WELCOMING WITH FLOWERS
Shillong is all set to welcome visitors and tourists with flowers. The Rotary Club of Shillong had planted 1200 saplings along the Guwahati Shillong Road in the portion of the highway wherein stands the sacred U Lum Sohpetbneng, the umbilical heavenly peak within a span of 500 metres in the vicinity of Umaiam lake. The flowers include the Bougainvilea species of flowers of purple, yellow and white colours. Over and above the scenic beauty of the Umiam lake, would greet the visitors of cherry blossom flower trees which bloom in autumn season. This would also help in the protection of the environment and ecology of the Umiam in Ri Bhoi.
