Let the bud of your romance bloom at the paradise called Shillong
Hill stations are places where the bud of romance blooms into flowers. The softness of the petals, the vibrance of its core, the aroma, the tender touch and the wonderful feeling are all hidden in hill stations. Perhaps that is why such places often get their mentions in literary works. Shillong is one such name that has been honoured by the greatest bard of all times, Rabindra Nath Tagore. If the ‘just married’ tag is still stuck on you and you wish to see your romance bloom, Shillong is the tub where you should plant the tree.
Situated at an altitude of over 4900 feet, Shillong is the capital of the North East Indian state Meghalaya, which is geographically as well as philosophically, the abode of clouds. However, the administrative identity of Shillong doesn’t matter for people like you who are in search of romantic honeymoon spot. The question is why you should visit Shillong. The counter question would be why not? The landscape of Shillong is absolutely stunning. The quint hill town is surrounded by beautiful rolling hills which creates a photo finish look. The beauty of Shillong town has fetched her the title ‘Scotland of the East’ and it came from the European settlers.
Located in between Surma and Brahmaputra valley, Shillong offers a wonderful climatic condition, something that honeymooners love the most. The town being once dominated by the Britishers, still bears an English appeal, which allures visitors. The wooden houses built in British architectural pattern, the stiff roads, the beautiful Wards Lake, Lady Hydari Park, panoramic view of the town and its surroundings from Shillong Peak and of course the undulating green paradise at Shillong Golf Course will make you feel this is a place that God has made for you and the person you love.
There are lot more to see in Shillong which include a number of museums, zoo and churches as well as shopping zones. However, a walk through the hilly roads of Shillong on an early winter morning with fog disappearing quickly to reveal the heavenly beauty of Nature is enough to help the bud of your romance finally bloom.
