A small state in the North Eastern part of India, Meghalaya has its capital in a picturesque and romantic looking town – Shillong. Perched at 1450 meters above sea level, this lovely hill station is surrounded by beauty on all sides – Pine covered hills, flowing streams and water falls which give it a milder climate than tropical India. Shillong derives its name from the legendary “Lei Shyllong” – the God who believed to be residing on the Shillong peak. Shillong is also known as “The Scotland of the East” due to its striking similarity to the Scottish highlands.
Conveniently located in a quiet and peaceful residential area of Shillong, it is away from the city noise and hustle, yet within 7 minute walking distance from the local market, convenience stores, cafes and restaurants.
