Shillong, the capital of Meghalaya The Abode of Clouds, is also known as “Scotland of the East“. Being situated from Guwahati at just 3 hours drive away, is a hotspot for tourists along with Cherrapunjee. Though personally I feel, one can see real Meghalaya, if you step out of common touristy circuit of Shillong and Cherrapunjee. However Shillong being the heart of Meghalaya, is very crowded and a bit expensive. Still one can’t resist the vibe of Shillong specially because of it’s Market and Cafe’s. 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.

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
Huh! Not sure where to start with. I have been planning this trip to Meghalaya for quite a long time, but couldn’t make it possible due to various reasons. Sometimes due to shortage of budget, sometimes due to shortage in number of days I could manage. But whatever it be, I didn’t wanted to be done with Meghalaya just with it’s common circuit of Shillong – Cherrapunji. When I started planning for Meghalaya, I found that 80% of the tourists restricts themselves to Shillong – Cherrapunji and missing out on the hidden beauty, the state has to offer. Hardly...Read More
After returning home from a tough day at work, I turned on WhatsApp and a message popped up in one of our group “Ei Baranti bole jaygata dekh. Khub sundor” (Hey check out a destination named Baranti, it’s fab!) from Sushmita. It was around a year ago and that was the first time I heard the name of Baranti. A quick google search revealed few blogs which made me fell in love immediately with Baranti. From then onwards, I had this urge of mine to explore this destination somewhere in the back of my mind. From then onwards, I...Read More
