The Wettest Place on Earth

Mawsynram

How much rain is too much? Well, Mawsynram in Meghalaya seems to be the answer! A small town in Meghalaya, India, Mawysnram records the highest rainfall on the Earth with an average of 11,871 mm. Located only 15 kms from Cherrapunji, villagers in Mawsynram use grass to soundproof their huts from the deafening rain during the peak rainy season. Cherrapunji records a little less rain  ( 11,771 mm) and is the second wettest place on earth

Ironically, despite being the second wettest place on Earth, residents of Cherrapunji face water shortages when there is no rainfall continuously for months!
