalls, Cherrapunji is known to be the wettest land on Earth. However, deforestation and global warming have adversely affected its weather, due to which the nearby town of Mawsynram has taken the first place.
