The name Meghalaya means ˜abode of clouds" in Sanskrit. It is also known as the Scotland of the East. Meghalaya Tourism has abundant rainfall and sunshine around the year and is considered to be one of the richest botanical habitats in Asia. The state has several valleys, highland plateaus and lush green hills and is speckled with big waterfalls. The state has an international border with Bangladesh and also borders Assam. Meghalaya is best visited during the winter months of November to February. This is when it is ideal for sightseeing as rain doesn't play spoilsport and the scorching sun doesn't take away all your energy.

Very polite and humble Tour operator. The most cost effective travels I could find for north east tour. Gave a very detailed guidance on how to plan the trip and suggested the necessary changes. Highly recommended because of simplicity and professional approach in each and every step. Though we couldn't visit north east due to lockdown, can't wait until the restrictions are lifted⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ By Rashmi Dutta
We had the best experience with nestravels on our trip to Madhya Pradesh recently Everything was well managed and organized. Moreover they offered surprises after surprises like upgrading our Hotel rooms to vehicles. I highly recommend Nestravels.⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ By 2itchyfeets
North East Sojourn Travels (NEST) is the best!!! We went to Nagaland, Assam and Arunachal for 10 days with NEST. Ours was not a usual trip and it involved a lot of off-roading, remote areas and long travels. Most of the areas we visited had limited phone networks, forget about the internet. When you are on such a trip, you get many hurdles along the way. We got delayed by a day due to a landslide along the way and once our car broke down. But NEST ensured a smooth and comfortable journey even on the treacherous roads. During that trip, we visited the remotest villages of Nagaland, attended a ceremony in a Monastery and get to know to meet Tai Phake Tribe, visited the famous Parshuram Kund, get to see the first sun rays that enters India in Dong Village of Arunachal, went up to the last eastern village of India and see China border, went till Anini Village and get to meet Idu Mishmi tribe there. All of these experiences were flawless and memorable because of the way NEST organised this trip. Every day the owner of the company Mr Debjyoti would call us, our stay owners and our driver to ensure a smooth trip for us. In short, NEST made a difficult trip, smooth for us. We would love to cover other parts of Arunachal with NEST soon.⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ By Pramiti Sarma

But then the moment I had my plans made by them with all the details ,I was sure that I choose the right place. I really appreciate their professionalism . Indeed I had a great holiday. I would like to recommend you for your future plans .
