Going to Meghalaya which is in north east was like a dream for me. Being a proper delhiite our weekend or long trip usually is Goa, Uttrakhand and Himachal Pradesh but still north east for us was some distant place but for me it was a paradise waiting to be explored!
Honestly I wouldn’t in my wildest dream have imagined to go there that too alone but destiny had it.
I had to visit Guwahati for some work and then it struck me that Meghalaya is barely 2hrs away from Guwahati. Then I started my long planning and talking to every person who has gone there, bombarding numerous questions, stalking people on Instagram(yes I am that crazy)..But there is one question I asked everyone there. Is it safe to go alone there? I will answer it later.
So I had 2 days of work at Guwahati and rest 4 days to explore the gem that I am never going to forget this my whole life.
2 days in Guwahati:
Guwahati is a very pleasant city with greenery and the mighty Bhrahmaputra.It is a gateway to the north east and the spirituality. It’s a simple yet unique with local flavor, colonial era mansion and beautiful palm trees.
The places I covered was Paltan bazaar, Fancy bazaar, Gam’s delicacy to taste authentic food of Assam. But the best part was cruise which is of 300rs per head for one hour of cruise with live music and amazing food and it’s a must thing to do in the evening when you are in Guwahati!
