My first day in Shillong started with a scrumptious breakfast and then we got a taxi and headed straight to Elephant Falls. Elephant Falls has three lovely waterfalls and entry isn’t very expensive. You will have to pay to take your cameras and smartphones in. We paid around ₹120.
R.B’s had cakes, muffins, cookies and the works. Too much baking powder but some of the things tasted good. Ask for their recommendations to pick something you can have with tea. We also went to a supermarket on the street where we got some essentials.
There is a sky walk at the top with a view of Shillong that you shouldn’t miss. You must also not miss the documentary that tells you about the rich and multi-cultural lifestyles of the indigenous peoples of NE India on the floor right below the sky walk. You will also find some snacks there.
After the museum we went to Hydari Park.
The park is a nice place to relax after a long day. There are also some animals in the park so if you are taking a kid along don’t miss looking at them. It was quite fun, we saw a pair of rather large griffons get into a fight. Amazing!
Afterwards we went to the main market again to look at the imported clothes market. We didn’t find a lot of fun stuff but then we went to get some coffee at cafe coffee day and that cheered us up. We got back late and watched some TV before bed.
