Meghalaya monsoon tour is a unique and enchanting experience, as Meghalaya, a state in northeastern India, receives one of the heaviest monsoon rains in the world. The name “Meghalaya” translates to “the abode of clouds,” and during the monsoon season, the state becomes a lush green paradise with cascading waterfalls, pristine rivers, and mist-covered landscapes. Here are some highlights and tips for a memorable Meghalaya monsoon tour:

  3. Dawki and Umngot River: Dawki is famous for the crystal-clear waters of the Umngot River, where you can take a boat ride and witness the mesmerizing sight of the riverbed through the transparent water.
  4. Nongriat Village and Double Decker Living Root Bridge: Trek down to the picturesque village of Nongriat to see the Double Decker Living Root Bridge, an extraordinary example of bioengineering by the local Khasi tribes.
  5. Shillong: The capital city of Meghalaya offers a blend of modernity and natural beauty. Don’t miss the Ward’s Lake, Shillong Peak, and the Don Bosco Museum.
  6. Enjoy Local Cuisine: Relish the traditional Khasi, Garo, and Jaintia cuisines, which include dishes like Jadoh (rice and meat), Dohkhlieh (pork salad), and Nakham Bitchi (fermented fish chutney).
