Meghalaya is one of the most developed states of North East, yet its people are very close to their land. It is inhabited by Khasi, Garo and Jaintia tribes. The state is showered by heavy rainfall almost around the year giving its landscape a lush green coat. The people of Meghalay are happy in general, which is not a surprise since they live close to nature. Be ready to try out some weird food if you are adventurous enough.
Day 1: Today we drive down from Guwhati to the Khasi tribal village in North western hills. Spend a day learning hands on how weaving is done on traditional looms with silk and cotton that is sourced locally. Our journey into the abode of clouds is just beginning. Day 2 - 3: We spend next two days in Shillong. The city has a unique character to it with vibrant energy. There are various pretty cafes and streets whose charm begins only after sunset. Spend the first day with us on a photo tour exploring the local bazaars and places off the general tourist circuit. Second day is at leisure for you to explore the town by yourself. Day 4: We move on from Shillong further into central Meghalaya through stunning landscapes. Spend the day learning hands on how tea plucking and processing is done by the locals. Day 5 - 7: Over the next few days, we visit few sacred forest trails of Khasi tribe of central Meghalaya. We spend one full day exploring the cleanest village in Asia and Dawki River next to Bangladesh border. Although Mawlynnong is well known among tourists, but it is worth spending time there to see how the locals are playing a major role in conserving their village. Spend the last day hiking on the David Scott trail and know the local Folk Tales that we will narrate to you. Day 8 - 9: We spend the next two days exploring how locals traditionally extract and process honey in a quaint village that is still inhabited by indigenous Khasi people who follow ‘Niam Khasi’, the old animist religion of Meghalaya before Christian missionaries arrived in 17th century. Day 10: Begin your onward journey after breakfast. Optional – If you are arriving via Kolkata, spend few days with us indulging in the Bengali culture and colonial heritage of the city.
