Meghalaya- with its cotton clouds heaped just above your heads, carpets of green, rich valley floors and glistening forest glades – all enveloped in rolling mists over its dramatic cliffs, spectacular mountains and primaeval natural heritage – offers a perfect runway to launch the ‘thrill-seekers’ and ‘slow-life enthusiasts’ collectively into their most ‘utopian’ fantasies.

Conceived to promote and position Meghalaya as a sustainable tourism hotspot for high value, low carbon footprint travellers in India and around the world, The Meghalayan Age 2020 is curated and crafted by packaging its natural and heritage capital into various unique tourism products and authentic experiential offerings for the new age travellers.

One of the major highlights will be the Hot Air Balloon Rides, allowing you to soak in the breathtaking terrain from above as you navigate between the clouds. Adrenaline junkies will get a chance to explore the famous natural labyrinths of Meghalaya as part of expeditions to the world’s longest cave systems – known for their complex maze of horizontal and vertical passages sculpted by underground waterways and home to otherworldly speleothems, ancient species, fossils, and unchartered eco-systems.

The festival also offers expertly curated experiential tours to many of its natural spots- crystal clear pools for river scuba diving, invigorating treks, and a glimpse of its rural life, which has set a much-needed example of sustainability and harmony with nature.

The Meghalayan Age 2020 will also offer a unique Glamping experience – with a ritzy tented colony for the premium outdoor aficionados and let them experience the unadulterated ‘Meghalayan’ way of life.

The festival will also host its invitees in an extraordinarily luxurious tented colony-nestled in the lush surroundings- to let them experience the unadulterated ‘Meghalayan’ way of life. The setting allows them to mingle with the local tribal communities under the subtle night glow of massive balloons tethered to the ground for the public evenings. The audience can tuck into local cuisines, engage in interesting conversations and shop heirlooms from the rural and food bazaar- set up exclusively for the event.

True to the ‘Meghalayan’ – a new age in the history of the earth – determined from a geological evidence in the Mawmluh cave in the Meghalaya, The Meghalayan Age Festival 2020 promises to usher in a different chapter for the new age travellers of India and the World.
