Meghalaya, literally “the Abode of the Clouds” is also known as the “Scotland of the East”. Obviously therefore, we expected a trip through the clouds, beneath the cliffs, over the lakes, along the waterfalls and across the valleys. But Meghalaya revealed a few more secrets to us in the 4 days that we stayed there.
We were staying in Shillong and had just one day to soak up the rest of Meghalaya. We knew that it was next to impossible to cram everything in a day, so we left some of the places out, even some notable ones like Cherrapunjee and Mawsynram. However, even then we had our hands full. Therefore, we started out early on the day of our sojourn.
