Updated – March 2020 :: I visited Shillong in the year 2010, along with family. This trip will remain one of the most wonderful and funfilled trips I ever had. Listing in this post some of the things to do in Shillong.
After a long beautiful rejuvenating vacation, I am back to the scorching city of Chennai. Enjoyed the Continuous summer rain that drenched me in Dibrugarh, the shivering cold in Cherrapunji was a refreshing break, followed by shopping spree continued in Guwahati. While the cool breeze in Shillong embraced me, Jorhat – my hometown was draped in the colors of Rongali Bihu. I will give a detailed account later, as of now enjoy some of the snapshots from my Shillong road trip also known as the Scotland of the East 🙂
Our trip started in Guwahati (Assam, India) where we took a shared Tempo towards Shillong, the capital of Meghalaya, about 99 km away. You can also hire a private car or taxi. The journey was not without any adventure as the breaks of the Tempo failed midway. But somehow the driver managed to get us into the city. We found a lovely hotel in the heart of the city and booked for 3 days. Just outside the hotel, we found a place to hire a car that would take us to popular places in Shillong.

Localted near Cherrapunji, it is India’s tallest plunge waterfall. The lookout provides some dramatic views of the Shillong landscape. The area is surrounded by rolling hills which will make you understand why Shillong is called the Scotland of India.
