“Of Rains, Rivers and Root Bridges"

"Of Rains, Rivers and Root Bridges"
The Mega Meghalayan Monsoon Chapter

From hidden waterfalls to natural pools fed by the gushing rain fed rivers, monsoon in Meghalaya is a season that should definitely be experienced by any nature lover willing to explore the rainiest region in the world. Pack your raincoats and ponchos while you get ready for a wet and wild journey into the lush green jungles of Meghalaya! Some of our favourites from this chapter are-

1. Hikes to root bridges and secret handpicked swimming spots
2. Hidden waterfalls of Sohra and Pongtung.
3. Visit Sohra and Mawsynram, both of which hold Guinness world records for the amount of rainfall they receive- all in this season.
4. River canyoning to Umkhakoi
5. Visit the very few local musicians who still play traditional Khasi instruments and witness their art.

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

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.
