The romantic city of Shillong has been one of the important tourist desitnations of the North East. It is often referred to as the "Scotland of the East" due to its striking similarity with the Scottish Highlands. The city derives its name from "Leishyllong" - the Superpower or God who is believed to be residing on the Shillong Peak overlooking the Shillong City. Lying in the cradle of the tall pine conifers and pineapple shrubs, Shillong's undulating terrain is a constant source of attraction for tourists from both home and abroad. The Khasi, Jaintia and Garo tribes add colour to this Hill City. Amongst the must visits in Shillong are its waterfalls, peaks and lakes.
