Meghalaya backpacking trip is a custom-tailored experience including serenity, peace, and adventure all at the same time
Now, the name Meghalaya has its own significance. It means the land of clouds in the Sanskrit language. The name is true in all sense as Meghalaya is the wettest place globally and is usually covered with clouds
Now, Meghalaya is famous for various things and Limestone Caves is one of them. These caves can also be considered as one of the many specialties of the place. Also, the caves have another name for themselves and are rightly called ‘Caves in the Abode of the Clouds’.
Moving on, adventure sport is also one of the reasons people go to Meghalaya. So, activities like trekking, camping, mountaineering, rock-climbing, and water sports are all part of the pack here
The peace and serenity of the place mixed with options for unleashing the adventure junkie in you make it one of the perfect destinations to visit in India
Best time to visit Meghalaya is between October to June when the weather in Meghalaya is nice. During this time, one can enjoy the full experience of visiting Meghalaya
Avoid the state during heavy rainfall season at all you'll end up is one foot deep muddy waters all over the place and your trip would be ruined in that case
