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.
15 March 2014
Meghalaya is such a beautiful place, the trek was thrilling. I went with my 3 other friends on a backpacking trip to North East. We decided to take this trek because it was looking good in pics and indeed it is one of the best trek I did.
Divakar Bhattacharya Living Root Bridge Trek
Best tour for nature lovers, This tour was satisfying as the tour was well-organized and well-managed by the team, the homestay location was perfect with amazing views of the greenery hills and valleys, we tried the Khasi dishes which was incredibly delicious, the trek towards the living root bridge was not that hard but yes, stamina is needed because of the hilly areas. Everywhere only natural beauties like waterfall, rivers, hill and Lots of lots really would love going back.

Charuvrat Ahluwalia 3 day Meghalaya Trekking Tour
Meghalaya trekking was fine. The weather was good, which made the trek feel nicer. I am recommending this trek to all you trek enthusiasts. Have a nice experience trekking in Meghalaya. Everything about this place deserves applause. They have a really rich cultural heritage and food. It is also a nice place for shopping too. Along side the trek try to stay over here for a couple of days to enjoy the shopping, culture and food of this little known place of India.
15 July 2015
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.

Suma Kocchar Trekking in Shillong
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
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!!
19 January 2021
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!
