About the Venue
Nestled away in the hills of eastern sub-Himalayas is undoubtedly one of India’s most beautiful state – Meghalaya. Aptly named as ‘the abode of clouds’, the state has also been given the accolade of “Scotland of the East” for its gentle rolling hills shrouded in gentle mist. Famous for its abundant rainfall, living root bridges, virgin forests, breathtaking waterfalls, clear rivers and a network of caves, Meghalaya is a land of pristine landscapes and natural beauty. Shillong, the bustling capital city of Meghalaya is a must-visit for nature and heritage lovers with its neat Victorian bungalows and little churches dotting the narrow roads that curl through the hills filled with tall pine trees. Perched at an altitude of 1,491m above sea level, Shillong got its name from U Lei Shyllong, a powerful deity revered by the local people. The presence of many well reputed educational institutions, many of them established by various missionary groups make Shillong the hub of education for the entire north-east. Known as the Rock Capital of India, Shillong is a city that is famous for music, its unique culture and cheerful people.
