    Family trip Assam

    Written by

    Assam is a place that has beautiful picturesque landscapes, lush greenery, spiritual ambience and very warm and welcoming locals. The land of many wildlife reserves and home to one-horned rhino, Assam is not just about beautiful tourist spots and that is all we wanted. We decided for an Assam family tour considering all this. With a river island at Majuli and the oldest temple in India, Assam should be on every traveler’s list. While Sarat was looking for a relaxing escapade with his family he felt nothing can beat the paradisiacal views of the tea gardens and lush greenery of Assam. Read along to know more about how he had the most surreal experience at this serene land of North-east.

    I and my family are people who love hills and destinations which offer a variety of places to explore and are adorned with lush green landscapes and amazing weather all around the year. Assam ticks all those points and offered much more. The trip to the beautiful state gave us a much-needed break from the regular, monotonous life and offered us to be in direct contact with nature and be at leisure. Our family tour to Assam was everything we wanted it to be and much more. The locals were very friendly and helpful in most of the places. Thanks to TravelTriangle for the meticulous planning and taking care of everything that we wanted our trip to be. The stay at every place was fantastic and the trip was a full-on value for money experience.

    Our trip kick-started with us marveling along the scenic route on our way to leisure time at the Sai Mi Ka Resort. We took an incredibly scenic route with water rolling down from the roadside mountains, the aroma of pine trees, lush green vegetation and orchid flowers to reach the ‘Scotland of the East’ – Shillong. Enroute we visit Barapani, Umiam Lake or Barapani – is the biggest artificial lake in Meghalaya, a majestic placid lake surrounded by Sylvan hills.

    2.Trek To Double Decker Bridge

    Post a hearty breakfast, we headed to explore the local sights of Cherraapunji and man! It is one hell of a place! We then headed to trek the Double Decker Bridge. Please note that this trek has 3700 steps on each side and we took 7 hours to complete it but once we reached where we had started for, we felt it was all worth it. We also looked for things to buy in Assam and bought souvenirs.

    We started our day by visiting the Seven Sisters falls and then Mawsmai cave which was exceptionally beautiful. We then spent the evening in Cherrapunji. And then headed to Dawki. Dawki – the town at the India-Bangladesh border is known for Suspension bridge above the Umngot river. The suspension bridge was constructed during the British rule. We enjoyed the country boat ride in the Umngot river. The specialty of the Umngot river is that – the water is crystal clear and you can see through it which made our Meghalaya family tour an epic experience.

    4.Excursion To Mawsynram

Mawsynram, a village in the East Khasi Hills district of Meghalaya state in north-eastern India is 65 kilometers away from Shillong. We visited Mawjymbuin caves, Krem Dam and other interesting places and made the most of our Meghalaya family tour.

    One of my favorite parts of the trip was to visit Wat Lake where who those enjoy boating can rejoice. We then went to Don-Bosco Museum and got to know more about the beautiful place that we were guests to and later visited Elephant Falls situated at the outskirts of Shillong which were a treat for the eyes and the lush greenery that surrounds it makes it even more refreshing.

    This morning we started our day a little early and moved for our first Jungle ride to Manas National Park. The wildlife safari is the best medium to explore a wildlife sanctuary and view the wildlife from a very close. This one-hour safari took us through dense and narrow paths. Later we returned to the resort for breakfast. We then were ready for our first vehicle safari to Manas National Park. Here we moved on the wild path of Manas National Park to explore the most stunning pristine wildlife habitat which made our Assam family tour an awesome experience.
