Mawsynram is reportedly “the official” wettest place on Earth. It is a village in the East Khasi Hills district of Meghalaya state. Located only 15 kilometers from Cherrapunji, there’s often dispute between the villages about which should hold the title.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Mawsynram received 26,000 millimeters (1,000 in) of rainfall in 1985.
