Description

Bucket List Treks in North East is one of our favourite 7 day itinerary and is perfect for someone who is visiting Northeast India for the first time. We explore some of the most “Wishlist-ed” Treks and nature trails over a span of 7 days.

We start with Dzukou Valley Trek in Nagaland which is arguably one of the finest treks in the region. Post that we do the Popular Double Decker Living Root Bridge Trek in Meghalaya and get mesmerised by the ultimate architecture of Men and Nature. We also Trek to the top of the tallest waterfall plunge in India, Nokahlikai Falls and Trek to the most beautiful waterfall you’ve ever seen, Rainbow Falls in Meghalaya.

Apart from these easy to moderate level treks, this trip consists of a fine blend of experiences like Village tours, Culinary experiences for Non-Vegetarians, Camping and alternative accommodations, Street Strolls and exploring the Music scene in Shillong.

This trip doesn’t need an incredible amount of fitness level. Amateur trekkers are more than welcome. Suitable for Solo Travellers, Couples and Groups.

 

The experiences in this Trip are craft-fully curated and we promise you a Perfect and Memorable Introduction to Northeast India.
