2. The breathtaking waterfalls!


With the amount of rainfall Meghalaya receives, it’s not surprising it is home to some of the most astonishingly beautiful waterfalls in the country. If you’re tired of tourists taking bath in waterfalls all over the country, Meghalaya is the perfect place for you for people here respect the sanctity of the water bodies and help maintain the natural beauty of these places.

HolidayIQ traveller Amit says, “Highest waterfall in the country. One can trek up from the viewpoint upto the place from where the water gushes down. A bird's eye view of Bangladesh is another attraction for this waterfall. Eat at the cafe at the view point and enjoy the chill of the place.”

4. The roaring monsoon!




People usually don’t travel to experience weather and a season as often as they travel for locations and destinations. In Meghalaya, the monsoon is an attraction in itself. With the state receiving some of the highest rainfall in the world, it’s bliss for anyone who loves chasing the clouds. Travel with the wafting clouds and experience the rain like it’s your companion.

HolidayIQ reviewer Aiban says, “Nongriat, according to me, is one of the most adventurous places I have ever experienced in my journey with nature in Northeast India. Witness the living root bridges, the rainbow falls (a waterfall which is connected by two/three more of waterfalls before it), and get a chance to float on crystal clear waters.”
