I hardly remember how I actually came to know about this place, Joypur Forest. May be from one of the weekend destinations Facebook groups or blogs or whatever. But that doesn’t matter much. Or does it? It was more than a month we have been to Meghalaya and Manipur and we couldn’t restrain ourselves from planning our next trip. Definitely after 2 weeks of long leave for Meghalaya and Manipur, I couldn’t reach out to my manager and ask for more leaves. Anyone would have frowned at such situation otherwise. So it had to be on a weekend or...Read More
I always had this urge of mine to travel through all of the beautiful North Eastern States. After Sikkim and Meghalaya, proceeding towards Manipur is another step forward to that of my wish. Though the Manipur Tourism website didn’t proved to be much fruitful, but then I stumbled upon Here and Thereness which helped me making my dreams come true. I’m glad that I found this blog by Sumita Maam. This women in her fifty’s have travelled alone through various North Eastern states including Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland etc. and her blog is a jewel for anyone planning to visit...Read More

Being situated from Guwahati at just 3 hours drive away, is a hotspot for tourists along with Cherrapunjee.

Cafe’s I felt are the main reason I loved Shillong. Live Music and Lip...Read More
We heard a lot about Dawki, specially the Umngot River and it’s crystal clear view. Thanks to the images at Facebook and Instagram!! After experiencing heaven on earth at Double Decker Living Root Bridge and Rainbow Falls, our plan was to proceed towards the beautiful Jaintia Hills of Meghalaya. But before proceeding for the same, we still had remaining few destinations in Khasi Hills which we planned to cover on the way. The most famous of it being Mawlynnong, which is popularly known as Asia’s Cleanest Village. This post is a continuation from Offbeat Meghalaya – David Scott –...Read More
Khublei! After exploring Mawphlang, Mawlyngbna and Mawphanlur, our plan for the day was to proceed to Cherrapunji after exploring David Scott Trail. As per the original itinerary, Sacred Forest was also planned for today, but as we started early on Day 2 and had a lot of time, we explored Sacred Forest on Day 2 itself. David Scott is an old trekking route and one of the most popular trekking routes in Meghalaya. David Scott Trail has been named after David Scott, a British officer who discovered this route in the first half of 1800s in the form of...Read More
