Imagine yourself as being in clouds all time, lush greenery in your feet and white clouds above your head; this is the beauty of Meghalaya.
Meghalaya, known as “Scotland of the East “and meaning as “Abode of Clouds” is the best place to be the name on your flight tickets. Meghalaya is deeply enriched with every element that a traveler looks for. It has numerous temples for those who seek peace. It has lush green forests, valleys, waterfalls for trekking enthusiasts and young peeps. It has long roads for bike riding.
Cleanest village in Asia is the pride of Meghalaya which should be visited by every Indian, rather Asian, to take an example of cleanliness. A different natural beauty exists in Meghalaya which has bridges, one of the most known is Living root bridge which is enough to keep a person there only due to its enchanting beauty.
If Meghalaya has this much beauty, why not lets visit this place and explore each point that this God gifted place has to offer. Those who visit it will surely say that it’s not the Scotland of the East; in fact Scotland is the “Meghalaya of the west”.
