The Sohra (Cherrapunji) Valley consists of gorges, cut through by fast moving waters, which is a result of perennial heavy rainfall received in this region. It has the old moniker of being the wettest place on Earth, though that is now attributed to the near by regions of Mawsynram. The land has been shaped by the rains here as it erodes away the topsoil. This erosion is further amplified due to encroachment in forest lands.
