Hi everyone! So I’m finally here. It’s been a long time I wrote something. However if you happen to follow my instagram handle @ambersityblog, you’ll know mostly what I’ve been up to. 😀 Having a busy time on the personal front, so really couldn’t make time to scribble. Sorry for that. However I do have a series of posts lined up for you from my trip to Shillong last week. 🙂 Hope it comes out useful to those of you looking for a vacay there.
Planning for the abode of the clouds in the prime monsoon season came with its risks. But I had decided upfront not to let it dampen my spirits. 😀 Even if it rained, I was prepared to spend my days indoors sipping on flavorful Assam tea and lazing my day out amidst mountains. 🙂 Thankfully though, the rains were merciful during our stay there. In fact the waterfalls were in full flourish that made me oh-so-happy about my decision.
The series Meghalaya Diaries on the blog will be primarily divided into three parts. This is to not place a lot of content in a post. And make things easier for you. 🙂 Believe me when I say that I will keep my posts brief. 😛
Shillong in the foothills of the Himalayas makes for a dreamy destination. We flew down to Guwahati and booked a cab for the capital of the abode of the clouds. Thanks to MMT, we got all our tickets in time and booked our stay with The Habitat Shillong. 🙂
Day 1 : Cherrapunji – Sohra and the Seven Sister Falls
It goes without saying Cherrapunji makes for a prime sightseeing locale on your trip to Meghalaya. We came across innumerable waterfalls en route to Sohra. With innumerable steps to descend to witness the beauty of every one of them save the Seven Sister Falls, I didn’t realize when my body got tired. Each of the beauties was as enthralling as the other. 🙂
Sohra is touted to be the wettest place on earth. Everything was so cloudy there, that we were literally walking among the clouds.
