Overview

The Meghalaya backpacking trip is a custom-tailored experience including serenity, peace, and adventure all at the same time.

Now, the name Meghalaya has significance. It means the land of clouds in the Sanskrit language. The name is true in all senses as Meghalaya is the wettest place globally and is usually covered with clouds. 

Meghalaya is famous for various things and  Limestone Caves is one of them. These caves can also be considered one of the many specialties of the place. Also, the caves have another name for themselves and are rightly called ‘Caves in the Abode of the Clouds’

Moving on, adventure sport is also one of the reasons people go to Meghalaya. So, activities like trekking, camping, mountaineering, rock climbing, and water sports are all part of the pack here. The peace and serenity of the place mixed with options for unleashing the adventure junkie in you make it one of the perfect destinations to visit in India.

The best time to visit Meghalaya is between October to June when the weather in Meghalaya is nice. During this time, one can enjoy the full experience of visiting Meghalaya.

Avoid the state during heavy rainfall season all you'll end up with is foot-deep muddy waters all over the place and your trip would be ruined in that case.

Coming back to the attractions, Shillong enjoys a pleasant atmosphere, beautiful lakes, lush green mountains, pine forests, exotic orchids, and more. Which combine to make it one of the finest hill stations in the North East.

While covering 4 essential locations in Meghalaya, Shillong, Cherrapunji, Dawki, and Mawlynnong, we get to explore more. It's not just about the places but variations in culture, cuisines, rituals followed by the people, and more.

Additionally, In Meghalaya, every other city has its significance. Such as Shillong being the rock capital, Mawlynnong being the cleanest village in Asia, Cherrapunji being the wettest place on Earth, and Dawki being famous for its crystal clear waters.

Due to the reason that all this and more are covered in our itinerary, you'll be having a fun, and memorable trip experience.
