Located 54 km from Shillong, Cherrapunji has often been credited as being the wettest place on Earth, but now nearby Mawsynram has taken away that distinction. It still holds the all-time record for the most rainfall in a calendar month and in a year. It has an average elevation of 1,430 meters (4,690 ft) and sits on a plateau in the southern part of the Khasi Hills, facing the plains of Bangladesh.

The valleys around Cherrapunji, are covered with lush and very diverse vegetation, containing numerous endemic species of plants, including Meghalaya subtropical forests.

Apart from the famous living root bridge, other natural attractions include cave formations such as the Mawsmai Caves and Krem Phyllut. The misty valleys and the gushing waterfalls in the region make a long drive through Cherrapunji ideal for a day trip from Shillong.
