One of the most popular requests that we get from our guests making their way to the North East India for the first time is for an itinerary that combines the natural untouched beauty of Meghalaya with a trip to the wilderness of Kaziranga National Park in Assam, home to the famous One-horned Rhinoceros.
Well, your wish is our command!
In this exciting chapter, we have put together a plan where we will be exploring some of our favourite spots in Meghalaya, the abode of clouds, for a span of 5 nights and then make our way to the Kaziranga National Park in Assam where we will spend 2 nights, embarking on jeep safaris during the day, and bonding with our fellow travellers by night.
In Meghalaya, “The Abode of Clouds”, you can assume that most of your explorations are going to be on foot (that’s how you get to the best places). Whether it be hiking through forests filled with natural pools and living root bridges, adventuring around crystal clear rivers, or even a little bit of caving, which by the way is possible only during this time of the year (November to March), we have a lot planned to ensure we keep you in awe of this state throughout your time here.
Now, about Assam! The state of Assam has always been looked at as a gateway to the rest of North East India. However, for those who know better, the state is so much more than being just a gateway. Whether it be the famous tea that the state is known for the world over, or the wildlife and stunning natural beauty that is found all along the mighty Brahmaputra that passes through the state, or the cultural diversity and rich history that the state has, there’s a lot that Assam has to offer for those who are curious. However, in this chapter, with it’s time constraints, we will only delve into what Kaziranga has to offer.
What does Kaziranga have to offer?
In our short time here, we will be embarking on a sunrise safari around one of the forest ranges, as well as delve into the local culture of the Mising community of Assam as we visit Panbari, a small village, not too far away from your stay. There, we will explore how the local rice beer is made, as well as feast on a hearty ethnic lunch.
So gear up, explorer! This is a curation you do not want to miss.
