Close to Mawsmai Falls, one can visit the dazzling Mawsmai Caves. The dimly-lit cave is adorned with overhanging limestone rocks. Due to the continuous dripping of water from the roof, the cave is accessorised with stunning stalactites. The beautiful cave is a handiwork of several years of erosion. A popular attraction among tourists, this place is a must-visit!
