“Meghalaya – Monsoon Tales” will begin at ‘The Rock Capital of India’ – Shillong where Team ED will host you on your first day of Meghalaya group trip.
When it comes to exploring the urban side of Meghalaya, Shillong has range of things to offer from exploring local delicacies, catching a gig at a local pub or walking in a forest.
Shillong – Mawlyngbna – Sohra
There couldn’t be a better way to start the Monsoon trip to Meghalaya than to experience its waters. River Canyoning is a super fun sport where you basically walk along the river route. There are places where you’ll have to jump, swim and even slide. It is super fun and you don’t need to be a swimmer for this. Let’s not talk much about it and leave it for you to experience it. Unleash the child in you. That’s what we’re gonna be doing today.
Sohra a.k.a Cherrapunjee
Today team ED takes you to some of the most spectacular handpicked spots in Cherrapunjee. We will hike up to some known and some hidden waterfalls, we will do basic caving, we will picnic in beautiful spots. In the evening, on availability, we will try and invite one of our local musician friend to come and jam with us in old rock classics hopefully around bonfire if it ain’t raining.
Sohra – Pongtung
One natural architectural marvel that is unique to Meghalaya is the Living root bridge. The locals build bridges from the roots of rubber tree above gushing streams in so many jungle routes across Meghalaya for the ease of trade and commute back in time.
Today we will hike deep inside the jungle in one such trail that has 5 root bridges. One of them being the longest of its kind in the entire world.
Pongtung – Dawki – Jowai – Shillong
When you are in the abode of clouds, that too during monsoons, you know there are going to be 100s of waterfalls in the area. Probably the reason you are here. Today is about exploring some of the secret ones in the area. So keep your swimming gear handy, carry lots of fruits, wear your hats and begin the walk.
Shillong – Guwahati Airport
Today marks the end of our Monsoon Tales from Meghalaya journey. As we bid goodbye to all our new friends, we promise to be back with more Tales from different parts of the world.
