After I determined to go to North-East of India in Apr 09, I had a variety of apprehensions in my thoughts as a result of our pre-conceived notification arising out of adversarial media studies about North East. But I used to be so decided to go to as I felt that it was a god despatched alternative. So as to add gas to my apprehensions, a bomb blast incident befell at Guwahati simply someday previous to our departure. However it by no means deterred our enthusiasm and we boarded the Air India flight as per the schedule. It was a morning flight from Delhi. Air India served us a sizzling and scrumptious breakfast. Whereas relishing the breakfast, we had a chance to see the aerial view of lovely tea gardens of Bagdogra the place our flight landed on our solution to Guwahati. Once we reached Guwahati airport, a cool breeze welcomed us. On the best way to our Visitor Home, we have been passing by way of lovely buildings of the town. We have been in a position to spot Guwahati College, Excessive Courtroom and different necessary landmarks of the town. Lastly, we reached the well-known Kamakhya temple. We have been amazed to see the large crowd standing on the queue to pay their obeisance to God. What we actually stunned that the day past bomb blast by no means had any influence on the lifetime of Guwahati residents as the entire metropolis seemed as ordinary as every other regular day.
Subsequent day early morning we proceeded to Shillong. Our journey from Guwahati to Shillong was not solely memorable but in addition a feast to the eyes. Once we reached Shillong, we have been fully awestruck over the great thing about Shillong. Its distinctive buildings, neat and clear roads, folks with colourful apparel added extra magnificence to the town. Initially we had problem in saying the names of the roads of Shillong because it all resemblance Chinese language names. On our sight seeing journey, from Shillong peak we may in a position to see the entire metropolis of Shillong. It was a panoramic expertise. Elephant falls not solely enthralled us by its magnificence but in addition its serene environment. We felt recent and received rejuvenated after our boating on the most lovely Wards Lake. Musical fountain at this place was merely very good. I used to be amazed to see 18 holes Golf Course the biggest Golf Course in Asia. I grew to become spellbound over its lush inexperienced lawns. Our solely disappointment in Shillong was that I couldn’t in a position to see the well-known Don Bosco Museum because it was closed as a result of Easter holidays. The local weather of Shillong actually soothes each my thoughts and physique.
After my sight seeing journey to Shillong, I proceeded to our dream vacation spot. Sure it was Cheerapunji, the wettest place on earth (this document has now been snatched away by a village known as Mawsynram simply 10 kms away from Cherrapunji). I joined with a performed tour to Cheerapunji in a Meghalaya Transport Company Bus. The second we boarded the bus, the information welcomed us and began briefing us concerning the significance of Cheerapunji in tolerable English. After his briefing, we actually received exited to see our dream vacation spot. Cherrapunji is stuffed with big mountains, lovely valleys and pleasing water falls. Actually it’s the most picturesque place we now have ever visited. Noh-ka-Likai falls was an absolute magnificence. We couldn’t take our eyes away from it so long as we stand there. Gushing sound of water and reflection of rainbow on the finish nonetheless lingering in our thoughts. It was actually a scenic magnificence and value to observe. If you’re bit adventurous you’ll be able to go to Mawsmai caves. Chances are you’ll underestimate its depth whereas coming into the cave. Earlier than popping out of the caves, you’ll miss few coronary heart beats on the best way. We have been fully excited to see the seven sisters the place seven water falls appeared in a row. We couldn’t imagine our eyes as we watched the Bangaldesh border from Cherrapunji. It was actually a life time alternative.
I loved the entire journey. It’s actually a stunning place and it was one in every of my finest holidays which I’ll bear in mind for ever.
