Keep a flash light handy to go n explore the caves. Don't be afraid of the silence or loneliness or the dark as there ain't any threat of animals or insects or whatever comes up in your mind. If u love adventure do explore the caves in detail, its an great life time experience.

Well, the cave is a good spot to visit only if you go through it. There is nothing to be afraid of as lights are installed throughout the cave. At some places though its quite narrow. I personally had a thrilling experience as it was the last spot I visited and reached there at 6pm. It was getting dark and... More

A great experience. At points, the height is very low and You literally feel you have to crawl out your way. Must visit. During rainy season, there are waters inside and makes the experience a complete different from other seasons. However, in every season, you will find waters dripping on your body.

This is a must visit place in Shillong. Getting inside is a bit difficult and you have to be very careful where you place your steps. Certain parts of the cave are very narrow and it is best not to go deeper. It is an interesting place. wear sneakers. Avoid high heels .

It requires 43km of drive from Shillong. It's not very easy as the path is a long winding roads in the mountain areas. If you can do it, definitely it's worth it I believe. The cave itself is rather small. You can find interesting Linga with some natural creation tastes. I tried to go through to the inside of the... More
