Cherrapunjee Holiday Resort had opened ORANGE Roots, the  first Pure Vegetarian Restaurant at Cherrapunjee on 4th March 2015 with a seating capacity for 50 persons serving Pure Vegetarian Combo Meals / Plate Meals / Thali besides Indian Breakfast including Dosa, Puri Subji, Chole Batura and Snacks.  ORANGE Roots has a large Car Parking Area and Clean Rest Room facilities just alongside the road. Tourists responded enthusiastically to the tasty and sumptuous food served hot with warmth in hygenic environs at very reasonable prices. 

Seeing the response, for quick availability of seating, we have since 23rd May 2016 enhanced the seating capacity to seat 150 people at a time.

We serve Jain Food too. For group sizes of 50 and above, on prior order and against payment online, we can serve a Full Jain Thali.

We at Orange Roots look forward to serve you fresh and delicious food with warmth. Come and experience the warm hospitality and efficient service provided by our energetic young Khasi ladies from Cherrapunjee who take great pride in promoting Tourism in this scenic place.

Due to popular demand we have extended our working hours and are open for Dinner up to 08:00 pm. The Restaurant is now open on all days of the week from 08:30 am to 08:00 pm and on Sundays from 09:30 am to 08:00 pm.

Arwah and Mawsmai caves are great specimen of Limestone caves. Arwah Cave passages are large and easy to walk through. Mawsmai cave has impressive stalactite, stalagmite and flowstone formations. We recommend that you do not miss to see both of them. In case, time available on hand is a constraint, you can see one of them and keep the other for a future visit.30 min
