That's some experience jyotirupam. Must be an awesome experience to be alone (almost) in pitch dark with nothing but the sounds of river. Thanks for bringing out this log.

Could you share the tour operators name and the approx cost for the adventure.

Thanks

I can only envy you. For someone who could not stay inside the MRI scanner for 30 mins, it is something I can only dream (even that will be a nightmare rather than a dream).

You brought back old memories. Been to Mawsmai couple of times, more than a decade ago! Love Meghalaya in general. Lots to see and do.
Thanks.

Rating it a 5 star for capturing the location for us.
Thanks. I spent around 4 hours inside the cave. It took another 1 and half hours to reach the cave entrance. So the complete activity was around 7 hours for the caving trip.

The cave is a virgin cave without any setup by any authority. There are lots of scope in this regard to popularise the adventure activities in this region.

Your note above - inside the earth with no lighs - feeling of absolute nirvana - sums up everything that we need to live a happy life in this earth. Those were the moments when you are detached from entire life on earth & were connected to your innermost self. The feeling would have been definitely out of the world.

Most of us here may not be aware that there are more than 1500 caves in state of Meghalaya. Wish you all the very best for future expeditions & keep updated us with your travelogues.

Thanks,
Thanks a lot !

Thanks.


I contacted Mr. Gregory Diengdoh of Shillong who by profession is a teacher and runs a Adventure Tour Agency. I got his contact details by googling and he
arranged the trip. Mr. Manbhalang Wann, who is a cave expert he guided me. I paid Rs. 1700 as Guide Expenses and RS. 400 as rent for the caving gear.

The Longest cave in India is Manipur if I am not mistaken. Can you please remind me of the cave if you have the information. There is a cave near hyderabad as well which is one of the longest caves in India.

Anyways great write up and a nice experience. The pics are simply nice. I liked the shining stones somethig very different from what you would have ever seen. I have been to much smaller caves and nothing of this magnitude. Your pics look straight from NGC. Thanks for sharing them.

Currently I do not have any info about the caves of Manipur, however I love to share with BHPians if I get any.
