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.

Meghalaya Trek is one of the best treks I had known about. Trekking is no longer a distant dream for many as trekking groups are started and are functional all over the country. There are many moderate level challenging treks that are available in across India for trekking enthusiasts. We, some of the Delhi Trekkers, took this trek and it was amazing. The trek was definitely tedious and exhausting, but It was a spellbinding experience.

WOW! The trek I took here was amazing. I totally loved it. It was very interesting. We had a really a nice time and fun. What is more interesting is that you get to stay in the camping rest house. This is fun if it is well planned. If you haven’t planned well, it can be tedious. Also local guides over charge, so go well planned with this trip.

My wife and I took this trek. This was our first trek together. She is not a trekker, but I have done some treks in college times. I was worried if she will like it. To my surprise, not only did she like it, but she actually loved it. It was a nice and fun experience to trek with her.
