We chose Meghalaya for a road trip in September because it’s known to be beautiful in monsoons with waterfalls in full swing and mesmerizing greenery around. Boy, we were wrong. Meghalaya is much more than that. Funky custom Maruti Cars, occult stories, well-dressed women, roosters, juiciest Pineapples, Rock & Roll, and everyone knows how to play guitar, Meghalaya surprised us in every way possible. Variegated landscapes and paved roads, it was ‘straight out of heaven’ experience driving in and around Meghalaya.
Having said that, I urge you to travel mindfully to any place you go. At the most resplendent and not so explored places in Meghalaya, I found plastic in the form of water bottles, Chips bags, and other trash items. It’s high time for us to responsibly otherwise we’ll be trapped in a smoggy atmosphere with zero sky visibility and will miss the opportunity to experience this Earth in its most natural essence.
HOW TO REACH
Ideally, you can fly to Guwahati and then take shared cabs to any tourist destination. Shared cabs are the main public transport in Meghalaya and they are pretty cheap too. (INR 80-200) However, if you are driving by yourself (Car or Bike), you get to know underrated beautiful places and bask in the authentic beauty of Meghalaya. We pre-booked Zoom Car and drove around.
