Meghalaya - abode of the clouds OR Scotland of the East

Think of scenic hills, lovely valleys, winding rivers, waterfalls, dazzling mountain streams and lakes, and you are more than likely to stumble upon the name of the north eastern India state of India, Meghalaya which shares its boundaries with Assam in the north and the east, and Bangladesh in the south and west.

Wildlife

The state boasts of a good forest cover and its dense jungles offer a natural habitat for several species of wildlife. About 250 species of orchids could also be seen in the jungles of the state.

Balpakram is famous for its wild elephant population. Tigers, leopards, barking deer, sambars, bisons, hoolock gibbons, boars, apes and monkeys are the other wild animals found here.

Among reptiles, numerous types of snakes, poisonous and non-poisonous lizards could be seen here. As once goes higher he comes across a vast variety of birds. Besides, close to 500 species of butterflies are also found in Meghalaya and some of them are rather hard to find elsewhere.
