At Umkiang, we crossed the state borders and entered Assam. One can see and feel the distinct difference between the two states by the sudden change in the conditions of the road and the surroundings. By now we were on the Barail Range. After crossing Malidor, a famous picnic spot of the region, we crossed a bailey bridge and within few minute started descending from the hills and entered the plains. We passed Kalain Cherra tea estate on the way and the Badarpur Ghat where we crossed the Barak bridge. From there, we travelled for another two hours on NH53 to reach home in SilcharThe best part of the trip was the true beauty of Meghalaya that I could enjoy. And thanks to the rain, I actually saw clouds so close that I could have almost touched them.
