The massive canyons near Cherrapunji in Meghalaya and the fact it receives the heaviest rainfall on the planet ensures that there a lot of cliffs in this part of the world. It gets even better when one can stare at nature’s vast beauty from atop any of these cliffs.
One can find such cliffs while driving down from Shillong to Cherrapunji. And most of the popular ones have a designated view point for the benefit of the tourists. And for those who are adventurous can trek on the nearby ridge to find their own cliff view point.
The best part about these cliffs is that each one of them offer a different view. Some offer view of waterfalls, some offer views of the green valley below, some offer views of the meandering river or hill stream, some offer views of the neighbouring country of Bangladesh, while the others offer simple and crazy depth views.
And it is such cliffs that make one’s trip unique and a wholesome experience. Meghalaya and the East Khasi Hills district in particular is blessed to have such cliffs and this is a key ingredient of Meghalays’s natural beauty.
