An experiential trip to NorthEast India
Guwahati – Shillong – Cherrapunjee
This June, enjoy the magic of monsoon in the mystic wonderland called Northeast. Witness the famous festival of the Kamakhya Temple in Guwahati – Ambubachi Mela, also known as Kumbh Mela of the East. It is believed that the goddess of the temple, Devi Kamakhya, goes through her annual cycle of menstruation during this time and the doors of the temple remains closed for three days and on the fourth day the devotees are allowed to enter the temple to worship the Mother Goddess.
The temple located atop Nilachal Hills in Guwahati wears a different look during the festival—similar to the famous Kumbh Mela as lakhs of devotees including Sadhus throng the temple during this period. The temple is also one of the four Adi Shakti Piths in India and is associated with Tantric Shakti cult prevalent in eastern parts of India. We take you further to chase the monsoon up in the hills of Meghalaya known as the ‘Abode of Clouds’ and to experience rain walks in enchanting land of Cherrapunjee where clouds sweep over the nearby hills. The trip also include treks amidst natural springs and to the living root bridges, which are unique to Meghalaya only!
