Thank you Supratim-da! And after returning home from this short 3 days excursion of Shillong, I am getting to read about 3 tier waterfalls, short but beautiful hikes around Meghalaya. Its a very beautiful place waiting to be explored.

Cant agree more to this statement. Meghalaya is mesmerizing. Would love to go back again and again. Rated a well deserved 5 stars. Cheers.
Golam-da, Thank you for the good words.
But, we have been missing your writings lately. When can we expect one? Your style is so lucid and free flowing that I often keep going back to your travelogues at times, just to read it for pleasure.

Best,
Thank you Dada! Some places are classics - you keep going back without even getting tired. And for me, both Santiniketan and Darjeeling are two such places where I can keep going back to. Apart from the two restaurants that you have mentioned, theres a watering hole called Joey's Pub. Lovely place to be. But last I heard the owner passed away and his son/wife is keeping the place now.

You bet - if there are some places that define Darjeeling, then Glenary's is right up there.

That was a great travelogue, Sayakc. The best combination, of lots of great pictures and smaller amounts of succinct narration.

Going off the beaten path is something most of us dream of and you have done it.

Being from the south, I am always very interested reading travelogues which features the east of our country.
Thanks for sharing and keep traveling.

Cheerio!
