Scotland Of India - Shillong

Plan Your Tour
By Mukti Sharma

Shillong - The Scotland of India. It's a place of heavenly beauty and truly has a serenity of heaven. The picturesque landscape of Shillong is sure to take ones breath away. The greenery, the sylvan forest, the enchanting beauty of the hills, and the quaint pace of life of the people there seems to transport the visitor to another place far away from the fast pace life of the city.

I would suggest a visit to this beautiful city to any traveler not only because of the beautiful landscape but also because of the hospitable nature of the people here. The hospitality of the people was so avid once I reached Gangtok. And then there were so many places to see in Gangtok like the Nathu La Pass, Tosmgo Lake and the Mountanieering Institiute. It is fascinating to come to know the diverse tribes that co-exist here, their different cultures and way of living. Indeed Shillong and Gangtok has taken a lot from neighbouring countries likeNepal and Bhutan in the way of Culture. The vibrancy and vigor of their life is reflected in their extremely created handiwork of various kinds. My Visit to Shillong was truly a memorable one filled with wonderful memories.

As I was watching all this pristine beauty, my heart was making plans to see other Hill Stations like Darjeeling, the Himalayan Toy Train there, Tiger Hill and the Ghoom Buddhist Monastry. But then Munnar,Ooty and Kodaikanal didin't seem to be far away.
