World’s Rainiest Places
- The next time you’re feeling those rainy day blues, consider what it might be like to live in one of the Earth’s soggiest spots. Mawsynram, Meghalaya, India. Residents of this village live in the wettest place on Earth, according to Guinness World Records.
They receive an average annual rainfall of 467 inches, most of it during monsoon season. Cropp River, New Zealand. While rainfall in New Zealand is above average, the Cropp River really raises the bar, getting soaked with 453 inches of the wet stuff each year. Mount Waialeale, Kauai, Hawaii. This mountain, which means “overflowing water” in Hawaiian, receives rain nearly every day and averages 450 inches annually.
