Meghalaya is one of the most beautiful states in India also known as the abode of the clouds! Located in the northeast of our vibrant country, it is rich with cultural heritage and beautiful landscapes. While some people would know Meghalaya only as highest rainfall receiving state, it offers much more for offbeat travelers. It is a place that would fuel the imagination of a creative person and probably give rise to masterpieces in literature, art, and music, such indeed is the pristine beauty of this state. Meghalaya is full of sights and experiences that will leave one awed. We explore several non-touristy and hidden destinations, drive through the thick forests for a swim in the fresh waterfalls, travel by local transport or walk, eat local food and stay with locals at homestays to get a sight of their culture. This is not a luxury trip for tourists, but exhausting and exhilarating expedition for explorers & travelers at heart.
