Meghalaya, known for its clouds and rainfall is a tiny state in the North East India sandwiched between Assam and Bangladesh. It stands up to its name of “Abode of Clouds” during the monsoon period. Meghalaya has so much to offer to an avid traveler – undulating mountains, spectacular crystal-clear lakes, meandering rivers, dense verdant forests, gorgeous waterfalls, quaint caves, exotic flora and fauna – all of these makes Meghalaya look like straight out of a fairy tale.
Meghalaya is dotted with copious waterfalls, some gushing from great heights and some gurgling gently over moss green rocks. Sit by the plunge nature pool of the gigantic waterfall and breathe in the ethereal ambiance of the environment.
We guarantee you’ll have a great time in the Wonderland of Waterfalls. You’ll never get bored in spite of the numerous waterfalls as no two waterfalls are alike. Every waterfall is different and worth going to!
We take you to some of the untouched, less-explored and seriously scenic waterfalls that will take your breath away.
So, come and get wet! If getting wet in rains is not enough… get soaked in the waterfalls.
Day 00 | Arrive in Guwahati (-/-/-)
On arrival at Guwahati, check-in to your hotel near the airport. The rest of the day is free to relax. (Not part of the package)
Day 01 | Guwahati – Cherrapunji (-/-/D)
Today, we leave Guwahati by 10:00AM & head to Cherrapunji. We stop at Umiam Lake Viewpoint & Mawkdok Dympep Valley Viewpoint for a while, if time permits. En-route, we complete our lunch. On arrival, we check-in to our home-stay / guesthouse and relax. Get to know the group in the evening.
Day 02 | Cherrapunji (B/-/D)
Cherrapunji locally known as Sohra is blessed with many exotic waterfalls that come alive during the monsoons. Today, we head out to explore some of the lesser-known waterfalls of this region. Though majority of them are approachable by our transport some require a bit of hiking. We also visit Noh-Ka-Likai falls – the World’s fourth tallest waterfalls, Noh-Sngithiang Waterfalls, also known as Seven Sisters waterfalls, Dain-Thlen Waterfalls, and few other popular waterfalls.
Day 03 | Cherrapunji – Pynursla (B/-/D)
This morning, we visit 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 large passage making it easy to walk through. We then head to Pynursla, a small town where we spend the rest of the day in leisure.
Day 04 | Pynursla (B/-/D)
Today is the day to explore the interior territories of Pynursla. We head to some of the interior villages, unexplored waterfalls and remote root bridges in this area. We also visit Mawlynnong, supposedly “the Cleanest Village in Asia”. Walk through the pathways of the village, admiring the beauty of the village and its maintenance. We would be ascending the Sky Walk to have a glimpse of the plains of Bangladesh.
Day 05 | Jaintia Hills – Dawki (B/-/D)
After early breakfast, we drive to the tiny village in Jaintia Hills which is home to War Jaintia Tribe close to the Bangladesh Border. We spend time exploring the village which is surrounded by dense forests. We take a boat ride here at Umngot River which is much clearer than what we see in Dawki. We visit several lesser-known waterfalls in this route. Also make a quick visit to the Indo-Bangla Border, if time permits.
Day 06 | Mawphlang – Shillong (B/-/D)
Today, we drive to the Mawphlang Sacred Forest. We take a walk through the dense Sacred Forest which is believed to be over 1000 years old. An ideal destination for nature enthusiasts, the forest has many medicinal plants and trees, orchids, ferns and butterflies.
We head to Mawsynram from here, which is the Wettest Place on Earth. We read in text books that Cherrapunji is the wettest place on Earth but Mawsynram has beaten Cherrapunji by a slender margin. Mawsynram is a place where nature-loving people frequently visit wherein they take pleasure in the steep, sliding slopes, the fresh air, the rolling green mountains and the deafening but picturesque waterfalls.
Day 07 | Shillong – Guwahati (B/-/-)
Depart early to Guwahati. En-route, we visit the Don Bosco Centre for Indigenous Cultures. We bid good bye to each other & head home with sweet memories!!! Trip ends.
