Arwah Caves is located 3.5 km from Sohra, which is popularly known as Cherrapunji, Meghalaya’s most popular tourist destination. Arwah caves are tucked away in the jungle and are fascinating places with fossils, stalagmites, and stalactites. It’s a limestone cave and can be easily explored within one to two hours. The pathway to the Arwah caves is carefully maintained and takes you through the mossy jungle frequented by birdsong. It lies in Khliehshnong area known for its limestone formations and the fossils.

Surrounded by the thick forest of Law Shynna in Meghalaya, Arwah Cave is an absolute treat for adventure and archaeology junkies. The cave itself is significantly larger than Mawsmai but only a small part of the cave has been opened for tourists. It is about 300 meters which was discovered until recently and was least explored. It is very dark and creepy inside especially when crawling through the narrow tunnels. There are many chambers and narrow passages in the cave.
