Best Time to Visit: October to May is the best time to visit Cherrapunjee as the monsoon will have passed and the weather would be nippy but pleasant. Mind you, the weather can still play truant and it could rain in intervals, but that shouldn’t deter you from taking a trip here as the place is absolutely stunning.
Clothing: You should definitely carry rain gear - umbrellas, windcheaters, rainy shoes, etc. If you’re visiting here during the winter months, do carry some heavy woollens as it can get quite cold here.
Moving around: You can move within the town by taxis and Sumo vans at a minimal charge. However, we still hold that the best way to explore a new place is by walking around and taking in the local sights!
