Meghalaya, known for its clouds and rainfall is a tiny state in North East India sandwiched between Assam and Bangladesh. Also known as the “Abode of Clouds”, the state has plenty to offer to an avid traveler.
The undulating mountains, living root bridges, spectacular crystal-clear lakes, meandering rivers, dense verdant forests, gorgeous waterfalls, quaint caves, exotic flora, and fauna - all of these make Meghalaya look like straight out of a fairy tale.
We take you to some of the untouched, less-explored, and seriously fascinating territories that will take your breath away.
Day 01 | Guwahati – Shillong (-/-/D)
Arrive at Guwahati's Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi Airport (GAU). SARATHY, THE WANDERER will personally receive you and transfer you to Shillong in Kashi Hills, Meghalaya. En-route, we visit Umiam Lake & Umiam Viewpoint.
Day 02 | Shillong & Around (B/-/D)
There's no better place than a museum to start our 7-day trip to Meghalaya. Visit Don Bosco Centre for Indigenous Cultures, hailed as Asia's largest museum of indigenous & tribal cultures, a seven-storied hexagonal-shaped complex – a place for knowledge-sharing on the cultures of North-East India. Its seven floors represent seven sister states of northeast India. We also take the Skywalk here to get the views of Shillong city.
From here, we head to Mawphlang Sacred Grove, 192 acres of forest perched in the East Khasi Hills. We take a walk through the dense forest which takes anywhere between 2-3 hours.
Day 03 | Dawki – Jaintia Hills (B/-/D)
We drive to a tiny village in Jaintia Hills which is home to the War Jaintia Tribe close to the Bangladesh Border. Take a boat ride here at the crystal clear waters of Umngot River. Take a walk through the dense forests, or plunge into the natural pool by the river.
Day 04 | Jaintia Hills – Mawlynnong – Cherrapunji (B/-/D)
Visit the village of Mawlynnong, supposedly “the Cleanest Village in Asia”. Walk through the pathways of the village, admiring the beauty of the village and its maintenance. The daredevils can do zip-lining at Mawkdok Dympep Valley Viewpoint between the mountains which are not for the weak-hearted.
Day 05 | Trek to Double Decker Living Root Bridge (B/-/D)
A climb down of about 3000 steps into the valley takes us to the famous Umshiang Double Decker Living Root Bridge, the tangles of the roots of the Ficus Elastica tree which are knit to form a bridge between the streams/rivers. Further hike of about 1½ hours leads to the picture-perfect Rainbow Falls. The end of the day is a tough ascend to Tyrna village.
Day 06 | Cherrapunji (B/-/D)
Visit Noh-Ka-Likai falls – the World’s fourth-tallest waterfalls, Noh-Sngithiang Waterfalls, also known as Seven Sisters Waterfalls & Wei Sawdong Waterfalls. We then head to a limestone cave surrounded by the dense forest. The staircase to the caves leads to a mystical world of stalactites and sea fossil formations and possesses a large passage making it easy to walk through.
Day 07 | Cherrapunji – Guwahati (B/-/-)
Head back home with a bagful of sweet memories!!!
