Northeast holidays bring an image of vast, untouched greenery, drizzles and winter chills, cloudy hills and the warmest people. What if I said that you could also go caving in one of the most exciting locations, experience the trek of a lifetime and zip line across gorges! Meghalaya is all this and more.
As a couple, we are enthralled by mountains. Everything about mountains gets us going. The peace, the tranquillity, the enormity of it, opportunities to trek and at other times to laze around, enjoying magnificent views of the sun rising & setting. This time around we set off to explore the hill ranges of Khasi, Jaintia and Garo. Entering Meghalaya from the Guwahati-Shillong highway, our first stop was an exclusive sunset on the banks of the Umiam Lake. Populated with a handful of youngsters strumming away on their guitars and a few locals scattered along the banks, we found our perfect spot and slowly soaked in the first feels of this beautiful state. - A couple who travelled to Assam and Meghalaya Wrote
