Three friends from three different states and three days of planning! That's all it took before we decided to kick start another crazy road trip of ours. We just booked the car and flight tickets, go-ogled a few places before landing- leaving rest for the journey to unfold itself as we go.
Two of us landed in Guwahati early morning, while the third one was expected to arrive till afternoon. It was 7AM and drizzling in guwahati, perfect weather to start our day with. City was around 40kms from Airport, we started walking towards the airport exit to look for some local buses or autos for city. It turned out there was no direct way to reach to Panda Ride's office, we changed 2 shared autos, one local bus and walked 1.5 km before we finally managed to reach to our car. Finally we were headed to the Nehru Park to pick our third friend, three of us reunited after almost an year! There was nothing much to see in or around Guwahati, so we decided to head off to Shillong instead after lunch. On our way to Guwahati - Shillong road we saw this beautiful Umiam lake and decided to make it our pit stop. It was an unusually quiet place with only few fishermen glued to their hooks, 3-4 youngsters chilling on one side and a solo traveller who found a perfect place - far away from highway to pitch his camp on lakeside. Slowly the sun started settling down; it's reflection echoing in the still waters of the lake while we stood there mesmerised time lapsing the entire view. Since Shillong was only an hour away from there, we decided to spend more time by the lake before heading off to our Isabella Hostel.
