The NER is home to the Himalayas and dense forests, so warm clothing is recommended. One can always find sweaters, gloves and mufflers being sold here if one does not want to carry them. Considering the fact that Meghalaya receives the highest rainfall in the country, raincoats and umbrellas are a necessity to those travelling here. The climate here is rather cold. Summers are cool and winters are cold. The rainfall keeps the temperatures on a lower side of the scale. This makes layering up one of the best options for clothing. Medication may not be easily available, so it is best to carry all medication in ample quantities, especially all anti-allergic medication such as EpiPen’s.
Fast internet is probably a fantasy in remote areas in North East India, however good connectivity is available in the cities. One may want to gear up for the trip accordingly.
