INFORMATION ABOUT CHERRAPUNJEE
High above the hazy valleys and foaming rivers, hidden in the rolling clouds and perched on an headland, lies Cherrapunjee, 4,500 ft above the sea level. Cherrapunjee in the north eastern state of Meghalaya is a spectacular location with the year-round rain. Long ago, Cherrapunjee in Meghalaya had earned the coveted place in the Guinness Book of World for being the wettest place on the earth. This is one place all over the world, where the rainfall can be recorded in feet rather than in millimeter.
Cherrapunjee the pristine land with ever-lasting beauty, is perhaps the only place in India, which has just one season - the monsoon. The rainfall varies from heavy to medium to light, but there is no month without rain. Another surprising fact about Cherrapunjee Meghalaya is that, it rains mostly at night. Day-to-day activity does not really get disrupted by the rain.
But, in the recent past the increases in pollution and deforestation resulting in environmental changes has affected the rainfall here, leading to the shortage of water in the region.
