Meghalaya

WELCOME TO MEGHALAYA

 

 

Literally it is the Abode of the Clouds, the name Meghalaya describes the climatic phenomenon that brings torrents of rain to its mountainous terrain. No wonder the two most wettest places on earth 'Mawsynram' and 'Cherrapunjee' are found here.

 

This hilly state has been called ‘a patch of beauty and grace’ and is famed as 'the Scotland of the East'. It is linked to the Borail Range, an offshoot of the Himalayan Mountains.

 

The refreshing mountain air, the whispering pines, the exotic flora and fauna, the caves – all stretch out the tourist a tremendous taste of beauty. Here’s Nature in all its glory. Limpid lakes, expansive rivers, babbling a stream breaking into waterfalls, twisting and turning, disappearing in the jungle, …this is Meghalaya.

 

Meghalaya has a total geographical area of 22,429 sq. km. It is the third largest State in the North East in terms of geographical area. The State has vast natural resources of coal, limestone, kaolin, granite etc. The Khasis, the Jaintias and the Garos form the major ethnic groups of original inhabitants of the State.
