Translated as ‘The Abode of Clouds’, it would be gross injustice if I attempt to rename it.
However, it had so much more to offer…..
One can reach Meghalaya in different ways but I chose to book an early morning flight to Guwahati and thereafter take the road to Shillong, capital of Meghalaya. This, also, happens to be the most preferred route. Shillong airport in Umroi does not witness a lot of flights and not regularly either. I did little research, unlike my other tours which were thoroughly planned. On arrival, I decided to take a taxi to Shillong, shared taxi, the prices of which range from the type of vehicle you choose. It is an approximately three-hour journey to Shillong and the temperature dips as we leave Guwahati. The ride just kept getting better and better as I entered Shillong.
