Meghalaya is a state in northeastern India. The name means "the abode of clouds" in Sanskrit. The state is bounded to the south by the Bangladeshi divisions of Mymensingh and Sylhet, to the west by the Bangladeshi division of Rangpur, and to the north and east by India's State of Assam. The capital of Meghalaya is Shillong. It is also known as the Scotland of the East. Meghalaya has abundant rainfall and sunshine around the year and is considered to be one of the richest botanical habitats in Asia. The entire North East India is an abode to heaven. I have been to Meghalaya,Assam, Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh. Each state has a lot to offer and lots to see. While it is difficult to discriminate a place as the most beautiful, my vote would go to Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh.
