Meghalaya Backpacking tour (5N / 6D)

Imagine yourself as being in clouds all time, lush greenery in your feet and white clouds above your head; this is the beauty of Meghalaya.

Meghalaya, known as “Scotland of the East “and meaning as “Abode of Clouds” is the best place to be the name on your flight tickets. Meghalaya is deeply enriched with every element that a traveler looks for. It has numerous temples for those who seek peace. It has lush green forests, valleys, waterfalls for trekking enthusiasts and young peeps. It has long roads for bike riding.

Cleanest village in Asia is the pride of Meghalaya which should be visited by every Indian, rather Asian, to take an example of cleanliness. A different natural beauty exists in Meghalaya which has bridges, one of the most known is Living root bridge which is enough to keep a person there only due to its enchanting beauty.

If Meghalaya has this much beauty, why not lets visit this place and explore each point that this God gifted place has to offer. Those who visit it will surely say that it’s not the Scotland of the East; in fact Scotland is the “Meghalaya of the west”.

Itineraries

Day 1

Date : November 8, 2019

Guwahati Airport / Rly Station – Shillong (100 kms / 3 hrs.)

On arrival at Guwahati Airport / Railway Station & transfer to Shillong (4,900 ft.), called 'Scotland of the East" (100 kms 3 hrs.). Enroute visit Umium Lake, a majestic placid lake with its surrounding sylvan hills. On arrival at Shillong, check in at your hotel. Overnight stay at Shillong.

Day 3

Date : November 10, 2019

Mawlynnong + Dawki (Indo Bangladesh Border)

After early breakfast , Explore Mawlynnong – “Asia’s Cleanest Village”. Mawlynnong offers many interesting sights such as the living root bridge and another strange natural phenomenon of a boulder balancing on another small rock. Overnight stay at Shillong. Dawki: The last town in Mawlynnong, Dawki lies but 2 Kms from Bangladesh. Despite the fact that the area is located in a place that has been for years demanding development, one is amazed by the quality of the roads, and the road to Dawki perhaps epitomizes the idyllic hill drive. The black metaled road, offset by the rich, wet green and dark red-brown patches offered a smooth contrast that technology can scarcely capture. The cool, wet air brushes over your face and refreshes and revitalizes you as it enters your body. Dawki is a small village and its main attraction is the Umngot River that marks the natural separation between the Khasi and the Jaintia Hills. The river can be forded by a suspension bridge that connects India to Bangladesh and facilitates trade between the two nations. The Umngot is the site for a boat race that is held in March-April, but even otherwise, seeing this large emerald-green serpent threading its way through the hills, with fishermen’s boats dotting its surface, right into the plains of Bangladesh, is a sight whose majesty echoes long after you leave it. Then back to Shillong. Check into the hotel & rest. Overnight stay at Shillong.
