Cherrapunjee Inn

The rolling hills and meadows intersperse with pine forests give way to towering peaks with jagged edges.

A small state packed with big surprises, that is quintessentially Meghalaya for you. Innumerable waterfalls, streams, virgin forests with an interesting wildlife, the beautiful hills and valleys veiled in clouds make up a breathtaking canvas enlivened by an equally rich culture of the Khasi people.

Among many places, Cherrapunjee must be in your bucket list if you don’t want to miss the enigma attached to the most beautiful second wettest place on earth. Generally it rains after dark (Oct to April) so you can keep wandering the day and enjoy the pitter-patter of the rains at night. After some time, your ears get used to the rhythm and that’s even more pleasurable. Of course you should keep umbrellas or rain-coats with you and not to forget, rain cover for your backpack.

The Home

A number of staying options are available, but one of the best is ‘Cherrapunjee Inn’. This homestay is at the heart of the town, just 10 minutes walk from the market. Yes, the surroundings are not picturesque landscapes but what makes up for that is exceedingly warm hospitality of the elderly host who sets the perfect example of a homestay.

The ‘Cherrapunjee Inn’ consists of 2 triple bedrooms upstairs and 1 double bedroom, dining hall and guest lounge downstairs. The rooms and attached toilets are well maintained, spick and span and has ironing facility, which comes handy, geyser, wi-fi, free parking, etc.
The rooms upstairs are quite spacious, have a balcony with a wonderful view. In case of emergency, you can get doctor on call.


Food is too good to be missed. All the guests who’ve stayed here swear by it. And as mentioned earlier, the ingenuity in their hospitality might have added to the taste. Have a warm chat with the hosts, you’ll understand better. Very friendly and helpful regarding planning treks, arranging car and other essentials. That is really a plus point provided the many options available for day treks or outings.
