Fact Check: Yemen Video Shared as Indian Village Where It Never Rains


A video is being shared on social media, claiming that it shows a village where it never rains, because it is situated above the clouds. The post also claims that this village, known as Pasighat, is located in Arunachal Pradesh, India.

The text reads: “अनोखा गांव : ये है दुनिया का इकलौता ऐसा गांव जहां कभी बारिश नहीं होती क्योंकि यह गांव आसमान में बारिश वाले बादलों के ऊपर है। इस गांव को अरुणाचल प्रदेश में पासीघाट के नाम से जाना जाता है।” (English translation: Unique Village: This is the only village in the world where it never rains, because it is above the rain clouds in the sky. This village is known as Pasighat in Arunachal Pradesh.)

Here’s the link to the above post.


NewsMobile fact-checked the post, and found it to be false.

A similar video on YouTube had been uploaded on February 10, 2021, with a title: ‘Al Hutaib Yemen’ only village in the world where it never rains.

Multiple media reports have also mentioned that it never rains in Al-Hutaib village in Yemen. You can see the reports by Amar Ujala and Orissa Post.

However, we independently couldn’t confirm the claim that Yemen’s Al-Hutaib has never received rain.

Moreover, there are multiple reports and accounts of rain in Pasighat, Arunachal Pradesh.

We also found reports of heavy rain and flood alerts in Pasighat in 2022 and 2021.

Thus, based on the above fact check, it is clear that the viral post is false.
