The Meghalaya Jeep Safari:
Meghalaya is one of the Seven Sister States of northeast India, filled with mountainous terrains, stretches of valley and highland plateaus, and is geologically rich. The word Meghalaya means the “the adobe of clouds” in Sanskrit, and the various patterns and colours of clouds throughout the day is a mesmerising sight.
Why the Jeep Safari?
We all have our excitements and anxieties to explore new places, discover new routes, experience the varied cultures, traditions, cuisines specific to a place and meet people from across the country. Our Jeep Safari trips take you to the heart of these unexplored places and give you an opportunity to experience the kind of ‘life’ people live there through our unique homestay, local visit and many such exciting activities, giving you a Life Away From Life in a true sense.
