If India was a desi family, Shillong would be that one beautifulover-achieving cousin that has it all! From mountains to plateaus, to rivers and oceans — everything. And some parts of it are so breathtaking that they stick to your soul — like success sticks to the over-achieving-cuz. It goes without saying that, Shillong is probably one of the most beautiful parts of the country.
