A NORTHEAST ODYSSEY
Experience nature, adventure, wildlife, food, and culture in Meghalaya and Assam
With the evolution of women’s active wear, female adventurers worldwide have been empowered to face obstacles head-on & participate in adrenaline-gushing events.
The concept of sportswear for women is relatively new. Since women, as a gender, have been always subdued from going out and exploring, that is why women’s active wear have been innovated very later.
However, GenX has seen the upliftment of adventure women and hence women sport clothes and ladies’ outdoor apparels slowly started to get fashioned from the concept of men’s clothing.
Before embarking on the trails of the eastern Himalayas, we had made one thing clear, we would explore all the natural wonders and picturesque sites that Meghalaya - our destination in the North-East, presented.
But why in the North-east, many of our friends had asked before we had started preparing for the tour?
North-East India is an abode of natural wonders - with countless flora and fauna thriving in the region. The climate is superb for traveling during peak seasons, Meghalaya being the abode of clouds where you can touch them and get lost within the cloud-laden sky. It is also the land of festivals - the Hornbill festival, Ziro and Dree festivals, Saga Dawa festivals, etc.
