  • Shillong, the capital of Meghalaya and also, the district headquarters of the East Khasi Hills District, is situated at an altitude of 1496m (mean) above mean sea level. This beautiful hill station has a bracing climate throughout the year, and its natural beauty and vicinity has been the subject of awe and admiration by poets, tourists and visitors alike. Shillong has been the seat of governance since the consolidation of the British administration in this part of our country more than a century ago. It was a favourite among the English, and hence, the influence on the local culture still lingers on. The city is well connected by road and is the hub for tourism, education and trade among the north -eastern states of India. A wide array of scenic locations, crisp cold pine scented air, rolling cascades & brooks, avenues & boulevards, and a resemblence to Scottish lochs rightly earns it the sobriquet- Scotland of the East.
