This gem of land found and run by Ian Vincent and Sheela is the best way to have your first Meghalayan experience. Umtrew river is one of the best places to kayak in India, and even learn the basics of kayaking. The river's configuration is almost unbelievable as to how it creates the perfect rapids for professional kayakers and still water pools or eddy's, for beginners. You can learn the basics of kayaking here at Umtrew river with Mr Vincent who has been a global kayaker and won many accolades.
You can free trek to interesting places in Kyrdem Kulai and find stunning views that open up to Meghalayan landscapes overlooking valleys and rivers. The best way to find interesting spots is conversations with the locals who do it on a daily basis as a routine and the occasional help of internet and Google maps if you have the network for it. Ask the locals for some good restaurants for culinary lip smacks along the way.
Right next to the campsite is the tea garden. You can order your first cup of tea or coffee and head for a morning walk in the tea garden to kick start your day in the most refreshing way possible. You can ask the tea farmers here how they go about their plantation process and how to know your tea for a better purchase when you head back home.
