Updated: 09/30/20
Clouds envelop everything in Mawsynram, a remote village in the state of Meghalaya, in northeastern India. With an average annual rainfall exceeding 11,800 millimetres - compared to 650 millimetres per year in Paris or 590 in Berlin - this small town is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the wettest place in the world. Despite this, deforestation and the lack of rain collection systems mean that, in winter, the population ironically faces water shortages.
