Answers to travel information on
Shillong in Meghalaya
Shillong is one of the Best Hill Station of the Country. It has Lakes, Water Falls,Museums, Parks, Excellent Eduactional Institutions, Churches and of course scenic beauty - British credited it as, 'Scotland of the East'.
Local people are well eduacted and well mannered and cultured. You can be very comfortable with English, Khasi, Bengali, Hindi, Nepali languages.
It's a paradise for Non Veg Food especially Chinese, Tibetian and also local specialities like Jado.
You must try Bali & Bashao with other available Drinks(You get good staff!).
People are fond of good Music (Police Bazar - you can buy some excellent CDs of Western).
You can stay at Hotel Pinewood or can have many options of Budget Hotels in and around Police Bazar.
Hire a Cab for local site seeing as well asd for a trip to Cherapunjee, Umiam Lake (Barapani). Please do not smoke in the cab.
My recommendation will be to visit either in Spring & Autamn.
Shillongites are open and hearty. Enjoy your trip.Report Abuse
You can visit Shillong round the year except rainy season. You may stay at Orchid Lake Resort, it is a beautiful Govt. owned resortsituated on the banks of Umium lake.Report Abuse
Shillong is beautiful, especially if you visit Cherapunjee, which has a landscape of rolling green hills, much like in Scotland.
There are beautiful waterfalls and awesome lakes particularly the Umian lake 13 Kms. just before you enter Shillong town as you climb from Guwahati.
No wonder the British appropriately described Shillong as Scotland of the East.
Shillong, I am sure will be excellent during winter, as the weather would be perfect to enjoy the Sun.
But be discrete when choosing where you stay particularly if you are a couple without kids. In my opinion Hotel Centre Point is best.Report Abuse
Hi, if you are willing to brave the cold, then December is a great time to visit Shillong. Since it doesn't snow here during the winter months, you'll be spared the worst of the cold. As akdcts says above, you'll get lovely skies and crisp weather

The tourist season lasts throughout the year except the monsoon months. December will be cold, not intolerably so, and you will probably get clear skies and lovely crisp weather. Go for it!Report Abuse
