Get aroundEdit

SeeEdit

  • Haflong Lake. Nestled in the forests and mountains, the lake is particularly beautiful after the rainy season.    
  • 1 Jatinga. The nearby village of Jatinga is popularly known as the place where multiple species of birds mysteriously "commit suicide", peaking at the end of the monsoon. Ornithologists have since found that the birds don't commit suicide but are killed by becoming disoriented during the dark, foggy and windy night sky. The birds are attracted to the lights of the cities and are hit with bamboo poles by villagers believing that spirits from the sky are terrorising them. Despite this, the suicide myth is still popularly believed.
