Shillong

Call For a Friend > Extracts


We found Shillong not to be a big city. We had almost walked on all the roads leading to every direction which was near our hotel and in that process had covered the major tourist spot by walking only. Botanical garden, Ward’s lake. , States museum, Cathedral of Mary help of Christian church, Crinoline falls, Lady Hydri park, Golf course, All the Saints church, everyplace we explored on foot. I wonder whether the city was small or we were filled with some kind of extra energy that we travelled so much as pedestrians.

We hired a taxi to visit Cherrapunji. The place is about sixty kilometers away from Shillong, and is among one of the rainiest places of the country. It appeared nature had adorned Cherrapunji with matchless beauty. We could see valleys, mountains, caves, falls, everything at the same place. Fascinated by the Mawsami cave, we moved ahead to adore more beauty of the Mother Nature in the form of seven sisters’ fall, Thangkharang park etc.

On the last day of our Shillong trip we decided to visit ‘Umiam Lake’, the only place left for us to explore. Also called ‘Bara Paani’, the lake displays a beautiful site of river water flowing silently; across which mountains appear to be standing in a quite manner, enjoying themselves being a part of such a lovely scenery.
