    The best months to visit this state are April and June. The pleasant weather permits outdoor activities. In Meghalaya, summers are ideal for adventure holidays, as you get to enjoy the outdoors without being afflicted by too much extraordinary heat.


    Q: What are the best things to do on the Meghalaya tour?

    Meghalaya is known for its natural beauty. Especially well known are the living root bridges in Cherrapunji. In Meghalaya, you can also explore Mawsmai caves and run along the David Scott Trail. In this highland state, you will find some of India's highest peaks and lush green tropical forests, but only a few tourists make it to this heavenly destination because Meghayala has (so far!) remained undiscovered.

    We believe that 6 days is sufficient, but if you want to cover the whole Northwest region and if you are willing to do some extra travelling, we recommend 15 days at a time.

     

    Q: What is Meghalaya’s most famous food?
    Rice with spicy meat and seafood preparations is of major importance to the Khasi and Jaintia people. They raise goats, pigs, birds, ducks, and cows, which they enjoy eating. Two popular Khasi recipes are jadoh (a delicious meat dish with spices) and ki kpu (a savory fish curry). These two delicacies are enjoyed by all tribes within the states. Another favourite Garo dish is tungrymbai, made from bamboo shoots that are cooked down into a spicy curry-like meal.

    To avoid the rush, it is recommended to get a VIP pass from the counter, which opens in the morning at around 7:00 a.m. and charges Rs. 500 per person. After purchasing the ticket from the counter, you will be allotted time for darshan within the next hour. Until then, wait in the private waiting room on temple premises. Noted: If pilgrims have any delay or postpone the darshan timings of the opulent deity Sri Venkateswara (Balaji), they can be booked for midnight viewing by paying an extra charge of Rs 3000 per head.
