Packing guide for your solo trip to Meghalaya

Meghalaya is a beautiful state in northeast India, known for its scenic beauty, culture, and hospitality. If you are planning a solo trip to Meghalaya, here is a packing guide to help you prepare for your trip:


Meghalaya has a pleasant climate throughout the year, but it can get chilly during the winter months. Pack warm clothes like jackets, sweaters, and shawls for the evenings. Pack light cotton clothes for the daytime, including t-shirts, shorts, and comfortable pants.


Meghalaya has a lot of hills, waterfalls, and trekking trails. Pack sturdy and comfortable footwear like hiking boots, sports shoes, or sneakers that can withstand rugged terrain. Don’t forget to pack flip flops or sandals for when you need to relax.

Rain Gear

Meghalaya is one of the wettest regions in the world, and it can rain unexpectedly at any time of the year. Pack a waterproof jacket or poncho, waterproof shoes or sandals, and a small umbrella to keep yourself dry.

Travel essentials

Pack your travel documents, like your passport, visa, and identity proof, along with cash, debit or credit cards, and a travel insurance policy. Also, pack a portable charger, camera, and flashlight.

Personal care items

Pack your personal care items like toiletries, sunscreen, insect repellent, and a first-aid kit. Also, pack any prescription medication that you may need.


Pack a sturdy and comfortable backpack that can hold all your travel essentials. A backpack with multiple compartments and a waterproof cover will be ideal.

Remember to pack light and carry only what you need. You can always buy any essentials that you forgot to pack in Meghalaya’s local markets. With these essential items, you are all set for your solo trip to Meghalaya.
