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 Umananda

The island offers a great view of itself from the city. A few makeshift shops and tea stalls are available for the tourists, but not enough to burn an appetite asking for a lunch. The place is home to a rare species of mammals called the Golden Langurs. The island is named after a temple (built by the Ahom Kingdom) of Lord Shiva and his wife, as per the Hindu Mythology. Do take a walk through the island, and you would realize how small it actually is. Offerings to the deity (Prasada), maybe taken if you wish so.
