A trip on a low budget after planning for about a month. It's about four friends who were done with exams and needed to explore and spend time with nature and have some fun. Let's get this started.
We started from Guwahati early in the morning. Took a taxi to Shillong. From Shillong we took a taxi which would drop us to our homestay in Cherrapunji and also take us to a few pretty places in Cherrapunji.
After a fun drive for some time we first went to Garden of Caves in Cherrapunji. It is a less crowded place and has a lot of Waterfalls inside it. Forgot the total number of Waterfalls. Sorry about that. But it's fun and beautiful.
The garden of Caves also has a sacred forest inside and you can drink sacred water flowing directly from inside of a rock. They have kept bamboos cut beautifully to be used as mugs to drink the water.
The garden of Caves has a rock in the shape of a heart, called as Heart shaped stone.
After Garden of Caves, we went to the homestay we were to stay at. The homestay is called as Pateng Homestay. It's the coziest homestay I've ever stayed at. And the hosts are super amazing people. The food they serve is very very delicious and totally budget friendly.
According to our pre planned itinerary, we then went to Wei Sawdong. It is a triple decker Waterfall.
To reach the waterfall a trek of 30-45 mins is required. The time depends on fitness level. At some points, the trek has an inclination of 75-90 degrees. It was slippery on the day we went which made the trek a bit difficult. But then when we reached the place, all of us were blown away! WHAT. A. VIEW.
I'd recommend everyone to visit this super cool and beautiful place.
After the end of the trek we got back to our taxi and started our journey towards Nohkalikai Falls, Asia's largest plunge falls.
The Nohkalikai falls is mighty, beautiful and blissful. In minutes, the views get obstructed by clouds and again'in minutes the clouds begin to clear out and you can get the beautiful views again. We had delicious fruits out there.
It was time for us to go back, have lunch and take some rest after a fun filled day.
We slept early with excitement about the next day's trek and everything we were to witness.
