Meghalaya

The ‘abode of clouds’ in Sanskrit, Meghalaya resides in the mountainous terrain of northeastern India with stretches of valleys and highland plateaus.  Famous for being the wettest place on planet earth, Sohra, previously known as Cherrapunjee receives an average annual precipitation of about 450 inches. Owing to the climate, the state harbors the Nokrek Biosphere Reserve in the West Garo Hills and the Balphakram National Park in the South Garo Hills. It is the home to a variety of tribal populations like the Khasis, Garos, and Jaintias. A primitive lifestyle is adopted by the people hence living root bridges, architectures created by slowly training the aerial roots of the Ficus elastica tree is a major attraction. Being culturally rich, many raw tribe centric dance festivals like the Dore Rata Dance, the Ka Shad Suk Mynsiem, and the Laho Dance can be witnessed here. Rice and maize serve as the major ingredient of the delicacies prepared which is often completed with betel leaf, along with dried tobacco and lime at the end of the meal. A trip to Meghalaya will certainly give you a close experience with Mother Nature.
