Northeast Indian adventure, part four: Cherapunjee, the wettest place on earth.

July 9, 2016

MORE RAIN PLEASE.  It’s not wet enough here.  We just love the rain.  Said no British person ever.  Although when the chance of visiting the actual wettest place ON EARTH arises, it’s a different story.

We left our lovely little hut at Langkawet retreat after breakfast and the owner, Victor accompanied us on a journey to Shillangjasher, so that we could climb up a natural root ladder!  Shillangjasher village was about 45 minutes from Langkawet. When we arrived, we had to first hike through lush green wilderness. We had to clamber down precariously positioned rocks and put a lot of faith in whatever branches and tree roots we could grab onto.   It wasn’t that far but it was hot, sweaty, steep and super slippery. This set of steps took about 45 minutes for Amy to descend. Not really.
