Spread out along the razor sharp ridges of a gigantic mountain wall, Cherrapunjee sits neatly on the edge of the Himalayas towering the pancake low lying plains of Bangladesh. This alluring village was once regarded as the wettest place on the earth given the massive monsoon rainfall that it sees. Road leading from Shillong to this miniscule village passes through the magnificent scenery that become sensational at the Dympep viewpoint. Here you’ll come across a photogenic V shaped valley that deeply slits into the plateau.  

The lush green surroundings of Cherrapunjee very well justifies the Meghalaya’s over-used ‘Scotland of the East’ tag. Nohkalikai Falls here are particularly dramatic especially during the monsoon season when they are brimming with a quantity which is 20 times more than the original. These can be seen from the viewpoint that is located on a plateau that lies at the edge of the 4.4 km mountain ride from the Sohra market. You can hire a local taxi here that will shuttle you to the view point. More significant than this is the series of the ‘Grand Canyon’ gorges that are located around the region that further descends into the green chasms of the tropical forests.

I took a 8 days long trip to Meghalaya with my family a few days back and booking with Thrillophilia helped us a lot. Our check-in, sightseeings, transfers, accommodation, and food was really very spotted with this package. We could visit popular destinations like Umiam Lake, Nohkalikai falls, Mawsmai cave, living root bridges, Seven Sisters’ Falls, and many more. Since the package included permits and tolls we were totally relaxed and just enjoying. Our driver was also very friendly and aware of the local routes. He shared with us many facts about the local culture, traditions, and folklore. He also took us to excellent food outlets for our lunch and dinner. We also got a decent time to stay and enjoy each destination and there was no rush. The hotels we stayed at had very good staff and we also received good breakfast every morning. Overall, it was a very nice family trip and a good first-time experience with Thrillophilia

I had visited Meghalaya this month with my spouse and it was a lovely experience we returned with. We had a stay of 8 days and Thrillophilia made everything quite simple for us. Starting from the pickup from Guwahati airport and our stay to our sightseeing tours and breakfasts, everything was just excellent. We had to do no customization as the package already included excellent places like Cherrapunji,Mawlynnong, and Mawphlang. The plus point is Thrillophilia was always available at our reach for every sort of assistance.
