Shillong City


A three hour uphill from Guwahati takes you to Shilong the capital of the state which lies at a height of 1,496 mtrs. Above sea levels Enroute you will pass first the halfway mandatory stop at nongpoh where you can savor a cup of tea while watching the flow of traffic. Pretty women behind small stalls sell pineapples and bananas honey and pickles in bottles.

17km before Shilong is Umiam, also known as Barapani where a large take was formed after a hydro-electric dam was built across a stream. In recent years this has become an incresingly popular place for outings and weekend visits. The Orchid lake resort designed by the famous architects charles correa and constructed amongst pine wood overlooks the lake. Flurries of rain often sweep across the water body, scattering visitors, and splash loudly on the large bay windows of the lounge. There are facilities of rain often sweep across the water body, scattering visitors, and splash loudly on the large bay windows of the lounge.

Shillong became Assam's capital in 1874 and remained so far a century until the seat of government in Assam went to the plains and Meghalaya was established as a separate state.

The city derives its from the deity Shyllong or Lei Shyllong which is worshipped at the Shillong peak 10kms from the main town and 1,965 metres above sea level. This is the highest point in the state and commands a panoramic view of the Shillong valley. In the evening the city lights below gliter and twinkle like a giant christmas Tree.
