The rainiest countries in the world


The rainiest countries in the world tend to have a tropical monsoon climate – when a sustained drought sets in after a rainy season. If you are planning a trip to tropical countries, it is worth getting acquainted with the period that is good for traveling.

Mousinram, India

Oddly enough, India can be called the rainiest country in the world. In Mawsynram, a small highland village in the state of Meghalaya, about 11,871 mm of precipitation falls per year, this is an almost completely flooded five-storey house. The world record was set in 1860-1861, when the precipitation mark for a month exceeded 9,000 mm, and for a year more than 26,000 mm. Mousinram is a very beautiful city shrouded in fog, where locals wear Asian hats to escape the rain.

Cherapunji, India

Shillong Cloud Cherapunj

The town of Cherapunji is located in the state of Meghalaya, which is located at 1,313 m above sea level, where precipitation is slightly less than in Mausinram. On average, 11,778 mm of precipitation falls per year. About 12,000 people live in the town, most of them Khasi (people living in the state of Meghalaya). Limestone and coal mining is underway in Cherapunji, and there is a cement factory in the city. Many tourists are attracted not so much by rainy weather, but by living bridges woven from the roots of rubber-bearing ficus: there are such bridges in many cities of the state of Meghalaya.

Tutunendo, Colombia

Tutunendo is a settlement in western Colombia in the Choco highlands region. On average, 11,390 mm of precipitation falls per year. About 4,000 people live in the village. Tourists are not afraid of rainy weather, but on the contrary attracts, since it rains mostly at night, and during the day you can enjoy green mountains, transparent rivers and waterfalls. Tutunendo is one of the wettest cities in the world.
