Awesome place to travel and feel grate to be in North Eastern India, feel the nature.

Ohh .. What should I say about this beautiful place, truly awesome, truly amazing, truly green. Weather was too awesome that is why I choose the month of june so that I can feel the pleasure of monsoon (not the heavy monsoon which usually comes in July otherwise everything would be too wet).
I reached there by taking flight from Kolkata to Guwahati, and than taken the private taxi in 1800 rs to reach Shillong within 2. 5-3 hrs (however share taxis also available directly from airport to Shillong in rs 300-500 and can be easily available). Even the journey on the highway can tell when assam ends and when meghalaya begins.
On the highway close to the Shillong city there one site seeing place called "Umium Lake" that is must see place, nature at its best. We reached Guwahati at 8am and Shillong around 11. 30am, and we have checked in the hotel which we had pre booked through, and direct from the hotel we have started out journey (we stayed in the hotel only for 15mins) by local taxi that also had been pre booked by us in 1500rs to (duration 1. 5-2.
While going to cherrapunji we have witnessed the most awesome weather of our life. There are 6 sightseeing point on cherrapunji. We had returned to our hotel around 8pm.
In the night we went to central point to have some dinner in the form of veg burger as we are veggies and veggies can have some problems there but not so much.
Next day we went to DAWKI VILLAGE (duration 2hrs, taxi fare 2500), on the route to this village there are some sightseeing point like living root bridge, cleanest village of asia "MAWLYNNONG", and indo-bangladesh border.
I have skipped the local city tour because I have only 2 days with me (city things more or less similar but natural beauty is always different in different places), but these 2 days were awesome for me.
Summary: awesome place to visit, north east is really beautiful, people are good, weather is awesome. Must visit

Beauty of nature-Shillong

Scotland of the East! The name itself suggest the beauty of the place. Do visit to connect yourself with nature. Caves, waterfalls they will surely mesmerise you. If you are someone who enjoys monsoon, you surely gotta visit Shillong. Visit Cherapunjee which is about 2 hours drive from Shillong and even reach the India - Bangladesh border in Dawki.
