Nestled away in the hills of Meghalaya, Shillong is quite a town. It offers a break from the heat wave, of course, but what makes it an incredible getaway is how it has retained its wilderness despite becoming increasingly urban every day. Shillong boasts of so, so many water bodies worth your interest, and boy, are they worth it. Be it Ward Lake, Elephant Falls or Umiam Lake – each deserves its own day and its own pan shot. The many museums and galleries (Butterfly Museum, anthropological Museum, Zoological Museum etc) will make your stay an enriching one too!
