Frequently asked Questions about this tour

Terms and Conditions

As of my last update in January 2022, Meghalaya, like other Indian states, has certain rules and regulations in place for tourists to ensure their safety and preserve the natural and cultural heritage of the region. However, please note that these regulations might have changed since my last update. It's essential to check the latest guidelines from official government websites or local tourism authorities before planning your trip. Here are some general rules and regulations that were applicable to tourists visiting Meghalaya:

  1. Permits: As of my last update, Meghalaya did not require special permits for Indian tourists. However, permits were required for foreign tourists to visit certain areas, especially those close to the international borders. It's advisable to check the latest requirements, especially if you are a foreign national.

  2. Respect Local Customs: Meghalaya is home to diverse indigenous communities, each with its own customs and traditions. It's important to respect the local culture, customs, and traditions of the Khasi, Garo, and other indigenous communities.

  3. Environmental Conservation: Meghalaya is known for its scenic beauty, waterfalls, and lush forests. Tourists are expected to follow responsible tourism practices, such as not littering, avoiding plastic usage, and respecting the natural environment. Many ecologically sensitive areas might have specific guidelines to protect the local flora and fauna.

  4. Restricted Areas: Some areas, especially those inhabited by indigenous communities, might have restricted access for tourists. It's important to respect these restrictions and not venture into areas where tourists are not permitted.

  5. Wildlife Protection: Meghalaya is rich in biodiversity. There are wildlife sanctuaries and national parks in the state. Follow the rules and regulations of these protected areas. Do not disturb or harm wildlife, and avoid purchasing products made from endangered species.

  6. Photography: Always ask for permission before taking photographs of local people. Some communities might consider it disrespectful to be photographed without consent.

  7. Alcohol and Drugs: Meghalaya, like many other states in India, has regulations regarding the consumption of alcohol and drugs. It's important to be aware of and adhere to these regulations.

  8. Safety: While Meghalaya is relatively safe for tourists, it's essential to take standard precautions. Avoid poorly lit or isolated areas at night, take care of your belongings, and follow general safety guidelines.

Remember, rules and regulations can change, and they might vary based on the specific location within Meghalaya. Always check with local authorities or official tourism websites for the most current and detailed information before traveling.
