#4 of 12 in Nature in Cherrapunjee
Open for public and relatively unexplored, Arwah Cave attracts adventurers looking for the thrill and mystery of crawling and squeezing through small holes and narrow crevices. To get to the entrance, you'll have to walk a scenic wooden bridge carved into the hillside and showered with water. There are no marked paths or signboards in the cave, so taking a guided tour is a must if you want to discover some of its treasures, including 30 million-year-old sea fossils.

  • Approximately 300 metres you can go inside the cave. Live fossils is a remarkable experience. Must visit. Difficult for kids and elderly to walk and crawl inside the cave. Beautiful view of valley from the entrance of the cave
  • Amazing experience walking inside a cave. Water streams flow on the sides and it is lightly dim by bulbs. There are a few fossils as well, can be seen on rocky walls of the cave.
