Guarded by majestic mountains, beautiful waterfalls, luscious lakes, The Garo Hills comes under the Garo-Khasi range in the north eastern state of Meghalaya, largely inhabited by the ‘Garo’ tribe and other tribal people as well. It falls exactly at 260 and 25020’ longitude and 80030’ and 89040’ E latitude. The Garo hills are one of the wettest places of the world and receives an average rainfall of 330cms annually, thus maintaining a windy weather throughout the year, and the monsoon season stays for almost 9months in a year. The Garo Hills are divided into three major ranges, namely, Tura Range, Arbella Range and the Ranggira Range.

There are numerous local spots that can be visited in the Garo Hills, like the Nokrek Peak, Tura Peak, Imilchang Dare, Balpakram, Naphak Lake, Siju Caves, etc.

Imilchang Dare


It is an ecological spot of the West Garo hills district, with a waterfall, very near to the Tura Chokpot road. Though the stream flows through a narrow way, but to our surprise takes a sudden turn to a broader one creating a splendid waterfall and finally leading to a big pool at its bottom, making it a perfect place for fish breeding of variety of colours. This pool attracts a large number of tourists.

Naphak Lake


The Naphak lake is at a distance of 6kms from Sangsak and around 112kms from the headquarter town of Tura. The Naphak Lake is an apt place for both bird watching and those who love to go for fishing.
