Meghalaya Now Holds A Record Of The World’s Longest Sandstone Cave. The cave named Krem Puri has been the latest discovery in the lands of Meghalaya.
What’s In It?
It was first discovered in 2016. But its actual length was found during an expedition by the Meghalaya Adventurers’ Association (MAA) to measure and map it. More than 6,000 metres than the world-record, it even boasts 70 million-year-old fossils of dinosaurs. Especially the Mosasaurus, a giant reptile that lived 66-76 million years ago.
What it is ?
Krem Puri is located near the village of Laitsohum in Mawsynram. It holds a record of world’s longest sandstone cave at a length of 24,583 metres.
This sandstone cave has also become India’s second longest cave in the general category after the limestone Krem Liat Prah-Umim-Labit system measuring a little over 31km in Jaintia Hills in Meghalaya,” said Brian Daly Kharpran, a founding member of MAA
The expedition team consisted of 30 professionals from Austria, Ireland, Romania and the United Kingdom, and other European nations along with members of MMA.
So this is another hidden gem of India for tourists and adventurers.
