Established as the capital of Assam by the British, the hill station of Shillong today serves as the capital of Meghalaya, created in 1972.
Family-friendly places like Mawjymbuin Cave and Meghalaya’s Mawlynnong will thrill your kids. There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Umiam Lake, take a stroll through Police Bazar, take in nature's colorful creations at Lady Hydari Park, and admire the sheer force of Elephant Falls.
