Shillong & The Pineapples

Travel to Shillong :December'2008
Shillong is capital of the Indian state of Meghalaya (Abode of clouds). Shillong is also know as Scotland of the East and indeed it is. Once in your life time do visit shillong and you will realize why it is called Scotland of the East.
There were some picturesque moments I caught up whilst I was in Shillong in December,2008.


Elephant Falls, Shillong. Though,the real beauty of elephant falls can best be seen during the rainy season. After all, Meghalya as the name signifies, “abode of clouds”.

    “Abode of Clouds” – sounds heavenly! I suppose this is a high-altitude area like Ladakh, too? 🙂


    1. Megh+Alaya= Megh means clouds. Worlds’ two most wet places in the the world Mawsynram and Cherrapunjee are in this state. It rains so much here because of the geographic structure of Garo Khasi Hills, they trap the clouds and hence the rain.

      Shillong is around 5000 feet; Ladakh is way higher.

    NorthEast India is epitome of natural surroundings, its so green and pristine and weather is also amazing.

    When in Northeast, Shillong is one place you should not Miss. Shillong is also enroute ot Cherrapunjee, the world’s most wet place.

    Whenever, I wish to have a pineapple, the pineapple I ate in Shillong crosses my mind and there is no matching that.
