About Meghalaya

Known as the “Scotland of the East” and the “Abode of Clouds”, Meghalaya is one of the most geographically diverse and unique places on our entire planet. Being the wettest place on earth, Meghalaya is blessed with lush green landscapes, dotted with waterfalls turning into crystal clear streams and rivers that offer excellent opportunities for water adventure sports. True to its name, the Meghalaya sky seldom remains free of clouds, but during winters offer jaw dropping starry views. The tribal state enjoys a matrilineal society and comes alive with colorful traditional rituals, folk n rock music, dance and merriment the year round.

Caravan Trips

We welcome all the caravanmates in our caravan (stationed in Shillong) the evening before the actual trip starts next day. You can settle down, get familiar to the caravan and break the ice with our team and other caravanmates over the introduction dinner.

The caravan rolls out of Shillong the next morning and over the next 6 days we take you to several offbeat places of Meghalaya and also show you some famous destinations not worth missing! We’ve grouped our days according to various major regions of Meghalaya. The order of these regions is flexible, some regions are best to visit in particular seasons.

We also go on exploratory trips ourselves, adding new places and adventure activities in Meghalaya to our possible future itineraries.

The itinerary for the upcoming trips will be tentatively a subset of these
