Meghalaya – Dawki, Umngot River, and Mawlynnong


In an earlier post, I described the Cherrapunji and Nongriat section of Meghalaya that I visited. In this post, I”ll talk about the rest of the places that I saw in Meghalaya.

For your reference, here is the map of Meghalaya again. It outlines perfectly the routes we took and the places we saw.

In the previous post, I covered the left side of the fork. In this post, I chat about the right-side.

48 hours in Cherrapunji


I’ll be honest when I say that I didn’t really know what to expect before visiting Cherrapunji. Sure you could guess that the clue was in the fact that Cherrapunji is the rainiest place in the world.

I went in armed and ready with coat, raincoat, and umbrella. Turned out, the only thing I needed is a light jacket.

Before I get into the details of the places I visited, let me just step back and give a quick overview of all that’s there to see and do in Meghalaya.
