Shillong Tourism - The Mini London


Shilong Meghalaya

Shillong is undoubtedly a tourist's delight. Nature exists nowhere as in Shillong. This lesser known hill station is simply magical.

Hooked at a height of 1,496 meters, Shillong is fondly known as the 'Scotland of East'. Nature has been partial when it comes to Shillong. Pine trees, waterfalls, mountain streams, lakes and gorges come together to make Shillong a paradise for nature lovers.

Shillong, the capital city of Meghalaya, has grown tremendously in terms of everything – culture, size, beliefs, traditions and economy.
