This trek has a beautiful trek path. This can be done at any season. A couple of years back, my friend went to this trek in the month of March, and he said it was good. However, I read that going in the month of June-October is the best time to go. But I went in September because of holiday constraints and it was awesome. I totally loved it. It is completely worthy.

I had visited Meghalaya this month with my spouse and it was a lovely experience we returned with. We had a stay of 8 days and Thrillophilia made everything quite simple for us. Starting from the pickup from Guwahati airport and our stay to our sightseeing tours and breakfasts, everything was just excellent. We had to do no customization as the package already included excellent places like Cherrapunji,Mawlynnong, and Mawphlang. The plus point is Thrillophilia was always available at our reach for every sort of assistance.

Since it was my first trekking tour ever, I was a bit nervous and that’s when one of my friends recommended Thrillophilia. I booked their Shillong trekking package and it made my trip so easy. Trekking on the David Scott memorial trail and finally reaching the Double Decker Living Root Bridge was such a beautiful experience. I also got excellent places to try the authentic local food and they were so tempting. I will recommend Thrillophilia to all solo travelers like me for a totally sorted experience!

A visit to Shillong was long due and I finally got it ticked last month with Thrillophilia’s package. My entire group really enjoyed the tour and the trekking experience to the Living Root Bridge was very amazing. We also hiked to Shillong Peak and the view was simply excellent. The hotels in which we were made to stay at Shillong and Cherrapunji were also very decent with sanitization done. The rooms were spacious and most importantly the bathroom was clean. The staff was also very kind to send us some late-night tea for our gossip sessions. We also received fresh and delicious meals every day of our trip which was again a bonus. Our entire group was so happy and we really made a lot of memories. Thanks to the whole team of Thrillophilia!!

We were provided with the best ever accomodation available in the course of our stay. Thanks a tonne travel masters for making it happen for us.

When it comes to spending a holiday vacation filled with a plethora of activities, then there is absolutely no one better than Thrillophilia. This might seem to be an exaggeration but the fact is no one understands thrill better than them. For this reason, we chose them once more for the trip to Dwaki which is a paradise for adventure seekers. This trip gave us an opportunity to take part in a wide range of adventure activities like zip lining and cliff jumping. Apart from thrilling experience, Thrillophilia also provided us with some of the stunning views of Umngot river which is widely famous for being the cleanest river in Asia. We were provided with some of the best local recipes all through the trip and every small need was very well taken care of by the hospitable staff members. We would love to recommend Thrillophilia as a travel partner for all travellers who wish to experience much more than highlights.

I was planning a visit to Meghalaya with my partner and the “Umiam Lake Boathouse” seemed really romantic to me and I booked it. Just as I could imagine it to be, this tour turned out to be so amazing for both of us. The stay at the boathouse was really special. It had a private bathroom and a furnished kitchen where we could cook our dinner and feel totally at home. We also enjoyed fishing, bird watching, and boating and everything was truly worth the moment that any couple will wish for. We also enjoyed romantic nature walks, clicked a lot of pictures, and had the special Assam tea. The caretaker at our stay was really generous and was ever ready for assistance. Our package also included good breakfast and we were saved from going out every morning in search of food. Overall, it was a really amazing experience and I’ll definitely book with Thrillophilia for my next trip as well!

I had booked a Thrillophilia package for Umiam Lake boathouse stay for my parents’ anniversary. Since I was not accompanying them, I was a bit nervous, but thankfully this package made everything so sorted and easy. The caretaker at the boathouse was such a nice person, I could literally call him and confirm if my parents were alright and he would be explaining to me how my parents were so happy enjoying the views and boating. Thanks to Thrillophilia, it was a perfect anniversary for my parents!

I took a 8 days long trip to Meghalaya with my family a few days back and booking with Thrillophilia helped us a lot. Our check-in, sightseeings, transfers, accommodation, and food was really very spotted with this package. We could visit popular destinations like Umiam Lake, Nohkalikai falls, Mawsmai cave, living root bridges, Seven Sisters’ Falls, and many more. Since the package included permits and tolls we were totally relaxed and just enjoying. Our driver was also very friendly and aware of the local routes. He shared with us many facts about the local culture, traditions, and folklore. He also took us to excellent food outlets for our lunch and dinner. We also got a decent time to stay and enjoy each destination and there was no rush. The hotels we stayed at had very good staff and we also received good breakfast every morning. Overall, it was a very nice family trip and a good first-time experience with Thrillophilia
