welcome to Meghalaya

Called the "Abode of Clouds", Meghalaya is a cool, serene mountain state that separates the Assam valley and the Bangladeshi plains. This hilly northeastern region is home to Cherrapunjee and Mawsynram- the wettest places on this planet (Cherrapunjee receives the highest rainfall). Don’t be surprised to see two set of landscapes; one that consists of the lush green, rain-fed forests and the other with barren land due to erosion. 

You will be amazed to witness waterfalls around every nook and corner in Meghalaya; they are a great place for camping and fishing. Delve in the mysterious by visiting the unexplored caves of Meghalaya. For those caught with wanderlust who wish to seek calmness with beautiful landscapes, this abode of clouds is waiting for you.
