Enter Meghalaya’s Eden, a land of rare species and unique landscapes…

Let the wildest corners of Meghalaya embrace you at Nokrek, a land of myths and wild beasts. Designated a biosphere reserve in 2009, Nokrek encapsulates the allure of the Garo Hills and The Daribokgre Trek is one of the best ways to soak in this untamed beauty. At the beginning of this 16-km route, you will first traverse through the lush countryside dotted with thick groves, plantations, and tidy villages before entering the pristine forest. Nokrek is also the highest point in the Garo Hills you will be guaranteed some panoramic views of the surrounding ranges as you continue your journey on this vivid trail.

A place of interest on the fringes of the reserve is Chandigre Village, which includes a small resort featuring traditional huts. The village is surrounded by tea gardens and coffee plantations and is an ideal place for those who want to sample a slice of the Garo lifestyle. Chandigre is a good base to explore Nokrek. The nearby Rongbang Dare waterfalls provide an impressive sight. Nokrek is the best place to catch glimpses of the wonderful Hoolock gibbon, a primate found in these ranges. Their incredible calls resonate from the canopies and provide a primaeval soundtrack to your excursion. Some of the largest Asiatic elephant herds in the country roam about this biosphere reserve and Nokrek is also home to the planet’s oldest citrus fruit species.
