Trip description

Meghalaya, known for its clouds and rainfall is a tiny state in the 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 makes Meghalaya look like straight out of a fairy tale.
We would be taking you to some of the least explored and fascinating territories of Meghalaya.

HIGHLIGHTS:
- Visit Umiam Lake for boating
- Hike to the Double Decker Living Root Bridge. A climb down of about 3000 steps, approx. 3 km walk, descend of about 2500 feet into the valley takes to reach the village. A sight to behold, the Living Root Bridges are tangles of the roots of the Ficus Elastica tree which are knit to form a bridge between the streams/rivers. In the earlier days, when the rivers/streams were flooded during monsoon, the tribal's of Meghalaya created this bio-engineering marvel to commute between the villages. It takes about 15-20 years for the living root bridge to get thick and can support even 50 people at a time. It keeps gaining strength as it keeps growing thicker and thicker.
- Caving at 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.
- Explore the villages on foot. Also hike to some of the remote root bridges arounf Pynursla.
- Visit Mawlynnong, Asia’s Cleanest Village. 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. We can also walk sown to the pool in the evening and have a swim.
- Visit a tiny village in Jaintia Hills which is home to War Jaintia Tribe close to the Bangladesh Border. Take a boat ride in the crystal clear waters of Umngot River. Options of zip-lining, kayaking, cliff jumping are also available (at extra cost).
- Trek in Mawphlang Sacred Forest. 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.
