Shillong is the capital of Meghalaya and a popular hill tourist spot in north east India.

It is known as the “Scotland of the East”.

This pine tree-encased city is home to the legendary idol Lei Shyllong. Not only is Shillong known for its weather and picturesque locations, but it’s also home to the descendants of the Khyrim, Mylliem, Maharam, Mallaisohmat, Bhowal and Langrim tribes.

But the real reason you’ll want to visit is for the waterfall sightings, mountain peaks, crystal clear lakes, golf courses, cafes, and museums.

And let’s not forget, Shillong acts as the gateway to Meghalaya, the state known for heavy rainfalls, caving, tallest waterfalls, beautiful landscapes, and amazing people and culture.

But perhaps the most notable feature of Shillong is its jovial people and westernized culture, giving the city a youthful vibe. And for all you music lovers out there, Shillong is known as the music capital of India with many prominent musicians hailing from this city and events happening year-round. So book your tickets, and don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes!
