Itinerary

Our pleasant & experienced tour manager, who will be with you throughout the tour, will meet and greet you at Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Airport Kolkata 2 hours prior to the departure time. After completing the Airport formalities, Board the flight for Guwahati.

GUWAHATI, India’s gateway to the North East, is also the largest metropolis in the region, making it the most popular starting point for other attractions in the region. We will depart from Guwahati airport for Cherrapunji, Meghalaya, popularly known as ‘Sohra,’ which is famous for its double-decker living root bridge.  

Cherrapunji is located on an escarpment high above misty valleys and foaming rivers, shrouded in swirling clouds. Cherrapunji is no longer in the top ‘wet’ category due to climate changes, yet it preserves its pure beauty, peculiar features, permanent clouds, and perpetual mists…. Cherrapunji, appropriately, is located in the heart of the State of Meghalaya-the abode of clouds..

After dinner have a comfortable stay overnight at Cherrapunji.

After breakfast, proceed to Mawlynnong Village – Mawlynnong has established a reputation for being one of Asia’s cleanest villages, although the moniker “God’s Own Garden” is more accurate. On the border of Meghalaya’s southern mountains, the Khasis’ fruit orchards, gushing streams, evergreen surroundings, swinging palms, and well-preserved traditions give a picture-perfect setting.
 
The Nohwet Living Root Bridge, arguably Meghalaya’s most iconic landmark, is located here. The Ficus Elastica tree roots were woven around a structure to form the bridge, which took years to complete. The bridge is used to traverse the peaceful and serene waters of the river that flows beneath it, and when viewed from a far, the entire construction creates a captivating display.
 
Also, pay a visit to the Tree House and Sky View Point, where you may get a panoramic view of the Bangladesh lowlands. The Skywalk is an 85-foot bamboo-pole-and-jute-and-bamboo-rope-and-jute-and-bamboo-rope-and-jute-and-bamboo-rope-and-jute-and-bamboo-rope-and-jute-and-bamboo-rope Balancing rock – an ancient structure consisting of a giant boulder dangerously balanced over a much smaller rock – was built without the use of metal.

We’ll then travel to Dawki, a small village in the Jaintia Hills known for the river Umngot, which is a must-see for everyone visiting Meghalaya. Sandwiched between India and Bangladesh, it is also known for its tourism, with many visitors flocking to the city to take a boat trip on the city’s famous Umngot River and take in the sights and sounds.
