Why to visit Jaintia Hills

It is part of the Patkai hill range in Meghalaya, which stretches over the Indo-Myanmar border. A comparatively smaller hill area as compared to the Khasi and Garo Hills, the Jaintia Hills nonetheless delights tourists with its beautiful lakes and rich flora. The administrative capital of the region, Jowai, is the most developed town in the area and the only point of contact with other towns outside of the hills. The East Jaintia Hills and the West Jaintia Hills are the two districts that make up the Jaintia Hills. The lovely town of Nartiang is also located in these interesting Jaintia hills, where the ruins of the Jaintia King's Summer Palace may be found. The Nartiang Monoliths, a massive collection of gigantic stones dating back to the Stone Age, are also located here.

Special Tip

Within the region, there are no lodging alternatives so you can have a good camping near by.
