Allure The Beauty Of Shillong, The Scotland Of India

1. Shillong Peak

 

To visit Shillong Peak, one needs a permit and if you can contact somebody who is in the Indian Air Force, or knows how to enter the place with a permit, nothing would be better than that. This Cantt. The area is the highest peak in Shillong and has got a full clear view of the complete city, which looks magnificent in the evening. Believe me, if you are not surrounded by clouds, you can enjoy the most serene views, even from your hotel room. It is advisable to always carry your  ID proofs or Aadhar card with you.

 

Elephant Falls, is another feather in the cap of our North-Eastern Hill Queen Shillong. Britishers named it so because it looked like an elephant head. But due to an earthquake in the past, a portion of it got distorted. Whereas still, the place has not lost its charm, all you have to do is a trek, so carry your trekking shoes and be prepared to walk.  It is located in the Upper Shillong Region, and can be visited from 9-5 PM all the days, and is 11 km from the city. One can hire a cab or a bus from Police Bazaar.

4. Umiam Lake

 

Umiam Lake also known as Bada Paani is encircled by a thick wall of coniferous trees of the East Khasi Hills. The locals also know it by the name of the Bada Paani. There are a few dotted islands inside this lake, which is formed by the damming of the Umiam River. This Lake is famous for its water sports, kayaking, boating, water cycling, scooting.

If you have plans to visit cherrapunjee, please just don’t say NO. There are living-root-bridges, which are one of a kind, built by the locals over centuries. You will have to trek 3-5 Kms though, passing the clouds. Carry your BSNL sim card while traveling there.
