The Monsoon is a great time to travel and visit Meghalaya, if you are patient, accepting and open.

Umbrella's and Boots are highly recommended

MaplePine Farm is also great in the monsoon, but you do have to be ready for some adventure to experience its beauty, maybe  a wade in the river, a walk along the river bank if it is high.  If you are not up for this, best to visit us in the Spring, Fall or Winter

Cultural Pursuits is now concentrating on our property outside of Shillong,  we do continue to offer customized trips, organized, based on mutual understanding between us and the client.
