Meghalaya’s capital, Shillong is quaint hill-station flanked by pine forests and a few hundred waterfalls scattered across the charming landscape. Also referred to as the Scotland of the East, Shillong is replete with remnants of its British legacy, that can be seen in its architecture and the cuisine found on most menus. The beautiful Umiam, is a manmade lake and locally known as Barapani, it’s one of Shillong’s most popular places to visit. The Wards Lake is another artificial creation and tourists flock to this destination mainly for the boat rides. The multitude of waterfalls crowding the city - Sweet, Bishop and Beadon, and Elephant falls play a significant role in Shillong’s tourism. The Don Bosco Centre of Indigenous Cultures, is a cultural repository for all the seven Northeastern states, boasting of everything from weapons to rare photographs. To witness a magnificent view of the entire city, the Shillong Peak at 1695 msl fanning out over the town is your best bet. While touring Shillong, don’t forget to incorporate the beautiful Golf Course, that is perched at an elevation of 5200ft.

About Moirang

Our first stop was the Loktak lake, which is the largest freshwater lake in North East India. It is located in Moirang, an hour's drive from Imphal, and is home to huge masses of floating phumdis, which are vegetation in various states of decomposition. Which basically means, the lake is dotted with hundreds of small floating islands, the largest of which is is Keibul Lamjao National Park, home to the Sangai deer. A government official who supervises the tourist activity in the area told us that rampant tourism and fishing activities have caused a depletion in the green cover, but serious efforts are on to preserve this biological wonder. I had always thought such exotic locations could be found only on foreign countries. And to have one in our own country and not even know about it! Two of the largest Phumdis's Sendra and Phubala, offer boarding and dining facilities to the tourists. Imagine living on a floating island of weeds! We immediately cancelled our plan to return back to Imphal that night and stayed on at the Sendra Tourist Home. We stayed up till late in the night, watching the night descend on the peaceful waters, the stars playing hide and seek with their reflections and listening to the calls of the birds and animals.
