EAST KHASI HILLS
Arwah Cave - Sohra
Learn the history of the planet by exploring the fossils of Arwah Cave. Gaze at the thunderous waterfall and feel the sounds of the misty forests……
The entrance to Arwah Cave is straight out of the Arabian Nights, a large sunken chamber that leads to a complex set of caverns. Arwah cave is of Meghalaya’s most famous caves and is pretty accessible to regular visitors. It is famous for its fossils which you can observe in the lit-up interiors, especially towards the end of the cave. You will find crustacean shells and fish bones fossilized in the limestone walls of the cave.
Arwah, apart from being a place for enthusiasts of natural history, will also surprise you with its many turns and corners – a maze where you are walking one minute under a high cave ceiling, and sliding the next minute through a narrow passageway that leads to other sections. The underwater streams have continued to flow through these ancient cave formations for millennia.
The walk to Arwah Cave is a very picturesque one – an enchanting path that has been aesthetically carved out of the thick vegetation. At one point, the pathway passes through the side of the Lawshynna Hill giving you amazing views of the waterfall and the surrounding valley. There is a seating area close to the path where you can relax and get spending views.
