Shillong

Bodies of Water · Waterfalls · Landmarks
Established as the capital of Assam by the British, the hill station of Shillong today serves as the capital of Meghalaya, created in 1972. Since then, development has made the "Scotland of the East" into a fairly plain Indian town, although some colonial-era architectural highlights still shine through. As with other hill stations, the climate here remains noticeably more temperate than at lower elevations, and most Shillong itineraries focus on the verdant valleys and forested hillsides--the main beneficiaries of the cool mountain air and the monsoon rains. In the build up to your vacation in Shillong, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our India tour builder.
