Monsoon Landscape in Meghalaya

Monsoon Landscape in Meghalaya

Northeast India is a land of undulating terrain, with lush green plains dotted with sweeping hills, swaddled in a wraith-like mist. Translated as the abode of clouds, many have remarked upon its topographical resemblance to the Scottish Lowlands. This beautiful state, nestled between Assam and Bangladesh, is noted as one of the wettest places on the planet. Meghalaya's rich diversity of flora and fauna includes many rare species of birds and animals making the state fabulous for photography during monsoon. This trip will be centered upon chasing wild, monsoon weather over a landscape, waterfalls that cascade down deep gorges, winding through beautifully terraced fields, around stone caves and stunning rock formations. Most of all, low clouds kissing the gorges, an amazing sight to make pictures of that you will cherish for the rest of your life. We shall visit parts of the Khasi and Jaintia Hills, which are richly endowed with natural beauty. Cherrapunji, situated aloft the southern fringes of the Khasi Hills, amidst the clouds, is a mesmerising town carved out of a dissected plateau. Also known as Sohra, it is home to the Nohkalikai Falls, the tallest plunge waterfall in India. The living root bridges found in Sohra and Mawlinlong are unique in the world and an amazing sight of bioengineering to behold. The Karngsuri Falls in the Jaintia Hills are particularly beautiful and allow one to shoot from inside them with the water cascading like a curtain before you
