This trek has a beautiful trek path. This can be done at any season. A couple of years back, my friend went to this trek in the month of March, and he said it was good. However, I read that going in the month of June-October is the best time to go. But I went in September because of holiday constraints and it was awesome. I totally loved it. It is completely worthy.

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 a fantastic experience!!! I took this trip with my sisters and we enjoyed every second of it.Everyone from our driver Mr Modan to our hotel manager Mr John to our coordinator Mr Bikash were extremely helpful and cooperative.Trek to Rainbow falls was the highlight of our trip.I would recommend it one hundred percent, worth five star experience. Only regret is that I wish Ii would hav lasted longer
Our tour started with a sightseeing expedition in Guwahati itself. Visited Umananda and Kamakhya temple, also saw the magnificent Brahmaputra river. Be prepared to bear a crazy rush in the temples, especially when you are visiting in season. Then we headed for Shillong and took a halt at the Umiam lake viewpoint, was a decent man-made lake. We clicked some pictures and started our journey again. Stayed in Shillong for day one. Nice hotel, good facilities. Next morning, we traverse across the town visiting a few parks, museums, markets and churches. The third day was really exciting, the twisty and vegetation laden hilly turns took us to Cherrapunji. Amazing location. Enroute, we also spotted Elephant fall and Shillong peak. Went to Nohkalikai falls on the same day along with Mawsmai caves and Krem falls. The hotel we stayed in had a wonderful view of the valley. Next day we started for the famous Mawlynnong and Dawki villages, was completely mind blown to be in these locations. It was worth every penny I spent on this tour.
Excellent
No words to describe my time in the Northeast. Cherrapunji is love, no matter whenever you visit this place, it always looks green and prospering. The villages Dawki and Mawlynnong were my personal favourite on this trip. Keep extra clothes for the adventure you will be getting in near many waterfalls, and rivers of Shillong and Meghalaya. My mother loved visiting the Kamakhya temple for the first time and being a Bengali, she was so impressed by the temple and the story associated with the making of this temple
It was an awesome experience in Shillong.A magnificent view of the valley from an altitude. Clear blue sky, golden sunshine and greenery all around, what more could one ask for.

My story with Thrillophilla starts with having seen the 1st link of it while searching for tour to Meghalaya on Google. I liked the name so clicked the link. Having a rough overlook I just filled a small detail part. Then having a talk with Amanpreet Kaur di she just took the whole journey ahead... First of all thanks to her for making it a success :) Kudos to her!! She is understandable and frank.. Doesn't get irritated on questioning, helpful and sweet, though sometimes a bit late at some things as she forgets coz she says she was busy but she manages that afterwards :) The driver bhaiya -Jon Jyoti started my journey through airport n till I was safely dropped at railway station. He is professional and a nice person. He tried his best to make us comfortable and enjoy the journey. The arrangements made for me by Thrillophilla n tour operator were nice and apprecible. Though at some places inconveniences happened bt at the same time nothing is perfect, those were manageable so overall it was Ok. Importantly, I was a bit worried about my parents comfort but they enjoyed their journey...If car accomdation a bit more spacious it would have lit a fire to the journey though it was not bad too. For everything I m really really thankful to you... Will look forward sure to have you in my future journeys!! :) :)
