Sohra has stories hidden all over – in its rivers, cascades, and mist-shrouded hill-tops. It is also the place where civilizations met, the cultural capital of the Khasis and the gateway of the colonial age. The terrain comes alive during the monsoons while the drier months are all about blue skies and scenic hikes and treks. The region around Sohra is synonymous with waterfalls – the plunging Nohkalikai and the thunderous Dainthlen are settings for immortal Khasi folktales while the three-tiered Wei Saw Dong is tucked away in a verdant forest. Sohra provides layers of sights and adventures – the more time you spend here, the more surprises you will encounter.
You have a wide range of stay options in Sohra, from the luxurious Jiva and Polo Orchid resorts to cosy homestays that allow you to soak in the local vibes. Destinations around Sohra include Nongriat and Khat-ar-shnong.
