Which cave will we be visiting, and what can we expect to see?

Visiting Krem Mawpun, a cave in the East Khasi Hills of Meghalaya, is a unique and incredible experience. As you explore the caves, you will be surrounded by majestic and beautiful stalactites and stalagmites, created by the process of water seeping through limestone and carrying dissolved minerals with it. As the minerals build up, they form cone-shaped structures that hang from the ceiling and reach up from the ground. Taking in the natural beauty of these formations can be an awe-inspiring experience.

What are stalactite and stalagmite formations?

Stalactites and stalagmites are formations that are created by the process of water seeping through limestone and carrying dissolved minerals with it. Over time, these minerals build up and form the unique structures that are found in caves all around the world.

Stalactites form when water seeps down from the ceiling of a cave. The water carries with it minerals, which are deposited as the water evaporates. As the minerals build up, they form a cone-shaped structure that hangs from the ceiling.

Stalagmites form when the minerals in the water are deposited on the ground of the cave. The minerals slowly build up, forming a cone-shaped structure that reaches up from the ground.

The process of stalactite and stalagmite formation is an interesting example of how nature can create majestic and beautiful structures.
