About Shillong 

Shillong is the capital of Meghalaya, one of the smallest states in India and home to communities of Khasi, Jaintia and Garos. It is said that the rolling hills around the town  remind us of the European settlers of Scotland. Hence, Shillong is known as ‘Scotland of the East’. The months of March and April are spring in Meghalaya, except evenings to be a little nippy early on, especially in the higher altitudes. This means that Meghalaya highlands, especially the central Khasi Hills, become an oasis for travellers who want to escape the burning heat of the Indian Plains.
