Shillong is the capital of Meghalaya. And as soon as you reach Meghalaya, you get to know why Meghalaya is named Meghalaya. You have to go by Guwahati train first to reach Shillong. And then from Guwahati you can go by bus or jeep. To travel from Guwahati to Shillong you may have to spend ₹ 400. Well let me tell you that there is also an airport in Shillong. But there are very few flights here. Khasi language is spoken in Meghalaya. But you will not face any problem due to the language.
So let’s first go to Shillong, the capital of Meghalaya.

After this you can also go to the golf links of Shillong. Well there is nothing special to see here. I went here too. When I moved here, the Air Force air show was going on at that time. In such a situation, I also got to see the air show. Well the entry here is absolutely free. If you have extra time to roam, you can go here.

Police Market Shillong
The police market of Shillong is the largest and main market of the entire Shillong. Here you will see a lot of congestion. All the buses and means of transportation to and from Shillong are run from here. It is also the main bus stand of Shillong. All the tourists who come to Vagaira shop from the police market in Shillong. Here you will get everything you need from clothes at affordable rates. You can also shop for local things here.
Light loom Shillong
Went to see the light loom on the second day. It is located a short distance from Shillong, so you can hire Scooty for this. I also did scooty hair. The road is very good for light looms. But I found the road in 2 km of the last very bad. Because then the construction work of the road was in progress.
You will find very few tourists in Light Loom. Because most people do not know about this place. Here you will get to see more fog. If the weather is clear then you will get to see great views here.
Later went to Smit. It is a small market of local people. Where you can buy clothes. You will also find local clothes here.

Like Lightroom, Sweet Fall is also an unknown tourist destination for tourists. In such a situation, you will find very few tourists here. You will get great views on the Sweet Fall. For entry here, you have to take a ticket of ₹ 10. But it is a value-for-money place. You will have to descend some distance to reach the Sweet Fall.
