A video on few of the places that we will visit

  • It’s a backpacking trip - you travel with a budget, stay in hostels, homestays or budget hotels with other travellers coming from different parts of the world, you explore the culture of North East, explore the beautiful town of Shillong - either by walk or by local transport, try the different local food, drink different beers, enjoy their nightlife and above all making memories for life.

  • An experience that will leave you breathless literally! (Quite a few treks) 

  • Couples are welcome but keep note you would be staying in backpack hostel’s where you would be staying in dorms shared by other people + bathrooms will be shared too if this arrangement does not work for you we can book a private room for you but that further extends the budget. 

  • The trip cost is 35,000 INR Inclusive of GST

  • The trip can be customized as per your dates, budget. Please reach out to the email or number mentioned.
