the wettest place on earth - sign (india)


Welcome to Sohra (Cherrapunji), the wettest place on earth!

Cherrapunji is located in the East Khasi Hills, in Meghalaya (India)

It is said to be the rainiest place in the world.­ I was lucky, it did not rain that day!

For some reason, I seem to be attracted by "extreme" places..­.­

For more info about Cherrapunji, read en.­wikipedia.­org/­wiki/­Cherrapunji.

The highlight if this trip was the Maha Kumba Mela Hindu Festival, the largest human gathering on earth, which happens once every 12 years.­

Other regions visited include the springs of the Ganges river, Varanasi, the Konark sun temple.­
