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.

Suma Kocchar Trekking in Shillong
Excellent
Since it was my first trekking tour ever, I was a bit nervous and that’s when one of my friends recommended Thrillophilia. I booked their Shillong trekking package and it made my trip so easy. Trekking on the David Scott memorial trail and finally reaching the Double Decker Living Root Bridge was such a beautiful experience. I also got excellent places to try the authentic local food and they were so tempting. I will recommend Thrillophilia to all solo travelers like me for a totally sorted experience!

Sanya Abbott Trekking in Shillong
Excellent
A visit to Shillong was long due and I finally got it ticked last month with Thrillophilia’s package. My entire group really enjoyed the tour and the trekking experience to the Living Root Bridge was very amazing. We also hiked to Shillong Peak and the view was simply excellent. The hotels in which we were made to stay at Shillong and Cherrapunji were also very decent with sanitization done. The rooms were spacious and most importantly the bathroom was clean. The staff was also very kind to send us some late-night tea for our gossip sessions. We also received fresh and delicious meals every day of our trip which was again a bonus. Our entire group was so happy and we really made a lot of memories. Thanks to the whole team of Thrillophilia!!
