Given the crown of the wettest place on earthy, the village of Mawsynram is a paradise for nature lovers. Of course, you can enjoy the furious rains as well. It grabbed the title from Cherrapunji quite recently.The immense rainfall has helped in creating a culture that is inherently unique and dependent on the rains. The rainfalls are quite intense here and can evoke a range of emotions. Thick grass is used by the villagers to soundproof their huts against the beating of the rains.
The rains have also helped in the creation of enchanting waterfalls that dot the hilly landscape. Shades of blue and green are common here. Thick forests of multiple shades of green cover the land adding another layer of enchantment. There are bridges here made by the living roots of the trees. The bridges look amazing while the turbulent waters of the mountain streams rush below.
