Journey date : 2nd April 2017 – 6th April 2017
Caution : It’s a very long post but I’ve added everything possible in this post, all the information you may require from places to see, places to stay or eat or the very important “commute within Meghalaya.”
About Meghalaya –
The name – Megh means cloud and alay means home.(I think I’m gonna nickname my daughter alay in the future :P)
Where should I begin to describe this place – I’m at a loss of words.
Abode of the clouds, the Scotland of the east, the land of waterfalls, the queen of hills
– all these names start to make sense as you embark on a three hour road journey from Guwahati Airport, maneuvering your way up the pine covered hills, dotted with pretty lakes and picturisque landscapes, treating your eyes to a green sight that will remain with you for the most part of your life.
Beautiful and breathtaking! But that’s an understatement.
If I could use a word or two to describe Meghalaya, I would say “Green” and “White”.
The lush green rolling hills dotted with pine trees, the thick waves of mists that appear out of nowhere leaving you spell bound, the clouds, the rains, the beautiful roads, the numerous waterfalls you see as you drive through the roads, those old Khasi villages, the kind and warm hearted smiles of the Khasi villagers – what’s there to dislike this place?
