Day 2

We went to shillong on the next day which took us 5hr because of a huge traffic jam. Normally it takes 3hr if the road stays clear. On the way we stopped at the Umiam Lake. We visited Don Bosco Museum & had our lunch there. Its provids a glimpse of the rich and multi-cultural lifestyles of the indigenous peoples of North East India. The Museum Sky Walk provides an exciting and exhilarating panoramic view of the Pine City of Shillong. We stayed in a homestay in the upper shillong.

Day 5

Our plan was to see shillong sightseeing on the day we came but we couldn't do that so we had our breakfast and went to do the local sightseeing. We planed to visit AirForce Museum, Elephant falls & shillong peak. In the Shillong peak there is a telescope through which the whole city could be seen. I and my cousins wore Khasi cloth which could be rented in the shillong peak. It was just afternoon so we planned to have our lunch in the Police Bazar & to explore the local life. We bought some local fruits from the bazar & then returned back to our stay.
