HolidayIQ Traveller Ismat Hussain Choudhary from Guwahati shares, “Umiam Lake is around 15-16 km from Shillong. It is also known as Barapani. It was created because of the dam for the Hydel Project, and was firstly built in the North Eastern part of India. The scenery is beautiful and the weather is always pleasant. There are facilities like boat riding, kayaking, scooting for the adventure lovers. It can be visited throughout the year. You can even see people selling fishes.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Sushil Kannan says, “It is said the path to heavens is rough. True! When you want to go to Bomdila, the travel from Guwahati to Bomdila is rough and tough. But once you reach this place you forget all the troubles, bad road, pathetic food etc.Fond of Buddhism or not, the monasteries give you so much mental peace that you would always return back to work fresh with good and heavenly thoughts.Sight of Chinese infrastructure across the horizon might pain some but the mountain amazes you more than anything else. But don't forget that these are tough places to stay and our soldiers stay in these tough conditions to take care of all of us.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Himanshu Gupta says, “Neermahal is a beautiful palace situated amidst a lake. It resembles the Jal Mahal in Jaipur. You need to take a ferry or a motor boat to reach the palace. Once you reach there, you can enjoy the view from its top, which is mesmerising and breathtaking. It is very picturesque and a great place for photography. There is a sound show that takes place every evening.”

4. No Historical Sites Either

HolidayIQ Traveller Shouvik Chowdhury says, “It was an awesome trip to the place that falls on the Silk Route - Zuluk. The silk route bends, clear peaks, Kanchenjunga and the snowfall made my trip to Zuluk a mesmerising one!” Adds HolidayIQ Traveller Avijit Maji says, “September to February is the best time to visit Zuluk because the weather is beautiful and you can watch the amazing sunrise.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Megha Goel says, “Mahjong is one of the best casinos in India opened at The Mayfair. The name of the casino comes from the name of a famous game played in China. The casino has a different ambience all together. Blackjack and poker lovers will have a blast. It is open 24 hours. I totally enjoyed the live performances too. The entrance fee is Rs. 3000. Children below 18 are not allowed.”
