Situated in the North Eastern corner of India, it is a state of general scenic beauty. It is inhabited mainly by three tribes: the Khasis, the Jaintias and the Garos. As with most of the North Eastern State, Meghalaya is diversely multicultural, multi-ethnic and multi-religious,with a great mix of traditional and modern lifestyle.
Shillong, famously known as the Scotland of the East, the capital city of Meghalaya ia at an altitude of 4908 feet above sea level. The British were so moved by the magnificent beauty of this place that they set it as a Capital city of Eastern Bengal and Assam.
Shillong enjoys a serene, pleasant atmosphere with its beautiful lakes, lush green mountains, pine forests and exotic orchids, cascading waterfalls which combine together to make it the finest hill station of North East. With pleasant climate all the year round it offers a great escape from the sweltering heat of the plains.
