Bhawana's 5 days trip to North East
First time visited the Meghalaya. It was wonderful experience. All thanks to Travel Triangle and Reify team. They made the trip seamless. Even when there was some protest going on in Shillong at that time, we din't face any inconvenience. Fukran from Reify was in regular touch with us. Kudos to him.
Now talking about the trip, places selected by Reify and us, places we traveled include, Umiam lake, Laitlum Canyon, Jowai, Krang Suri Waterfall, Dawki, Single decker root bridge, Mawlynnong, Double Decker Root Bridge, Rainbow Fall, El Waterfall and Natural Swimming Pool, mawsmai caves and Arwah caves.
Best part of the trip was Cherapunji and trekking to Rainbow Falls, the memory will last forever
Jensen's 5 days trip to North East
Enjoyed the trip.. it was memorable.
Good hotels, good cab, friendly driver.
Only 1 thing that I was upset about is the trek to Double decker bridge. Here, there are locals who offer to guide us at 1000rs charge.. when we asked our driver who accompanied us, he said a guide was must.
But we saw few other travelers who came for the trek without a guide.
Later we spoke to our guide and he too revealed it's not compulsory. We paid him half the amount and sent him back midway.
We expected the driver to atleast help in this regard.. we could have saved 1k.
Also, just a suggestion: Visit to Mawlynnong can be excluded from the itinerary. It was a real waste of time and money. To he honest, it felt like 4D 4N trip rather than 5D 4N.
Trip could have been made less expensive.
Lastly, your agent ( i believe his name was Rohan) told me and I quote "This is the best time to visit chirapunjee.. the 7 sisters falls will be in full flow"
Chirapunjee is very dry at this time of the year. Not a single drop of water in the 7 sisters falls. Not that i was expecting to see lot of water, but my hopes were unecessarily brought up by the agent.
Lakshmipathydevaraj's 5 days trip to North East
We missed two areas during the trip. Don Bosco museum and lady hydari park.
Kindly aware of the working days of public places.
Initially cab came 7 seater type. But we booked traveller.
Apart from everything fine.
Dawki lake, Bangladesh border, elephant falls, umiam lake,mawlynnong village...
Venkat's 5 days trip to North East
It was a family trip was during the Christmas vacation 5D and 4N. There was a 5 hr delay in flight due to bad weather. Hence we had to miss few places in 1st day. So please plan a day extra on your trip. I being from Chennai with very limited exposure to Hindi wanted a guide who can understand English to little bit for a smooth travel. But to a surprise, the guide cum driver was very fluent in English and cooperative too. Though we initially had a fear of travelling to NE due to political turmoil with curfew etc., Ms Maurima of Siang gave hope for my travel. Added Mr. Prince guide cum driver should few items which are not covered in iternary as well. He really made us the trip very memorable.
EC hotel at Shillong is okay, 1st day of my stay, they didn't give us towels the room 205 has problems in bathroom door and will not close as it got bloated to moisture.
2nd day at EC hotel was good and they changed the room and it was okay. Had to pay extra for heater.
The breakfast spread at EC hotel is really good covers continental, South Indian, North Indian
3 day at cordial hotel at chirapunjee was exceptional, the heater was included in it. The hotel was neater than EC at Shillong. The breakfast spread is very limited but it was good..
4th day at hotel viswaratna at Guwahati. Wonderful stay. Breakfast spread was very good.
Must visit places: laittium canyon, Weisawdong falls & Trek, Nohkalikai falls & trek, zip lining on the way to chirapunjee from Shillong, arwah and Mawsmai cave, Umngot river at Dawki, Bangladesh border checkpost, Mawlynnong village and live root bridge, Krang Suri waterfall.
If possible do chirapunjee double decker root bridge 3700 steps. I have to miss due to time constraints.
Finally not to forget photo with khasi traditional dress..
At Guwahati Umanada temple, ferry in Brahmaputra, fancy bazaar..
Rest all are okay items..
I thank Ms Maurima and Mr. Prince in making the trip more memorable. Recommend both and I would travel again to see other NE places (Kaziranga and Arunachal Pradesh)
Tvenumadhava's 7 days trip to North East
We like to thank siang explorer who made out trip very memorable and wonderful. The driver Mr. Deepak chetri was very helpful during our trip. He was very good to our son and by the end of the trip my son and deepak became very good friends. He also managed the time very well and helped us cover almost all the places we planned to visit. He also helped us find a nd very good assames tea and green tea in Guwahati and shopping at various locations.
The hotels booked by siang were very good, all the hotels had very good food. We were worried about food for our 4yr old son but all the hotels qw stayed were able to cook the food as per our instructions and the food we ate was also very tasty.
Lastly, we really appreciate Mr. Dip from siang explorer who helped us with planning our trip and help customize the trip as per our needs.
I would definitely recommend siang explorer to anyone who is planning a trip to the northeast India.

Bharath's 7 days trip to North East
We booked Meghalaya (Shillong, Cherrapunji, Dawki, and Mawlynnong) and Assam (Kaziranga National Park) tour for me and my wife with Siang Explorer. Mayurima coordinated planning the itinerary and was cooperative with all modifications we asked for. We booked taxi, hotels, and Safari in Kaziranga all from Siang.
Overall, the trip went smooth without any major issue. We had two drivers for our trip, Kamal (first 5 days) and Nazim (last 2 days). Both of them did good job with driving. The issue we had with Kamal was that, he never used to say anything about the places he was taking us. We tried talking to him, but the answers used to be one word or yes/no, which was very discouraging to continue the talk. He just used to stop the car at a place and we had to figure out where he has brought us on our own (mobile network was poor in most places for us to see on maps). Initially he took the itinerary lightly and was taking us to the places of his choice, but when we stressed on following the itinerary he started doing it. However, Kamal's driving was good and he did not trouble us in any way. Our second driver Nazim was very entertaining and energetic. He used to take extra interest and stopped the car at some nice places for photos. He was saying whatever he knows about each of the places. Overall we had a great time with Nazim.
The hotel rooms were good and clean all throughout our trip, except that the hotel in Cherrapunji was a little over hyped by Mayurima during our discussions, which turned out to be slightly disappointing (Kutmadan resort - No mobile network and no wifi, very far away from mainstream village, rooms were good but not as great as hyped by Mayurima. She hiked the price of the trip for booking this hotel).
Finally, I would say, our trip was comfortable and satisfactory and I suggest anyone planning for a North East trip to consider Siang through Travel Triangle for their trip.
Hemangi's 6 days trip to North East
All hotels were good except the one in Mawlynnong streamside guest house. In this hotel, the food was pathetic and the service was ok. Too costly as the food facilities were too bad. Rest of the hotels and can driver was good.
Kaziranga elephant safari, dawki river boating, Mawlynnong village and it's heavenly beauty, mesmerizing Shillong and Cherrapunji. The overall trip was a great experience. Meghalaya rocks.
Vijay's 9 days trip to North East
I am sharing my feedback of the north east trip arranged by itvaar through Travel triangle here.
Ours was a 9 day trip to Assam and Meghalaya covering Kaziranga, Guwahati, Shillong, Cherapunjee and Mawlynnong.
To begin with the entire process of shortlisting the location, getting quotes, discussion and finalization of the final package on Travel triangle was very convenient and I would highly recommend them for anybody looking to have a great vacation.
I had booked the trip with itvaar/Riefy and Poonam was my point of contact. She was absolutely fantastic in her support right through the trip. The promptness in responding, being flexible with options, suggesting and recommending good options considering we were travelling with small kids etc was perfectly handled by Poonam and I would rate her service (5/5) to be one of the best parts of the whole planning process.
The schedule was very comfortable giving time at each place. The dedicated vehicle and driver were superb. The driver was very good and knew the places so well. He was patient and helpful. Our trip would not have been memorable without his support and flexibility. He dropped us at the police bazaar in Shillong for shopping and also picked us up where required. All of these were unplanned and decided by us which were accommodated without any fuss. Only feedback on the driver would be if he could tell us a little more about the places based on his experience which would have been icing on the cake.
The hotels were all good. However we found some staff in Shillong Meera holiday villa a bit rude.
Mawlynnong bamboo cottage was good but after reaching there we realized better options existed.
Kaziranga was not a part of our original plan and Poonam helped us by adding it just 2 weeks before travel without any additional costs by managing the itinerary efficiently. All in all, a great memorable trip for us which will be cherished for a long long time.
Thanks, Itvaar, Poonam, Ruben (driver) and travel triangle for a great trip.
I would recommend them to anybody planning their trip to northeast.
Deepak's 7 days trip to North East
Short form of the feedback:
Starting July 11 thru' 17, '19 we had a memorable tour of NE India (mainly Meghalaya & a bit of Guwahati). We enjoyed every moment of it. Many thanks to Nikita from Reify/Itvaar Travels for putting together the overall package, detailed planning and for her constant support right thru' the tour.
Here is a link to the our pictures from the tour: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmFj8TeG (click the 'play' button to view in slide-show mode).
Long form of the feedback:
It was the worst of times and yet the best of times .. In many ways.
Promises and credible relationships were available only at a premium, that which invariably breakdown despite the best of intentions, when working at breakneck speed since the beginning of the year on a high-profile project, that which we were terribly behind and that which we had run out of considerations to not deliver. We were now effectively playing a test match game at T20 speed. Who knew if we would end up at 500 for 1 or would be all out below 100. If one batsman got out in the high-profile chase with time running out, then the next one in line had to pick up the gauntlet and step up his or her game. As Lord Tennyson so eloquently wrote in Charge of the Light Brigade, “Was there a man dismayed? Not though the soldier knew, Someone had blundered. Theirs was not to make reply, Theirs was not to reason why, Theirs but to do and die, Into the Valley of Death …”.
It was the worst of times and yet the best of times .. To be associated with our project execution team.
Such pressure invariably spills over onto the family which, though understanding, cannot quite fathom the necessity of an all-out war-room 24x7 work environment. After one especially contentious call, my wife asked me if I’m okay. Say I, “Yes, its just that I was practicing the ‘Raga Deepak’. Pretty normal under the circumstances. Logical thinking was at a premium.. But things took for a worse, family wise, when we had to cancel a much-awaited vacation to Iceland, mainly because, well you guessed it, work took precedence. But our vacation window for the year was closing. Our son, who is due to start his Master’s program this coming fall, gave us a 2 week window in July of his availability to join my wife & I on a vacation together. Also wanted to visit his grandma. Rescheduling to Iceland was off the table and we turned our sights to India. The 2 week window brought a clarity of purpose.
Workwise, it was finally possible to see the light at the end of the long project tunnel, particularly after a quick dash to our co-developers on-site. That was good. Also, India was a good choice since I could quickly join up with our work team in India. A proposal for a workation (work + vacation) in India was quickly approved. We now turned our attention to picking a vacation spot in India. Not much time to figure that out. A new deadline. So, what’s new?
It was the worst of times and yet the best of times .. To plan a vacation.
July is monsoon time in India. We considered a few drier spots, the western & northern parts. Vacation spots in Gujarat, Himachal, Punjab were in consideration. But none seemed to gel well enough. And then an idea. Why try to avoid the monsoons at all? Why not pick a spot particularly well known for its monsoon rains: Cherrapunjee? That which has the reputation of the rainiest spot on Earth, or atleast that we hadlearnt during our school history lessons. If we could follow Darwin to the Galapagos, our first and only trek of significance into the Himalayas and the Indus Valley Civilization to Harappa, then following the monsoons into Cherrapunjee while impractical, did sounds just about right. Hey, and don’t’ forget the possibility to douse ‘Deepak Raga’ with ‘Megh Raga’.
It was the worst of times and yet the best of times .. To take a monsoon vacation in Cherrapunjee.
Cherrapunjee is in North East India. Organizing a vacation in India requires some level of ground support, particularly when coming from the US. Normally, we get ground support from relatives or friends who have provide contacts, or better still do the reservations & bookings on our behalf. But the North East is a different pickle altogether. None of our contacts knew much about the North East. What exactly to see in Cherrapunjee, or thereabouts? Other that its place in school history books, was it a place worth going to? A quick research on the web alleviated our initial concerns. The more we read, the more it seemed that we had stumbled on a hidden gem, just like Pokhara Nepal that we visited a couple of years back.
But finding our way around there was still an issue. We normally self-organize our vacation travels. To do this requires enough lead time. In this case, we did not have that luxury. Nor, did we get enough leads from the web on how to self-organize one either.
We were now down to Plan C: Contact a few travel agents that we could find on the web. The first one sent back a somewhat vague reply. After waiting in vain on them a few days, we tried the next one. Travel Triangle. Travel Triangle gave an immediate response back, forwarded our request to Nikita from Reify/Itvaar, an agency that specialized in the NE region. Nikita was a game changer. She is truly a responsive travel agent. After a short chat on WhatsApp, Nikita quickly understood our requirements and within a day put together a tour package that was close to what we might have put together ourselves.
By this time word had got around that that we were going to the NE. A few close relatives were intrigued enough that they wanted to join us. An initial party of three quickly turned into a potential party of eight or nine. We settled down to a party of seven with one late joinee.
Yet could we rely on an unknown agent from an unknown agency that had our contact from yet another unknown forwarding agent? What might be the chances of broken promises. Is Reify/Itvaar another fly-by-night operator? It came down to simply my judgement on how credible Nikita herself was. She was simultaneously responsive and insistent enough to raise our confidence in the agency. It was obvious enough that Reify/Itvaar wanted our business. But it was her responsiveness and sufficiently detailed plan that convinced us Reify/Itvaar was a credible enough agency. Our relatives joining us seemed overall fine with the proposal & pricing. Then after 3/4 modifications, that which Nikita was very quick to help work thru’ on, we finalized on 7day/6night proposal.
We now had a day-by-day schedule, a vehicle with driver reserved and hotel bookings over a week or so. The schedule included the towns of Guwahati (in Assam), Shillong, Mawlynnong, Dawki and Cherrapungi (the last four in Meghalaya). We quickly learned about Shillong’s reputation as the Scotland of the East, Mawlynnong’s as the cleanest village in Asia (no kidding!) and Dawki’s as a town bordering Bangladesh. More hidden gems, for sure.
It was the worst of times and yet the best of times .. Cherrapunjee was ON, and more.
To get in meant a 40+ hour journey from Philadelphia to Doha to Delhi to Guwahati. The last leg of our outbound journey from Guwahati airport to Shillong would in a Tempo Traveler van included as part of the overall package.
The Tempo Traveler and its driver, Tapeshwar would be our constants thru’ the tour. This was the first litmus test on the quality of the arrangements by Reify/Itvaar. The van was good sized 12 seater with plenty of space for our bags and in very good condition. Plenty of room for all.
We would start our tour from Shillong, with Guwahati the last stop on our way back. One relative joined us at Guwahati airport. The others joined us the next day in Shillong. Given the itinerary, it was mostly a tour of Meghalaya, just a day to visit around Guwahati.
Thru’ the week, Tapeshwar was both our driver and guide thru’ the tour. A soft spoken and ever smiling Assamese, knew his way around and ever ready to adjust per our needs. With a good vehicle, Tapeshwar (literally) at the front end and Nikita at the back end, we had an amazingly good support system to take us thru’ the tour. Nikita was ever available thru’ the entire tour to help us as required. We created a WhatsApp group for the tour. The WhatApp group was very useful too, particularly to share pictures with each other. Nikita, though not on the tour, was also in the group. And she was ever attentive to all messages that required her help.
With Nikita & Tapeshwar, we had a memorable trip and enjoyed every moment of it. Overall hotel arrangements were very good (except the last one in Guwahati, where both the room bathroom and breakfast arrangements were sub-par). Our one regret is that we do not have a picture of either. We neglected to take one with Tapeshwar (not sure how that happened). We never met Nikita. We can only imagine what she might be like. But both will be in our thoughts, every time we reminiscence about the tour.
It was the best of times .. thanks to Nikita & Tapeshwar & Meghalaya.
Mamatha's 8 days trip to North East
It started with constant follow up for the hotel vouchers and confirmation of the trip. There was no follow up from the travel agent or travel triangle's trip advisor regarding cab details till 1 day before the trip also. The trip was not planned properly. We drove out of Shillong on a 3 hour ride to Krang Shuri falls, came back to town and drove to Dawki and Mawlynnong the next day, another 3 hour ride. One could have stayed overnight at Mawlynnong, considering we were already staying there the next night. There were no timings provided for sight seeing places and we literally had to google everything. It was told that the driver would work as a guide, however, the driver was least interested to even drive around to places. On top, he was cribbing through out like why do you have to go to the city, it is full of traffic jam, why do you wanna go to a certain place, there is nothing to see.
This was my first booking through Travel triangle. Despite of picking up an expensive itinerary, I had an unpleasant experience. Would definitely think twice before booking another trip through the portal and ofcourse, through the agency.
