    Thrilling!
    Luckily we went on a sunny day, so the rocks were not wet. It is a very tight squeeze in some places, would not recommend for older/claustrophobic people. Even young people should be extremely careful of slips and finding your footings, and watch your head. That being said, it was still a very novel experience to travel in such narrow pathways inside the cave. Would not recommend on rainy days.

    Different and Unique experience of visiting caves!
    Meghalaya is home to many caves and this one is most easily accessible and very well maintained and lit from inside. The caves are quite mesmerising and you have to crawl and climb at certain places to make your way through the caves. There are some really good picturesque spots as well. Your feet might get wet if you visit them during the monsoons. Entry fee is quite nominal which is 30 bucks.

    Unique and Must Visit
    Mawsmai Cave is unique and a Must visit. Though Meghalaya is Full of such caves and you have Many options to visit. But Mawsmai is Easily accessible , Not much of the Trekking is Involved. weather outside (lighting) will not affect your visit (Arwah was closed due to poor light when we visited). This was our first cave visit and we were mesmerized. Give it a early morning visit to avoid Crowd and spend good time here

There are 2 caves that you can visit. It was exciting but also a bit scary. I was imagining what would happen if there was an electrical outage!

An experience that should not be missed. One of the a must visit place in Cherrapunji. Although the track was wet due to rain but it is worth.

Went here with my family consisting of all adults ranging from 26-60 yrs of age.
As you go deeper into the cave, it gets extremely narrow and you need to double down to go through the walls of this cave. It has rained that day so there was water in the cave and parts of the rocks were slippery. Do not attempt this if it’s raining. Or if you are claustrophobic.

Since we had time, we decided to visit. It wasn't any different from other caves we have seen. Recommend it if you have an hour to kill.

There are 2 caves and both are worth a visit. One has to bend, crawl, squeeze through narrow spaces at times but its adventurous and fun. There are tube lights placed at appropriate intervals and hence navigating wasn't difficult. The caves are clean without insects, cobwebs and visible bats. Cave 1 was relatively short while cave 2 was longer and more adventurous. Overall, a must visit for genuine enthusiasts and nature lovers!

Passing through this cave was a real adventure. In many places the space was so less, that one had to squeeze through.
