Why you should head to Meghalaya this summer?

In quest of exploring an almost untouched (atleast I thought so) state of North east, I headed to Meghalaya this March. Meghalaya indeed turned out to be beyond magnificent but not that untouched as I thought it to be. It seemed like it appropriately gets its due attention, neither too much, nor too less. And so it has been able to maintain its unadulterated rawness which I crave for during my travels.

Meghalaya undoubtedly appeared as an abode of clouds where clouds would host you so well that you will feel one with them. Clouds treat your eyes as far as you can see, touch your soul with loving rains and roar out loud to make their presence felt all the time. It is one such state which has definitely blown me over. Don’t believe me? I’ll let the photographs do the talking then.

Time just flies by the side of Umiam Lake
You can’t resist yourself from indulging in such touristy Boating
Adventure on your mind? Tadaaa…….. Ziplining for you
Decelerate your car and appreciate brilliant highways & far fetched grasslands
Skip Dawki and spend a night camping on the banks of Umngot river in Shnongpdeng
Soothe your eyes and soul with crystal clear emerald waters of Umngot river
These roads indeed take you amongst the clouds. I can vouch for it!
Dianthlen waterfall has intriguing history and definitely are not just another falls. See it to believe it!
The rains here certainly make the picture perfect frames
Witness the most beautiful sunrise and indulge in landscape phtography
Sigh! You can also wonder how life would be if your house was tucked in mountains
These charming clouds would not let you loose easily. Beware!
The experience at Double decker living root bridge is worth the steps you take to reach here.       A must do on your itinerary!
No wonder, abode of clouds look like this from above.

  4. […] North East had always been on my mind. So, when I came across extremely cheap tickets for Guwahati, I booked the tickets without any second thoughts. As the date of flying started approaching, I zeroed down to Meghalaya considering the pleasing temperature it has during summers.
