On reaching Hotel, we booked his taxi for our next day tour to Cherrapunji in Rs. 2500. Living Root Bridge was not included in the Cherrapunji tour package but we insisted him and he agreed. Next morning he arrived on right time @ 7:30 am and we began to head towards Cherrapunji after some breakfast. Cherrapunji was expected to be the best place in entire journey and so it was. Cherrapunji is known as Sohra in Khasi language. After a long 2 hour drive of 50 kms through heavenly looks all around us, we entered Cherrapunji region. There are no staying facilities there so it is better to have 1 day tour from Shillong or one can pre-book a room at Cherra Resort and enjoy heavenly stay in the completely natural environment. After reaching near Sohra, there was a bridge constructed by British govt. The bridge was previously a hanging bridge. But due to transportation of Coal from the mines in Cherrapunji towards the capital, the bridge was converted into a well constructed one.
When we reached the 2nd point of the journey, I was just lost in the enchanting appearance of the valley. I went near to the railing at the edge of the mountain for heavenly experience. I stayed there and experienced the gift of nature, breeze all around and later went to a small shop for a cup of tea along with my father and Ashok da. The style of making tea was different from our (western) side. They used Amul Mithai Mate instead of milk along with tea, hot water and sugar. Tea was very natural & tasty. Later, we went for next our next visiting place.
On the way, Ashok da shown us the coal mines. He also showed us the place where the song "Ya Ali" of Zubin was shooted. Then on the way to Sohra, we saw Ram Krishna Mission from a very far distance. We also passed through the Cement Factory handled by Meghalaya Govt. On reaching Cherrapunji, Ashok da shown us the Church and Cemetery made by Britishers in 1845 when they arrived in India and converted the Mughals to Christians in Cherrapunji region.
