The north eastern side of the country, also known as the seven sister states (Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura and Meghalaya) is one of the most scenic places in the country one can find. Lush green fields, rich flora and fauna in the dense jungles along with the rich cultural heritage of the place are just some of the offerings to the traveller in you.
Our trip was a short one, from Guwahati, Assam to Shillong, Meghalaya. From Shillong, we went to Cherrapunji and then went on to Kaziranga National Park. We continued to Pobitora National Park, and then back to Guwahati for local sightseeing. A total of 7 days were spent for the trip. Details follow below.
We landed at Guwahati airport and made our way towards Shillong immediately. The road is scenic and immensely beautiful. Long, winding and lush greenery on its sides.
Before entering Shillong on the same route, one shall come across Lake Umiam, or Barapani.
