There are many things that attract tourists from all over the globe, specially the Pyongyang Lake, the monastery and the famous Leh market where you can get almost all kinds of silver jewelry at reasonable prices! The magnetic hill is a sight to watch as this is the only mountain where one can witness the force of gravity. One has to be there to experience the high adrenalin rush when his or her vehicle switches off and is pulled by the sheer magnetic pull! Wow….a must to visit place, I say.
Also known as the ‘abode of the clouds’, Shillong personifies beauty in all respects.
