Shillong

— 3 nights
Established as the capital of Assam by the British, the hill station of Shillong today serves as the capital of Meghalaya, created in 1972.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Air Force Museum and Don Bosco Centre for Indigenous Cultures. All Saints Church and The Grand Madina Masjid will appeal to history buffs. When in Shillong, make a side trip to see David Scott Trail in Mawphlang, approximately Mawphlang away. And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Mawphlang Sacred Forest, explore the activities along Umiam Lake, take in the dramatic scenery at Elephant Falls, and stop by Police Bazar.

Plan my Shillong trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

New Delhi to Shillong is an approximately 7.5-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and taxi. Traveling from New Delhi in January, you will find days in Shillong are somewhat warmer (29°C), and nights are about the same (11°C). Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Sun) to allow time to drive to Mawlynnong.

Waterfalls · Bodies of Water · Caves
A hilly and mountainous state with valleys and highland plateaus, Meghalaya offers a treat for nature lovers. A holiday in Meghalaya usually involves some combination of trekking, mountaineering, river canyoning, and swimming, plus a tour of ethnic villages and sampling of local cuisine. Visit the wettest place on earth, where subtropical forests hide living root bridges, impressive waterfalls, spectacular rock formations, and long cave systems. Sacred groves, lakes, and national parks harbor abundant wildlife, while year-round ethnic festivals and fairs keep alive traditional lifestyles.
