The state of Assam starts to receive heavy rainfalls in the July month which keep the state drenched till the end of September. Due to numerous reasons, it is not at all a favorable time to visit Assam unless you are ready to brave up and get caught into incessant rainfalls defacing the hilly roads of this region. 

Though the landscapes appear heavenly with the presence of clouds and mist all over the place, most tourists prefer not to make plans to visit Assam during the monsoon season to avoid inconvenience.

Since all the wildlife parks remain closed during monsoons, you will not get to enjoy any wildlife experiences here. And you can also not enjoy activities like river rafting and trekking during the rainy season. 

However, if you anyway visit Assam during these months, you can enjoy a lazy vacation in the romantic weather here. Another thing you can enjoy here are the sights of water streams squealing through lush green forests and plummeting down high gorges.

The average day temperature in Assam during monsoon can be expected to hover around 32 Degree Celsius. The average night temperature here during monsoon stays around 25 Degree Celsius.

18 April 2017
Highly recommended. We were a large family of 10 members, including children & aged parents & who booked package for Meghalaya & Shillong experiences. The host & their team where real caring, be it food, guidance, knowledge of local must things to do & we felt very homely. The homestay was excellent for cleanliness, hospitability, being tucked away from the chaos of the city, yet easily accessible to all amenities. Everyone of family were highly indebted to this wonderful hospitality & experience.
It was one of the most beautiful place to spend your vacation in. The beauty North Eastern states are eternal and truly surreal. We visited various nature oriented places. The team was very cooperative and reliable
The trip includes Karziranga Park is very much worth a visit. You can see many animals close up. Elephants, Rhino, Wild Buffalo, if you are lucky a Tiger. It is also a paradise for birds, too many to name. In short amazing tour

To revel in the beauty of the north east, there is nothing like an Assam, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh package that will ensure you make the most of a serene chance to view the stunning locations. We booked our trip with Thrillophilia and headed off to see many fantastic places like the Bomdila, Tawang Monastery, Sela Pass, Dirang Orchid Center and so many more. We gorged on the most delicious breakfasts and spent our nights in the most hygienic hotels. I must admit that had I not booked my tours with Thrillophilia I probably would have never enjoyed such a beautiful trip that intelligently includes visit to all the major locations in just 9 days.
15 January 2021
Generally, I and our group of 4 friends make our own travel plans. But, this time, we decided to go ahead with Thrillophilia as we had a 9-day tour to the northeast. Also, we had to ensure safety with the corona restrictions in place. If I had to summarize the trip in one sentence then I would say that I relished the beauty of every major location with unparalleled service experience from the Thrillophilia team. Right from our arrival at Guwahati to our stays at Bhalukpong, Shillong, and Dirang, everything was beyond perfect.

Since we were a group of 9 friends planning for a long tour, we wanted everything to be in place so that we could utilize all of our time in having fun rather than worrying about things. I must say, choosing Thrillophilia for our 8 days long Meghalaya trip proved to be of great help. Their package not only helped us with the perfect itinerary, but also made sure our sightseeing transfers were on point. There were no delays made by the driver, he was really knowledgeable about the routes and also guided us as a local. He told us a lot of things about the culture of Meghalaya and the lifestyle of the people living there. Our package also included trekking and we could not have asked for more fun and thrill. All thanks to Thrillophilia for their excellent Meghalaya tour package.
20 November 2020
When it's a long awaited trip, you need to be very sure about everything as you don’t want any kind of trouble in your vacations. Thrillophilia came as a boon for us for our long trip to Meghalaya and we are happy that we chose their 8 days adventure Meghalaya package. This package not only offered the right amount of thrill with trekking opportunities, but also helped us with our local transfers and lodging. Thanks to Thrillophilia, another destination on our bucket-list is ticked!
