Separating the Assam valley from the plains of Bangladesh, hilly Meghalaya - the 'abode of clouds' - is a cool, wet and pine-fresh mountain state set on dramatic horseshoes of rocky cliffs. Cherrapunjee and Mawsynram are statistically the wettest places on earth. Most of the rain falls between June and September, creating very impressive waterfalls and carving out some of Asia's longest caves. Gifted with ample scenic beauty and abundant vegetation, it presents a panorama of lush rolling hills, heather-covered slopes, breathtaking beautiful waterfalls, mountain springs, moving mists, silent lakes and multitude of flora and fauna.
Shillong, the capital of Meghalaya, is situated in the centre of a high plateau within Khasi hills. It has been called 'the Scotland of the South ' because of its elevation 1496 m above sea level. The highest peak in the State is the Shillong peak 1965 m. Nokrek in the Garo hill district is the next peak. Shillong is one of the best known hill resorts in India. It derives its name from the deity Shyllong whose dwelling place is said to be on the Shyllong Peak over the township. Homeland of the Garos, who originally inhabited Torua, a, province in Tibet. Garo hills is known for its abundance of wildlife.
Two mountain ranges-the Arabella range and the Tura range-pass through the Garo hills forming the great Balpakram Valley in between.
