Meghalaya and the Northeastern States
Rajasthan or Kerala have no more secrets for you? Goa too touristy? It’s time to discover the north-east of India!
Northeast India is composed of seven “sister” states: Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, and Tripura and is surrounded by Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burma and China. Still little tourist, the region is full of treasures! A special permit is required for the region of Arunachal Pradesh.
Meghalaya, which means “adobe of clouds”, is one of the rainiest regions in the world. The area of Cherrapunji is known to be the wettest!
Trekking lovers, Meghalaya is for you. The landscapes are magnificent and the steps that connect the villages … difficult!
Phone does not work well and internet difficult to find! Perfect for disconnecting!
Where to stay?
Tourism begins in the region. So you will not find many hotels, but homestays.
If you do not want to take the risk of sleeping outside, we recommend:
www.chalohoppo.com, an agency specializing in the North-East created by a group of friends who test everything before.
Embor Klamet, firstname.lastname@example.org / 8575692334, a young local guide who knows everyone! It can also recommend itineraries. By mail or whatsapp, he is always available.
