I totally enjoyed getting inside the cage. One needs to be a little careful as there are lots of steep mountain as you go inside.

We were a little skeptical to see the caves as we haven't heard great reviews from few of our friends but to our surprise we loved it! It takes some physical exercise to cover the entire cave pathway but totally worth it. It is well lit and clean so nothing to worry, just enjoy the nature's creativity! Would suggest avoiding...

Very interesting adventure of cave walking gives us a feel of the age old rocks present there and gives us a learning of flexibility.

Scary caves which have evolved naturally. Must visit. Avoid taking small kids as my daughter got very scared looking at the rock formations.

It is a limestone cave. Inside the cave you will find a creative structure by nature due to decay by water sources.It might thrill you to pass through the cave. A tall person might not get enough space to pass through. The restaurant near this point good place to have lunch/dinner.

6 kms from the Sohra market to the south lies the village of Mawsmai in the direction of Bangladesh border. At the village crossing, one passes grasslands surrounded by forests, ending in a clearing. From this clearing, a concrete pathway through the jungle leads up to the main cave entrance. This cave is the only cave that is fully lighted.... More

I've seen much more amazing caves in the Eastern United States, but if you've never seen a cave before, then you should visit this one. There was a lot of water dripping so the path was slippery. I only went part way in - until it was too low for me to walk.

A must see place. Beautiful location.amazing rocks weathered over the years look so beautiful. Nicely maintained n clean inside.lighted properly. U have to bend down at places n squeeze yourself through small openings to move inside the cave.i think that's at around 4-5 places or else the cave is quite high. Just watch out your head while moving in the... More

Meghalaya is known for its caves in the Jaintia, Khasi and Garo Hills. The state boasts of the longest cave formations among the world. We drove down from Cherrapunjee for 6 km to arrive at the natural wonder – Mawsmai Caves. Only a portion of the huge caves is accessible to tourists to be precise only 150 meters. The entrance...

Initially scared due to the height of the caves and my mild claustrophobia, however it turned out to be a good experience. At many places had to crouch low on all fours to avoid bumping my head and also to retain balance. Need to be careful as once inside there are no officials for safety, but it gets over in... More
