Counted amongst the places with maximum rainfall in the world, Cherrapunji is located near the Wettest Place on Earth, Mawsynram. There are spectacular waterfalls in Cherapunjee credited for the beautiful landscape. Among the most popular waterfalls in Cherapunjee are Nohkalikai Falls and The Dain Thlen Falls. The original name of this town is Sohra, and was pronounced as Chhura by the British Rulers.
