Meghalaya Tourist Places and Travel Attractions


The Adobe of Clouds’ is an appropriate name for Meghalaya, a hill state that seems to reach for the low-lying clouds. This confused assemblage of hills and narrow vales, watered by numerous small streams, is also called the ‘Scotland of East’. A state blessed with natural beauty, it offers flora unique to India with a wealth of pines, firs, orchids and tropical vegetation. Its people who possess an extraordinary zest for life, are part of a matriarchal society, where the women do all the work while the men enjoy themselves. (Foreigners require ‘Restricted Area Permits’).
