    A wholesome, hidden gem
    A lesser known gem in Cherrapunji. It comprises of 11 points that can be covered in upto 1.5 hours. They consist of gorgeous waterfalls and few caves in an intricately natural setting. One gets to experience the unique natural setup that Meghalaya provides, with easy to moderate trek.

    Garden Of Caves: A Microcosm of Meghalaya
    Garden of Caves is located in Cherrapunji in a place called Sohra. The goverment should be credited for developing this spot into a gorgeous exhibition all the natural marvels that Meghalaya has on offer. There are a total of seven or eight spots each bearing a traditional name. The spots range from waterfalls to jet streams to hangng rocks. A heart shaped relief and foetus shaped etch add to the myth effect. The Garden is hidden in a remote corner of Cherrapunji and is generally overlooked by many tourists which consider it as just another water body. However, the Garden is aesthetically assembled with ample diversity. It is a photographers delight allowing one to get up, close and personal with nature's bounty. At 100 rupees per head it is a strongly recommended must visit place.

    Well maintained & worth a visit
    We liked the Garden of Caves. The entrance is ₹100 per head, and has 11 spots to visit on a guided stone path. Staff are placed at strategic points to guide the visitors. The path leads into caves and to small waterfalls, down some steps, around a bend, under a rock overhang and to another cave. Only viewpoint #7 has a steep walk down a number of steps (around 60 steps) to see a waterfall into a calm, shady lagoon. You can avoid this viewpoint if you have trouble with steps. The rest of the points are easily accessible and not too strenuous. Viewpoint #9 is a long bamboo bridge over the valley leading to Viewpoint #10 - a cave with water spouting from a rock which you can drink (quite refreshing). Overall a nice place to visit.

    All In One.
    This place is like a Package. It has 11 attraction in all and you need to explore it by walk. There is waterfall, Bamboo walk, Herbal water etc etc. 100 rs per person is the entry fees and Camera Charges are separate. There are guide available at all the Points and they will help you with the direction. Overall a very good visit Just note that this place is little one Sided from other Famed spots and took a little long to reach here. so plan accordingly.

    Underrated, but highly recommend
    Underrated, but a wonderful experience visiting this place. It comes on the way from Shillong to Chherapunji and would recommend including in the itinerary. The caves are unique with nature at its best and there are about 11-12 points which one can cover in the garden. It’s a place unlike anything else I have been to before and was much better than we expected.

The Garden of Caves in Cherrapunjee, Meghalaya is a must-visit natural wonder. Spread across 2.5 hectares, it offers captivating caves, dazzling waterfalls, and lush forests. Highlights include stunning emarald blue/ orange limestone caves, picturesque cascades, and abundant wildlife in the surrounding forests.

The place has 11 spots in close vicinity of each other and you go through a path to touch them all. There are guides everywhere to guide you and they don't charge a penny. Should be more beautiful just after rains.

This and one other place in Cherapunji are worth viewing. Apart from them, I did not find Meghalaya at all interesting. Garden of caves is a well maintained chain of natural caves and bamboo bridges which gives a feeling of typical north eastern atmosphere. Worth seeing.
