We went to shillong the capital city of Meghalaya for summer vacation. It was our first ever trip to North-East India. The weather was pleasant and the place was pollution free. Shillong is home to the khasitribes.  Their language script is English. shillong is nicknamed the “Scotland of the East” for the beauty of its rolling mountains.We started our sight seeing with the Shillong peak—the highest point in the state with an elevation of 6440 ft. above sea level. Then we went to Lady Hydari Park   Warda Lake  Golf Course and enjoyed t our heart’s content at elephant falls.images
Next day we paid a visit to the Don Bosco Museum which is a place of knowledge sharing on the cultures of the North Eastern Indian states. we went to the Butterfly museum which houses the private collection of the Wank han family and is the only one of its kind in India devoted to moths and butterflies. We also visited the Air force museum  Cathedral of Mary Help of Christians.images (1)
We also visited Cherrapunji the second wettest place on earth situated on a plateau in the East Khasi hills district. People are friendly and non-interfering. They wear a of dress called Jainsem. Life seems to be peaceful here for i didnot see any anxiety  tension or rush anywhere unlike our urban cities. people here speak English so there was no communication problems  They relish rice with fish gravy. It was more like an educational tour for medownload
