The name “Meghalaya” comes from “Megh” which translates to “clouds” and “Alaya” which means “an abode”. True to its name, the abode of clouds, with it’s natural offerings – the rain, has given destinations in Meghalaya (Sohra and Mawsynram) the status of receiving the most amount of average rainfall in the world through multiple recognised records.

This very rainfall, in many ways, over millions of years, has shaped the geology and topography of the state resulting in one of the most beautiful terrains one may come across in the world. A natural playground for the adventurer at heart – if you grew up in the villages of Meghalaya, no amusement park in all of the land would fascinate you as much anymore.

From lush green forests to hidden waterfalls to crystal clear natural pools and streams all fresh and alive after the last few months of rain, this trip is a dream come true for any nature-lover. If, like us, the thought of a dip in a hidden natural pool by a waterfall in the forest excites you more than a swimming pool, it’s time to book those tickets and dive right in!

How difficult is double decker root bridge Trek?

Climbing down will take approximately 1.5-2 hours. There is a beautiful waterfall right in front of the double decker bridge, where you can relax for a while. If you want to go further, to the Rainbow waterfall, it will take another 1-2 hours. Climbing back those 3000 steps will take another 2-3 hours.

Is the Umngot river transparent throughout the year in Shnongpdeng?

While shallow water towards the bank may remain clear for most the year, if you want to catch a view of the picturesque Dawki River at its clearest, you should stick to the drier months of December to March.

What is the best time to visit Shnongpdeng?

November to May is the best season to visit Shnongpdeng
The most appropriate time to visit Shnongpdeng is in the winter and summer seasons, between November and May to explore its immense natural beauty. At this time of year, the weather is more pleasant and comfortable for travelling around.

What water activities can i do in Shnongpdeng?

There are a multitude of activities you can do at Dawki River including but not limited to swimming, snorkeling and kayaking. You can also go rappelling or ziplining in case you want to see the river up close without getting wet.

How can we swim in such harsh climates?

Your primary day of water activities shall be at Shnongpdeng. Shnongpdeng is a neighbouring town of Bangladesh and is at an altitude of 151 feet above sea level only! While no doubt the waters will be cold, a swim when the sun is harsh above you during the day is not the worst idea.
For the best experience, we would recommend full body wet suits during this season.
