Fairytale of the woods,
Sparkles on the silver springs,
While the raw breeze sings,
Along the root bridges that swing.
For everything that held you back, takes a wing, go fly....
Meghalaya and its seamless beauty!
Here is my short story about Meghalaya memories. I travelled to Meghalaya, my first north east trip in the month of November. I am still hanging by those every moments spent.
The travel story began with my friend's wedding in Assam and then to explore Meghalaya. There are lot of places to see, and i had my best 3 days.
Post my friend's wedding in Assam, I did visit Kamakhya temple in Assam and is very grateful to see the god power.
I took a taxi to Shillong, wow when i used to hear this name while i was little, i had kind of curiosity to be there once. And the day arrived... I reached Shillong around 8 PM and just went straight to sleep after dinner because i had to be all fresh ready with energy for next day. I had hired a taxi for my 2 days trip. Travel time from Guwahati to Shillong - 3 hours.
The next day started at 8 am, the driver was more like a guide and i had shared my list of places i wanted to visit and he said, "chalo madam, me aaapko saare places acche time pe le jayega, breakfast bhi full view ke sath.. chalo chalo". I was like okay, did he mean that holding maggi with the mountain view? Yay, lets go.
By the way, i found the driver after a lot struggle in Shillong roads, somehow i interacted with this driver called "Ram Singh" Driver Contact - Ram Singh - 9862232964 / 8787783078, who is Shillong driver local driver and very humble. He is very chill and plays really good Punjabi songs :P
Charges: Rs 3500 per day (including petrol)
The way to Cherrapunji in the morning was amazing, i felt the real meghalaya, abode of the clouds!
