India is extremely diverse, and there is no place more diverse in India than the Northeast. Over the many years, all my travels never took me there but this year I finally managed to go. Meghalaya is a state in Northeast India and one of the easier states to get to. There is only a road connection that is reliable but it is worth the 3 hour trip from Guwahati in Assam.

Here are my photos from 3 parts of Meghalaya.
Dawki - at the border of India and Bangaladesh, this is at the bottom of the mountains by the Dawki river. A few kilometers north is the village of Mawlynnong, once voted Asia's cleanest village. There is also a lovely natural, Living Root Bridge.

Umiam Lake - views here are similar to waht I saw in Scotland, thus making the moniker true.
