The deep valleys and enchanting hills also ensure that the ‘abode of clouds’ never fails to sweep you off your feet, making you fall in love with its raw natural beauty.
Shillong, the capital of Meghalaya, is awash with history and tradition and is one of the best places to purchase traditional handloom shawls. Rock music lovers will want to give this city a second look as it is said to be the ‘rock capital of India’ which the people of Shillong are incredibly proud of. You will find inspired music cafes all across the city and music Festival throughout the year.
Not far from here lies Cherrapunji, a place that finds its name in the Guinness Book of World Records for having witnessed as much as 26.5m of rain in a single year. Both Shillong and Cherrapunji are blessed with picturesque landscapes, spectacular waterfalls, and majestic mountain views.
Meghalaya also offers proof of the beauty and diversity of the Indian culture. In a society that is used to being dominated by men, Meghalaya stands out with its matrilineal heritage, which governs ancestral inheritance and lineage from mother to daughter.
