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 Lakhimpur

There's a highway that takes you all the way to Tezpur. If you want to proceed ahead into Arunachal Pradesh (if you're visiting Itanagar, Ziro or Tawang), you need to apply for the Inner Line Permit here. We would've loved to set camp for the night in Itanagar, but we reached Tezpur late afternoon, and the permit would be issued only in the evening. We decided to instead take the road along the Assam-A.P border to Lakhimpur, the next big town. Unfortunately, it started raining when the moon came out, and the bike began slipping on the wet, gravel-filled roads. We stayed for the night in Banderdewa, a border town.
