1. The UMS-1 data file is 233 mm long stalagmite sample (UMS-1) δ18O data. The sample was collected from the Umsynrang cave, Meghalaya, northeastern India from a narrow chamber around half a km inside the cave entrance. 2. The other caves data file is speleothem records from the Mawmluh cave, Meghalaya (Berkelhammer et al., 2012), combined Hulu and Dongee Cave records (Termed as Chinese cave; Cheng et al., 2009, 2016), Palawan cave, western Philippines (Partin et al., 2015), Liang luar cave, Indonesia (Griffiths et al., 2009), Sofular cave, Turkey (Fleitmann et al., 2009) and South Island cave, New Zealand (Williams et al., 2010). 3. The interpolated caves data file is the speleothem δ18O data of Umsynrang cave (this study), Mawmluh cave, Chinese cave record (Dongee and Hulu cave), Palawan cave, Liang luar cave, Sofular cave and South Island cave were linearly interpolated for 10 years interval using Analyseries software (Paillard et al., 1996) for the period from 12.4 to 10.8 kyr BP
