I visited Meghalaya in the summer of this year and I must admit that it stands true to its designated name as the Abode of Clouds. The scenic beauty is mesmerizing and the weather is just certain to be uncertain. I flew from Bhubaneswar to Guwahati and then took a share Cab from Guwahati to Shillong for 700 rupees. The cost though is 500 rupees per head with 4 travellers in a cab, excluding the driver. Since we were 3 persons only we settled for 700 each. There was traffic congestion at couple of places while getting out of Guwahati city, but once we left the city behind, the roads were a breeze. It rained for quite sometime during the journey and we took a whooping 4 hours to reach Shillong instead of 2 hours.
