We had booked a 5 night vacation at Meghalaya, out of which 2 nights were with Pioneer. Those were the best two nights of our entire stay. While it was my first time camping and I was apprehensive, they made sure we were extremely comfortable throughout. We were a group of 4 girls and they made us feel so safe throughout. At Nongriat, we were the only ones staying the night (since it was off season) and Jason, the owner, stayed the night at the camp himself to ensure our safety and comfort. Even at Dawki, Pioneer has the best spot of the river and their tents are clean. The food is served on time and the staff is considerate and helpful. We booked the kayaking activity and they let us have the kayak for hours since no one else needed it. (something that I don't see anywhere else) Overall, if you are visiting Meghalaya - I would suggest that you book Pioneer for sure!

Our stay with Pioneer Advnetures at their camping site in Shnonpedang was a complete treat! We were in contact with Jason and at the camping site Adrian too care of all the arrangements. To enter the Shnonpedang village we paid an entry fee of Rs100 per person and they checked our covid reports along with our Meghalaya tourism e-invite. After that we went straight to the parking lot where we parked our car overnight for Rs80. From there we were escorted by 2 ppl from Pioneer Adventure. We walked down to the river and got into a boat with our luggage to take a 10 min boat ride to our camping sight which was further down the stream on the other side of the river away from the crowds. The setting was absolutely magical. We had some evening some chai & pakora and were then showed our tents. The tents were right on the beach by the river with clean comfortable linen and blankets and a small pillow. These tents are spacious enough for 2 people to sleep comfortably. Would recommend just carrying a small backpack with your essentials. The washrooms are super clean 1 Indian & 1 Western each for Men & Women with mugs, light, toilet paper and dustbins. There are also washbasins with running water around & handwash in the same area. They also have a dinning area where you can have food at your convenience. The variety of food was good you can tell them about ur veg/non veg prefrences along with if you want rice or chapattis. They set up a bonfire in the evening right infront of our tents and we were able to play our music. Then entire experience was amazing. We had doubts if we would get network here but there was good 4G network through out infact the place is so beautiful that you would want to just switch ur phones off and put them away. I would recommend charging ur phones before you get here as there is no way to charge them orjust carry power bank. It gets quite windy at night so its good to keep some clothes to keep you warm. Our morning here was surreal, the views are just gorgeous! Emerald green waters, cliffs on both sides, calming breeze and sun! You have to be there to exprience it. A ton of activities are available there from kayaking, scuba, zip lining, cliff jumping etc But what I loved the most was boating as I could sit back and enjoy the beautiful waters and locals singing while fishing. It totally was an otherworldly experience and I cant recommend it enough! We are so glad we did it and cant thank Adrian and his team enough for making our stay so comfortable.

Camping at d Umngot riverside at dawki with pioneer adventure group tops my list f best travel experiences ever. Right from the picturesque camp location to spacious comfy tents, wholesome tasty meals, clean bathrooms, unending adventurous indulgence, competent n friendly hosts fully committed to our safety n comfort, Pioneer adventure dawki has it all! Stunning clear water surrounded by gigantic cliffs n lush greens made it all enchanting. We enjoyed kayaking, snorkelling, ziplining, cliff jumping n much more. Beach bonfire on a full moon night with music n yummy dinner (freshly roasted fish straight from d river:)) and d fun conversations with our lovely hosts.... Nothing less than an exhilarating moment fr us. Next morning kids were more than happy kayaking all by themselves. I immersed myself into d pristine riverwater, swam all d way across it, jumped off d cliff(didn't bother to keep a count f it). What makes Pioneer adventure group unique is d extremely supportive n professional attitude f Jason n his team. U guys r amazing! Special mention here... Jason took us fr an early morning uphill forest trek to a deep pool amidst rocks, incredible is too mild an adjective fr that beauty. Thankyou so much Pioneer adventure group fr this one f a kind lifetime experience at Dawki fr us. As u said "Save the best fr d last", dawki camping has become favorite part f my northeast trip. I will definitely revisit ur place fr scuba diving and a plunge into d deep green pool u took us to on 10th morning. Highly recommend it to everyone who visits Meghalaya.
