  • On this tour, you will be driven to Smit town on the outskirts of Shillong, a place which is the hub for Shillong's Khasi tribal culture.

    While Meghalaya is inhabited by 3 central tribes, the Khasis dominate the region in both numbers and power. They are believed to be descendants from Kampuchea in South East Asia and their language originates from Mon-Khmer. Incidentally, the Khasis are one of the few communities of India who practice a matrilineal system of marriage. Under this custom, the children take the name of their mother and the youngest daughter becomes the custodian of the family property. While many believe that Khasi communities continue to practice this ritual, modern inhabitants of the region suggest that now, women dominate families only due to the inactive and indolent nature of the men.

    This tour will allow you to interact with the local people of the city and delve into a unique tribal community that has retained its legacy despite the modernization that surrounds them.
