Hi, everyone this is my first blog where i want share my experince while exploring the scenic beauty of Meghalaya. As the name indicate the Megh: cloud Alaya: Place it is not ironic to say that it is true place of clouds. Megahlaya is the northeast state of India loacated in Khasi hills in HImalyan mountains range. With major cities like Shillong, Cherapunji (wettest land on earth) is tourist destination. Shillong have its airport with limited flight availablity form delhi, culcutta. nearest railway station is Guwahati (Assam). In the end of April 2010, i have planned to visit the north east part of India with my Friends. on my way to Guwahati from delhi (2 hr) flight i have enjoyed the view of Himalyan snow covered mountains. the first we spent exploring Guwahati, the mian attractions were: Hadimba temple, Balaji Temple, Brahmaputra river and many more places. To reach Shillong we hired a taxi from Guwahati, which took 4 hrs ride on the highway to reach shillong. It was raining most of the time till we reach, which makes the environment more refreshing. it was seems that we are really approching the wettest land on earth. The shillong culture is mainly based on christian religion. the main attraction of Shillong are Shillong Peak View, Elephant Falls, Old Church, market. Th places around shillong are Seven sisters falls, Nokhalikai Fall, Masamai Cave, Thangkharang park (at this park we got banagladesh network on our cellphone). With all this i am going to finish my blog. Enjoy the pictures and if your are in india and planning to visit some new place do visit Meghalaya. for any quirey mail me
