Established as the capital of Assam by the British, the hill station of Shillong today serves as the capital of Meghalaya, created in 1972.
Attractions like Mawjymbuin Cave and Meghalaya’s Mawlynnong make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with these side-trips from Shillong: Cherrapunjee (Wah Kaba Falls, Mawsmai Cave, & more). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Don Bosco Centre for Indigenous Cultures, explore the activities along Umiam Lake, take a stroll through Police Bazar, and take in the dramatic scenery at Elephant Falls.
