Jakrem Hot Springs is an off-beat destination in Meghalaya.
The Springs, are located about 64 km from Shillong, is the perfect place to relax, detoxify, and have some fun.
But wait, there’s more. Jakrem has slowly developed into a health resort, attracting people from far and wide to take a dip in the hot springs and spend some time rejuvenating themselves. The best part? There are bathing compartments built for the public. Just imagine soaking in the hot spring and letting your troubles melt away. Pure bliss!
Okay, we won’t lie to you, Jakrem is not the easiest place to get to, but it’s definitely worth the effort. You can hire a local taxi or opt for the local bus to get there. The road to Jakrem is surely beautiful, with a mountain-clad scenery around, making it a great place for nature photographers to click some amazing shots. However, we advise travelers to visit Jakrem early in the day so they can return to Shillong by evening safely.
Once you’re there, you’ll be amazed by the facility wherein the hot water is distributed through pipes to various bath rooms where you can take a shower in privacy. The water is known to be miraculous as it treats quite some ailments and known to heal body aches and relax the muscles. But hey, don’t just take our word for it, give it a try yourself!
Now, let’s talk about food. You can have lunch or food in Mawsynram as this place is not famous for its food shops. But who needs food when you have the healing powers of the hot springs, right?
For those of you who have just a few days in Meghalaya, Jakrem might not be a great option, as Meghalaya has many other exotic locations for tourists. But for those who have the time, we highly recommend giving Jakrem a chance.
In conclusion, Jakrem Hot Springs is a must-visit destination for anyone traveling to Meghalaya. Just remember to bring a swimsuit, a camera, and an open mind, and let the hot springs work their magic. Happy travels!
