52. Around Shillong

Meghalaya is a beautiful State and its capital Shillong a vibrant city. It is very easily approachable from Guwahati, the largest city of the North East. A good road connects Shillong to the Guwahati Airport and the travelling time is just two hours. Shortly before entering Shillong, one reaches the beautiful Umiam lake around which there are several decent places for stay. In Shillong itself, there is another beautiful lake in the heart of the town, called the Shillong lake. Among the places to see is an old church, a golf course and the Don Bosco Museum. The museum is the treasure trove of information on the life and culture of the North East. It must be one of the best museums of its type in the country.
