1. The breathtaking scenery of the Laitlum Canyons



Your search for the most picturesque place in Meghalaya ends here. Literally translating to ‘The End of the World’, Laitlum canyons take your breath away with the view they offer from the top of the East Khasi hills. It’s also the best place to get a bird’s eye view of the endless gorge carved up by rivers running deep into the lush valley.  

HolidayIQ reviewer Sraka says, “Hauntingly beautiful place in remote part of Shillong. In the monsoon it’s like walking in the clouds. Must visit preferrably at 4-5 pm to enjoy the beauty of sunset among clouds.”

2. Soul soothing view at the Mawkdok Dympep Valley View


If you’re looking to go to someplace peaceful with a beautiful natural view, the Mawkdok Dympep Valley is perfect for you. Covered in a blanket of silence and fog, the natural beauty surrounding this place will tune you out of the civilization. To top it off, it’s almost surreal when it’s raining here.

HolidayIQ traveller Rohit says, “Cool, calm ziplining at Rs 500/- per head is must. There are three ziplines, I was a first timer, overcame fear of unknown, followed instructions and had great fun.”

3. Nature's unbridled love at the natural swimming pool, Nongriat


Not one for artificial swimming pools and water parks? Experience something truly magical by spending some time in this natural swimming pool near Nongriat. Swim in the crystal clear water refueled by the pure rainwater and fall in love with the beauty of nature.

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.”

4. The incredible Hanging Bridge,Tyrna

Everybody has heard of the famous living root bridges of Meghalaya but if you’re interested in something else, visit the Hanging bridge at Tyrna. Apart from being an excellent photo opportunity, it’s also surrounded by natural beauty that’s sure to spellbind you.
