Cherrapunji or Sohra is the place where we have the highest rainfall in the world.

Some tips to be a good birdwatcher

If you want to learn and to know the secrets of nature,you must first respect all its aspects.
These are some important rules to follow in order to meet some of the inhabitants of the park:
  • if you want to meet the animals living in the woods, natural parks, gardens in cities and in the countryside, first you need to avoid  making unnecessary noise  that could disturb the quiet of nature.
  • in a natural environment, but also  in that one in which we live, plants and flowers must be respected, so avoid picking flowers or damage the trees.
  • leaving the waste during a trip is a wrong behavior, because  what you leave in  the places it stays for a long time and pollute the environment. Bring bags with you and fill them with your garbage and then throw them in the containers.
  • do not light fires, a small distraction can cause the destruction of forests and the death of   its inhabitants.
