Jakrem Overview

Ranked 54 of 43 sightseeing in Shillong

Located over 64 km from Shillong, the capital of Meghalaya, Jakrem is one of the many hidden wonders of the country. Not densely populated like the other tourist destination in Meghalaya, Jakrem is the land of hot springs. The area is blessed with bursts of hot sulphur water, which is gaining popularity among the people across the globe.

Jakrem is quickly getting recognised for the beautiful health resort it is. The waters in these scenic hot springs are said to carry curative medicinal properties and is used by most tourists as a hot bath for good health.

Since it is located not too far from Shillong and can be accessed from the Mawkyrwat-Shillong Road, visitors can take a taxi or a bus and reach Jakrem to enjoy a relaxing dip in the hot waters, especially in the colder seasons. You can stop at the many villages en route to Jakrem and enjoy a typical Meghalayan cuisine meal.

Jakrem, being a potential health spa, has bathing compartments made available for the public around the hot water springs. Drive down to this location and jump into the springs or just have a lovely picnic around the waters during the next winter.

Lushious green hills

Most part of Meghalaya, is surrounded by this lush green hills. The trip from Shillong to other cities will provide a picturesque view of this hills. The sun plays hide and seek, a car trip around these is a sure pleasure to the minds and eyes. Book a cab from Shillong for sightseeings in Sohra and you get to have an enthralling view of this natural scapes of earth.

Lesser known site, but very nice

Jakrem is a little known site, where lies a Hot spring. This water is extremely good for the skin and the body, since it contains volcanic minerals. It is managed by a private party, who does not maintain cleanliness, and is only after money. The water is channelised through pipes and gets distributed to many closed rooms for visitors to take bath. But the place needs cleaning and hygiene.

A natural hot spring

Aviod it !

After a looooong drive to this place, all we could see is stinking wash rooms and hot water coming out of pipe lines. We were disappointed as we expected hot springs like in Manikaran.
